Watching catalysts at work in real-time and at real pressures with photoelectrons
Catalysts are our invisible helpers, cleaning exhaust from vehicles and industrial plants and helping synthesize more than 90% of all chemicals produced. In this talk, I will discuss how x-ray light from MAX IV together with novel ambient pressure x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy instrumentation can give us atomic-scale pictures and movies of our invisible catalytic metal and oxide helpers with and without graphene clothes on.
