NACAREI: Nanofluidic Catalytic Reaction Imaging
Research Project, 2023 – 2027

Novel imaging to detect how single nanoparticles contribute to catalytic reactions
Nanomaterials exhibit structural and functional heterogeneity amongst individual nanoparticles. Although microscopy techniques often provide static images of their chemical composition, morphology and structure, imaging the chemical activity of single nanoparticles is still challenging. Witnessing how the structure of chemical composition of a single nanoparticle affects the rate of a catalytic reaction is the holy grail of catalysis. It is also a key enabler for the rational design of next-generation catalyst materials for use in the energy and health sectors. The EU-funded NACAREI project proposes the development of a nanoimaging method of unprecedented resolution.
