Title: High-throughput operando -ready X-ray absorption spectroscopy flow reactor cell for powder samples

Abstract

A high-throughput, operando-ready X-ray absorption spectroscopy catalytic reaction cell consisting of 4 parallel reactors was designed to collect X-ray absorption near edge structure and extended fine structure spectra under reaction conditions. The cell is capable of operating at temperatures from ambient conditions up to 773 K and pressures from ambient to 2 MPa in a variety of gas environments. The cell design is mechanically simple, and programmable operation at beamline 8-ID (NSLS-II, Brookhaven National Laboratory) makes it straightforward to use. Finally, reactor tube parts were available as-fabricated from commercial sources, while the heating jacket and cell mounting required custom machining.
