Keynote

We have developed and applied indirect nanoplasmonic sensing (INSP) to study real time nanoscale processes in catalysis, hydrogen storage/release, nanocalorimetry, phase transitions and oxidation/corrosion. Examples are presented for kinetics and light off for CO+O2 on Pt, NOx storage/release on Pt/BaO and particle size dependent kinetics and thermodynamics for H2/Pd.
