Chemisorption Analyzers

Chemisorption analyzers reveal information about the surface structure and chemistry of catalytic materials. In flowing gas chemisorption, small injections of adsorptive gas are administered into a cleaned sample, where a calibrated thermal conductivity detector (TCD) measures the amount of adsorptive gas or vapor that is taken up by active metals. Chemisorption analysis selectively evaluates the active surface of these materials where only molecules capable of forming a chemical bond with the adsorptive gas will be analyzed. The information obtained by chemisorption analysis provides a greater understanding of the chemical performance of catalysts, which can be useful in enhancing the design and production phases of these materials.
