Abstract

original image

Zeolithe im Rampenlicht: Eine Kombination aus Rasterröntgenmikroskopie (siehe Bild) und Bulk-Methoden liefert Einblicke in die nanoskopische Verteilung von Al und C in ZSM-5-Zeolithen während der Reformierung von Methanol zu Olefinen. Die verschiedenen Katalysatorleistungen konnten mit Unterschieden in der räumlichen Verteilung der Kohlenwasserstoffe in Verbindung gebracht werden.
