In Situ Raman Spectroscopic Measurements Of Metal Oxides Under High Temperature

Transition metal oxides are compounds composed of oxygen bound to transition metals used in various applications such as heterogeneous catalysts. To study the mechanism of the catalytic process as well as monitor and optimize the reaction conditions, multiple analytical methods such as XAS, NMR, and Raman spectroscopy have been investigated. Raman spectroscopy has been widely utilized in in-situ catalytic process monitoring with metal oxides, even achieved multi-technique characterization by combining with other instrumentations. Download this application note for the results of using a high temperature Raman fiber probe for in situ spectroscopic measurements of metal oxides in harsh environments.
