Abstract

original image

Color X-ray images can be obtained by X-ray diffraction computed tomography (XRD-CT) where the mapping of the diffraction signal from the interiors of solid objects enables material-specific imaging. In their Communication on page 10 148 ff., S. D. M. Jacques et al. describe the first time-resolved XRD-CT experiment, which reveals the mechanism by which a catalyst evolves from its precursor during the preparation of millimeter-sized industrial hydrogenation catalyst body.
