Characterization of supported catalysts by transmission electron microscopy (review)

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

25 Scopus citations


In the present work several techniques for the characterization of real catalysts are reviewed. These include weak multi-beam images, topographic refraction images, dark field and micro-diffraction. With the combined use of these techniques it is possible to obtain the shape, crystal structure and reliable size distribution of metal particles. A method that permits the visualization of particles below to 10 Å, as well as the determination of the line substrate topography for supported catalysts is discussed.
