Trade name
AutoChem III 2930
Technical description

Dynamic chemisorption and temperature-programmed reaction measurements by the AutoChem III provide performance metrics that are critical to developing the new catalyst materials that will drive technologies for carbon capture and utilization, the hydrogen economy and other net zero technologies. The AutoChem III enables this work through major improvements in laboratory productivity and measurement sensitivity.

Conditions for providing infrastructure

The sharing of equipment requires the prior agreement of the team leader. Sharing takes place on a collaborative basis or for a fee, under additional orders. A signed agreement defining the terms and conditions of sharing is required before research can begin. Simulations of the spectra obtained by means of the accompanying dedicated software are the subject of a separate collaboration agreement. The sharing of this apparatus is subject to entry in the scientific and research apparatus time shee
