Insight into catalytic processes in confined spaces article in Nature Materials

A behind the paper perspective of our recent publication in Nature Materials (I. Lezcano-Gonzalez at al. Nat. Mater. (2020). https://doi.org/10.1038/s41563-020-0800-y)  Insight into catalytic processes in confined spaces Zeolites are used as industrial catalysts and are very effective at converting methanol to fuels such as gasoline and chemicals including aromatics or olefins. However, in order to improve efficiency and […]

Watch the webinar given by Prof. Andrew Beale on opportunities for studying catalytic materials with intense radiation sources; what, where, when and how.

It was in 1836 that Jöns Jacob Berzelius provided the first, basic description of a catalyst and its properties. Both the breadth and depth of our understanding of catalysts and catalytic processes has clearly progressed a lot since then – to a large extent this has been enabled by catalyst characterisation, performed increasingly in real […]
