Abstract

Refinements to established sample handling issues connected with the acquisition of inelastic neutron scattering (INS) spectra of heterogeneous catalyst samples are described. This involves modification of a reactor and improvements to gas handling apparatus. The latter includes provision of laboratory space and ventilation facilities that are suited to the increasingly wide range of catalytic samples being examined. INS measurements for CO hydrogenation over an iron-based Fischer-Tropsch catalyst recorded using the MARI spectrometer are presented to illustrate the applicability of the new arrangements.
