Revolutionizing reaction engineering and catalysis through in-situ and Operando spectroscopy
Short course on coupling the basic principles of reactor design with molecular spectroscopic techniques in order to measure accurately the kinetics of complex reactions. Efforts were placed on developing an understanding on the changes occur on active sites.
