IR spectroscopy detects that oxygen defects act as active centres

IR-Catalysis-sIn the chemical industry, heterogeneous catalysis is vital for the manufacture of basic or fine chemicals, in catalytic converters of exhaust gas and for the chemical storage of solar energy. A new infrared spectroscopy method can study processes at surfaces of oxides used as catalysts.
