Chemisorption for Catalysis Characterization


Chemisorption is one of the most useful techniques to characterize the heterogenous catalysts. In contrast to physisorption, chemisorption involves the formation of strong bonds between adsorbate molecules and specific surface locations known as active sites.  During this webinar, we will focus on analyzing extensive catalyst characteristics through inert and active gas absorption. The webinar will cover the following topics:

  • Chemisorption isotherms and their significance
  • Automatic and Manual pulse titration
  • Temperature programmed reactions ( TPR/TPO/TPD)
  • Deconvolution of peaks and QC-fit software
  • Determination of active surface area, dispersion and average crystallite size
