This webinar gives an introduction to the relevance of materials in catalysis, the challenges in their synthesis and their characterisation at atomic level.

The speakers present a protocol to determine the location of different types of metallic species within the zeolite framework and the quantification of the metal-metal (Pt-Sn) interactions. They then explore experimental issues, analysis of the experimental images using AI techniques based on clustering, and the use of special holders – along with image simulations to help you gain a better understanding.

By watching this webinar recording you will learn:

  • Advanced catalyst characterisation methods using TEM
  • Why STEM iDPC greatly benefits the imaging of beam sensitive porous catalyst materials
  • The challenges and solutions in zeolite based catalysts synthesis and characterisation
