Abstract

In-situ, synchronous MS/XANES reveals the Pd catalyzed selective aerobic oxidation of crotyl alcohol is regulated by the balance between the oxidation state and reducibility. Dynamic XANES measurements provide a new, rapid method to determine redox kinetics of nanoparticles and identify important parameters to optimize catalyst design.
