6_05b/2014Back Cover: Characterization of a Fluidized Catalytic Cracking Catalyst on Ensemble and Individual Particle Level by X-ray Micro- and Nanotomography, Micro-X-ray Fluorescence, and Micro-X-ray Diffraction (ChemCatChem 5/2014)

Many techniques, bigger picture The cover picture shows a combination of advanced characterization techniques: X-ray micro- and nanotomography and micro-X-ray fluorescence are used to characterize a commercial spent equilibrium fluid catalytic cracking catalyst at both the ensemble and individual particle level. In their Full Paper on p. 1427 ff., S. R. Bare et al. explain how the in-depth characterization study presents a robust methodology that provides an understanding of the equilibrium fluid catalytic cracking catalyst ECAT at both the micro- and nanometer scales.
