Catalysis is one of the most important technologies in the industrial world, controlling more than 90% of industrial chemical processes and essential for large-scale production of plastics and fuel. Exploring the most common type of catalysis used in industry, Electron Microscopy in Heterogeneous Catalysis provides a coherent account of heterogeneous catalytic processes and catalyst surface structure at the atomic scale as elucidated by electron microscopy techniques. The book addresses a number of issues that are fundamental to the understanding of heterogeneous catalysis by oxides and supported metals. The properties of a catalyst are governed by its microstructure and chemistry on an atomic scale, and electron microscopy methods are essential to directly analyze these properties. The book provides important information about active species, metastable-transient species, mechanisms of particle catalysis sintering, promoter-poisoning effects on an atomic scale, and catalyst support interactions on a microscale.

"This book deals with in situ dynamic observation and analysis of heterogeneous catalysis using environmental cells (EC) in transmission (TEM) and scanning electron microscopes (SEM). In general, it is based on outstanding and unique works carried out by the authors themsleves over the past three decades, who prioneered this key enabling area of materials science. It provides comprehensive and yet compact introductions to heterogeneous catalysis and electron microscopy and diffraction, followed by a detailed description of electron microscopy studies of oxide catalysis, zeolites and molecular sieves, supported small metal particles, and environmental catalysis. For those who are carrying out in situ dynamic studies of catalysis using EC in TEM and/or SEM, this book gives a state-of-the-art review of this field. More importantly, this book encourages those catalysis, students, and electron microscopists who are planning to perform in situ dynamic studies of catalysis.

Boyes have produced the authoritative text on Electron Microscopy of Heterogeneous Catalysts......Again, indispensable if this is your subject."
