Structure from Diffraction Methods

Author: Duncan W. Bruce
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
ISBN: 9781118695715
Release Date: 2014-06-12
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Inorganic materials show a diverse range of important propertiesthat are desirable for many contemporary, real-world applications.Good examples include recyclable battery cathode materials forenergy storage and transport, porous solids for capture and storageof gases and molecular complexes for use in electronic devices. Anunderstanding of the function of these materials is necessary inorder to optimise their behaviour for real applications, hence theimportance of 'structure–property relationships'. The chapters presented in this volume deal with recent advancesin the characterisation of crystalline materials. They include somefamiliar diffraction methods, thoroughly updated with modernadvances. Also included are techniques that can now probe detailsof the three-dimensional arrangements of atoms in nanocrystallinesolids, allowing aspects of disorder to be studied. Small-anglescattering, a technique that is often overlooked, can probe bothordered and disordered structures of materials at longer lengthscales than those probed by powder diffraction methods. Addressing both physical principals and recent advances in theirapplications, Structure from Diffraction Methodscovers: Powder Diffraction X-Ray and Neutron Single-Crystal Diffraction PDF Analysis of Nanoparticles Electron Crystallography Small-Angle Scattering Ideal as a complementary reference work to other volumes in theseries (Local Structural Characterisation and MultiLength-Scale Characterisation), or as an examination of thespecific characterisation techniques in their own right,Structure from Diffraction Methods is a valuable addition tothe Inorganic Materials Series.

Calorimetry and Thermal Methods in Catalysis

Author: Aline Auroux
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9783642119545
Release Date: 2013-09-18
Genre: Technology & Engineering

The book is about calorimetry and thermal analysis methods, alone or linked to other techniques, as applied to the characterization of catalysts, supports and adsorbents, and to the study of catalytic reactions in various domains: air and wastewater treatment, clean and renewable energies, refining of hydrocarbons, green chemistry, hydrogen production and storage. The book is intended to fill the gap between the basic thermodynamic and kinetics concepts acquired by students during their academic formation, and the use of experimental techniques such as thermal analysis and calorimetry to answer practical questions. Moreover, it supplies insights into the various thermal and calorimetric methods which can be employed in studies aimed at characterizing the physico-chemical properties of solid adsorbents, supports and catalysts, and the processes related to the adsorption desorption phenomena of the reactants and/or products of catalytic reactions. The book also covers the basic concepts for physico-chemical comprehension of the relevant phenomena. Thermodynamic and kinetic aspects of the catalytic reactions can be fruitfully investigated by means of thermal analysis and calorimetric methods, in order to better understand the sequence of the elemental steps in the catalysed reaction. So the fundamental theory behind the various thermal analysis and calorimetric techniques and methods also are illustrated.
