Heterogeneous catalysts underpin a vast range of processes covering including chemical refining, pollution control and energy production. At the heart of these catalysts are metal particles/surfaces, often using a number of elements to give the desired performance, selectivity and stability. However the exact surface structure and composition of the alloys formed at the gas-metal interface is poorly understood, due to the inherent complexities of the reactive environment and catalyst form. Atom Probe Tomography has become a powerful tool to shed light on many of these details, offering new insights into how both model and real catalyst systems are engineered, along how they respond to their operating conditions. This talk will highlight progress in this vital field, outlining advances in both instrumental technologies and efforts to combine APT with a growing range of experimental and modelling tools to help develop better catalysts for future applications.
