The Use of Infrared Spectroscopy to Study Surface Groups and Adsorbed Species on Catalysts

  • Michael R. Basila


In recent years, the application of spectroscopic techniques to problems in surface chemistry and catalysis has been growing at an ever-increasing rate. The most popular technique has been infrared spectroscopy followed by nuclear magnetic resonance and electron spin resonance.
