In this project, we will focus on the physico-chemical processes of crystalline catalytic solids, like Metal-organic Frameworks and zeolites. Using advanced in-situ Scanning Probe Microscopy techniques, like liquid-phase Atomic Force Microscopy, Kelvin Probe Force Microscopy and Nano-IR Spectroscopy, the nucleation and growth, stability and catalytic activity are studied. These techniques, complemented by UV-Vis and IR spectroscopy, yield a better understanding of the properties of such solid thin films or single crystals.
