Standard Techniques for Catalyst Characterization

Our analytical and characterization capabilities are not only captured by the in house facilities but also enlarged by contracts to local universities. A selection of widely used external services is listed below:
  • ICP: Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry  (Shanghai)
  • XPS: X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (Shanghai, Lille, Lyon)
  • TEM: Transmission Electron Microscopy (Shanghai)
  • SEM: Scanning Elecronic Microscopy (Shanghai)
  • UV-vis: Ultraviolet Visible Spectroscopy (Shanghai, Lyon)
  • Operando IR (Shanghai, Caen)
  • Raman (Shanghai, Lyon)
