Surface X-ray studies of catalytic clean technologies

Author affiliations

Abstract

The rational design of new heterogeneous catalysts for clean chemical technologies can be accelerated by molecular level insight into surface chemical processes. In situ methodologies, able to provide time-resolved and/or pressure dependent information on the evolution of reacting adsorbed layers over catalytically relevant surfaces, are therefore of especial interest. Here we discuss recent applications of surface X-ray techniques to surface-catalysed oxidations, (de)hydrogenations, C–C coupling, dehalogenation and associated catalyst restructuring, and explore how these may help to shape future sustainable chemistry.
