a correlation between the atomic structure and activity of nanoparticles is a
the heart of catalysis research. We have recently developed a novel
micro-electro-mechanical system device – the so-called nanoreactor
- that allows atomic-resolution electron
microscopy of catalysts at ambient pressure level to be combined with
simultaneous activity measurements. The nanoreactor represents a true paradigm shift in the
research of catalytic reactions.
project will focus on monitoring the dynamic formation of MoS2 structures in our hydrotreating
catalysts during their activation by exposure to ambient pressures of hydrogen
and hydrogen sulfide.
