In situ spectroscopic investigations of MoOx/Fe2O3 catalysts for the selective oxidation of methanol
Multicomponent oxide shell@core catalysts have been prepared, affording overlayers of MoO_x_ on Fe2O3. This design approach allows bulk characterization techniques, such as X-ray Absorption Fine Structure (XAFS), to provide surface sensitive information. Coupling this approach with _in situ_ methodologies provides insights during crucial catalytic processes. Calcination studies were followed by a combination of XAFS and Raman, and demonstrate that amorphous ... Read more
