Title: Virtual Flight through a Catalyst Particle

Abstract

This visualization of the experimental data shows how scientists mapped the distribution of chemical elements in a single fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) particle and merged it with structural information about the pore networks. Because of the high resolution at which they mapped the catalyst, they were able to look deep into the pores and learn more about the metal poisoning reaction. The changing colors of the "fog" inside the pores reflect the changing chemistry.
