Micromeritics, Malvern Panalytical and Netzsch will be hosting a two-and-a-half-day workshop on analytical techniques and methods for characterizing and optimizing Heterogeneous catalysts. The workshop is targeted at all people working in the field of Heterogeneous Catalysts including fundamental research, production and end use applications, and will cover the following topics;

-              Physisorption / Chemisorption
-              Thermal Analysis
-              Particle Characterization
-              Structural and Elemental Analysis

The workshop will also include practical sessions where delegates will see the various techniques being demonstrated by a team of application specialists.
