Kinetic studies made easy with non-ambient XRD – observing reactions in-situ

Description:

Non-ambient X-ray diffraction (NA-XRD) is an important tool to understand the behavior of materials of any kind during varying temperature and pressure conditions and also under different gas atmospheres. Studying dynamic structural changes (during solid-state gas reactions for instance) or the performance of catalysts requires specialized non-ambient XRD equipment, so-called reactor chambers. With the XRK 900 Reactor Chamber from Anton Paar, kinetic studies can be performed easily and reliably.

In this webinar you will not only learn about the technical details of the instrument, such as how homogeneous temperatures and gas distribution can be established, but you will also get tips and tricks for optimizing you results. Additionally, you will get some insights into exciting applications that are made possible by the XRK 900.

Content of the webinar:

  • Basics of studying reactions under non-ambient conditions
  • XRK 900 reactor chamber: technical details and solutions
  • How to optimize experiments
  • Application examples

Target group:

  • Anyone performing non-ambient XRD experiments: from beginners to experts
  • Anyone performing non-ambient XRD studies of solid-state or solid-state gas reactions
