Abstract

Highlights of our pioneering development of atomic resolution in situ environmental transmission electron microscope (ETEM) for direct probing of gas-solid reactions and in situ nanosynthesis are described. Dynamic studies on supported nanoparticle catalysts and carbon nanotubes under different reaction environments have been carried out. The results provide deep insights into the dynamic nanostructure of the materials and their mode of operation.
