In situ studies by X-ray spectroscopic methods, especially by X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS), have contributed important insights into catalytic reactions and the underlying molecular mechanisms. While the extended X-ray absorption fine structure (EXAFS) region can provide information on the geometric structure around a metal center, the XANES (X-ray absorption near edge structure) region of XAS spectra contains information on the electronic structure. In K-edge XAS experiments, the first… CONTINUE READING
