About the book
CHARACTERIZATION OF POLYCRYSTALLINE CATALYTIC MATERIALS USING POWDER X-RAY DIFFRACTION discusses the most important scientific features of the characterization of polycrystalline and amorphous materials used as catalysts through the technique of powder X-ray diffraction. Structural studies using powder X-ray diffraction patterns from a laboratory X-ray source at ambient and non-ambient conditions are well documented with illustrations and example. The book describes the choice of various instrumental parameters to be used for of solutions from powder XRD to problems while preparing and using solid materials viz., zeolites, micro and mesoporous molecular sives, oxides, clays etc., as catalyst-composites.
