To compare the influence of different dealumination conditions on the molecular diffusion and reactivity of individual coffin-shaped ZSM-5 crystals a combination of Atomic Force Microscopy, High Resolution Scanning Electron Microscopy, Focused Ion Beam milling, X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy, Confocal Fluorescence Microscopy, UV-Vis micro-spectroscopy and synchrotron-based IR micro-spectroscopy has been used.
