In-situ/Operando X-ray Powder Diffraction
Real time monitoring of the formation of kinetic and thermodynamic products in a reaction is extremely important for the synthesis, isolation, and growth of new materials. Powder X-ray diffraction methods are proven to be an excellent probe for such in-situ/operando experiments . X-ray radiation of an appropriate wavelength can penetrate through the reaction vessel or device and provide diffraction information about solid-to-solid reactions, transformations, gas-to-solid interactions, liquid-to-solid crystal growth processes, and decomposition or intermediate products. Please check out some selected publications resulted by IMSERC users along with the list of other crystallographic services available in IMSERC.
