Supported heterogeneous catalysts play an essential role in areas such as automotive exhaust abatement, energy storage/conversion and sustainable production of chemicals. In order to gain insight into properties such as activity and stability of these materials, catalysts must be studied in situ in reactive environments. Only a few experimental techniques allow for investigation of the materials at a local scale with atomic resolution while exposing samples to gases and elevated temperatures. Recent advances in high-resolution environmental transmission electron microscopy have show that the atomic configuration at surfaces and interfaces of a metal nanoparticle is a function of its surroundings. Similarly, the dynamics and hence stability of the catalyst are important parameters which can be studied using in situ microscopy.
