Table of Contents

Magnetic Resonance Imaging of Catalysts and Catalytic Processes (L.F. Gladden et al.).

Imaging of Supported Metal Nanocluster Catalysts in the Working State (P.L. Hansen et al.).

Model Catalyst Surfaces Investigated by Scanning Tunneling Microscopy (J.V. Lauritsen, F. Besenbacher).

Characterization of Solid Catalysts in the Functioning State by Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (M. Hunger, W. Wang).

Attenuated Total Reflection Infrared Spectroscopy of Solid Catalysts Functioning in the Presence of Liquid-Phase Reactants (Thomas Bürgi, A. Baiker).


Catalysis is the acceleration of a chemical reaction by a catalyst, a substance that notably affects the rate of a chemical reaction without itself being consumed or altered. Since 1948, Advances in Catalysis has filled the gap between the papers that report on and the textbooks that teach in the diverse areas of catalysis research. The editors of and contributors to Advances in Catalysis are dedicated to recording progress in this area.

Key Features
