Abstract

The use of infrared spectroscopy to probe the surface acidity of oxides and molecular sieves is reviewed. The experimental requirements and the type and nature of probe molecules available are also discussed. Special emphasis is given to the criteria that have to be met to arrive at a characterization of the solid that is useful for its catalytic application.
