Session Topics

  • Orals O1 - O5; Posters MP27 - MP33:
    New Advances in Reaction Cells Including Improved Time and Spatial Resolution
    This session will be focused on the instrumentation that has been developed that allows the operando spectroscopy data to be obtained. Particular focus will be on advances that have allowed improved time and spatial resolution.
  • Orals O6 - O10; Posters MP1 - MP14:
    Bridging the Gap Between Model and Technical Conditions
    This session will highlight those studies where an attempt has been made to bridge the gap between studies under well-controlled conditions and those under more technical conditions. Included in this session will also be those studies only on model catalysts or under model conditions (e.g. UHV).
  • Orals O11 - O13; Posters MP15 - MP21:
    Catalytic Bio-conversion Technologies
    The rapid growth area of catalytic bio-conversion technologies will be highlighted in this session. These studies could be either gas or liquid phase, and encompass a wide range of spectroscopic probes.
  • Orals O14 - O27; Posters TP15 - TP34:
    Multi-technique Approach to Operando Spectroscopy
    This session will highlight the complementary information and understanding that is obtained by probing the active catalyst using at least two probes in the same reaction cell, either simultaneously or sequentially. Examples include XAFS/FTIR, XAFS/UV-vis, UV-vis/NIR/Raman, XAFS/XRD.
  • Oral O28; Posters TP1 - TP8:
    Combining Operando Spectroscopy and Theoretical Studies
    This session will encompass studies where theoretical understanding (at any level) is added to the experimental operando spectroscopic studies and thus provides additional insight.
  • Orals O29 - O31; Posters MP22 - MP26:
    Homogeneous/Liquid Phase Catalysis
    This session will focus on research performed in the liquid phase or on homogeneous catalysts using any appropriate operando spectroscopy.
  • Orals O32 - O34; Posters TP9 - TP14:
    Electrocatalysis: Fuel Cells and Related Technologies

    This session will focus on all aspects of operando studies related to photo/electrocatalysis, from PEM fuel cells to water splitting.
