2_05/2010Cover Picture: The Catalytic Conversion of Thiophenes over Large H-ZSM-5 Crystals: An X-Ray, UV/Vis, and Fluorescence Microspectroscopic Study (ChemCatChem 5/2010)

The cover picture shows an individual zeolite H-ZSM-5 crystal, the interior of which acts as a black box during the catalytic conversion of thiophenes. In their paper on page 564 ff., Weckhuysen et al. demonstrate how, with the combined use of X-ray absorption, UV/Vis and confocal fluorescence microspectroscopy, the black box can be opened to provide chemical images of individual H-ZSM-5 zeolite crystals. Additionally, the approach provides information on the formation, alignment, and distribution of reaction products.
