Announcing the establishment of the DICP-DENS Microscopy Centre

In line with the emphasis we place on multinational collaborations, we have partnered with the Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics in China in order to accelerate the fields of catalysis and sustainable energy and achieve results together. To celebrate the establishment of the DICP-DENS in-situ electron microscopy technology application laboratory, an exciting ceremony was recently held at DICP in which numerous speakers took the stage to share their areas of expertise.

Scientists find an alternate route towards CO2 reduction

Using the DENSsolutions Climate system, scientists found for the first time that endothermic reactions can be achieved at room temperature using localized surface plasmons. This paramount discovery is a leap forward in the fight against climate change and global warming.

In-situ imaging provides detailed insights on the dynamics of SMSI induced overlayer formation on catalyst particles

SMSI is a surface phenomena in which the migration of partially reduced oxide species, from the oxide support, covers the nanoparticle and thereby alters the chemisorption and catalytic properties. It can give rise to desired synergistic effects and increased selectivity. Now, using in situ TEM combined with other analytical techniques and theoretical modelling, researchers at ETH Zurich have been able to create a real time view of the SMSI phenomena.
