Fourier-Transform Infrared Spectroscopy in Heterogeneous Catalysis

  • A. T. Bell
Part of the Springer Series in Chemical Physics book series (CHEMICAL, volume 35)


Infrared spectroscopy has proven to be an extremely valuable method for obtaining information about the structure of species present at a catalyst surface [2.1–9]. Because infrared spectra can be acquired in the presence of a gas phase, and over a broad range of pressures and temperatures, it is often possible to obtain information about the working state of the catalyst. Such in situ studies have helped to establish whether an adsorbate undergoes rearrangement or decomposition upon adsorption, and in a limited number of instances has led to the identification of reaction intermediates.
