The Application of Mössbauer Spectroscopy to Metallic, Bimetallic, and Mixed Metal Oxide Catalysts

  • Frank J. Berry


The ability of Mössbauer spectroscopy to examine authentic solid catalysts in their working gaseous environments has conveyed a special power to the technique for the characterization of heterogeneous catalysts. The application of Mössbauer spectroscopy in this particular field has been comprehensively reviewed on two occasions in the recent past [1,2] and in this article of restricted length only a few systems have been selected, mainly from work reported since the last reviews, to demonstrate the suitability of Mössbauer spectroscopy for the study of solid catalysts and to illustrate its Potential power in the examination of metallic, bimetallic, and mixed metal oxide catalysts
