The evolution of an operating catalyst

Yearbook contribution by Prof. Serena DeBeer

Dry methane reforming (DMR) offers a way to convert harmful greenhouse gases into industrially useful syngas. Therefore, there is a growing interest in nickel-based catalysts for DMR.

In her 2020 Yearbook contribution, Prof. Serena DeBeer, Director of the Department of Inorganic Spectroscopy, describes probing a dry methane reforming catalyst by X-ray spectroscopy.
