Determination of catalytic reaction mechanisms by isotopic frequency response

Author affiliations

Abstract

Efficient catalysts are of extraordinary importance for the development of efficient chemical processes as well as applications such as energy storage. Rational development of catalysts requires a mechanistic understanding of the catalytic reaction. Since steady-state investigations are insufficient to gain mechanistic understanding, transient methods such as SSITKA and frequency response have been developed. In this paper we provide a theoretical basis for a frequency response method based on variations in the isotopic composition of the reactant. This approach is particularly useful, since it permits transient investigations under quasi-steady state conditions and because the response is linear.
