Using Neutron Scattering and Quantum Chemistry to Optimise Composites and Tune Catalyst Selectivity

Librational and low-energy vibrational (i.e. far-infrared) phenomena have long been associated with  functional  properties  of  material  and  molecular  systems.  However, accessing this ‘fingerprint’ region by standard spectroscopic methods is hindered by selection rules, sensitivity and energy resolution. Neutron scattering methods provide a solution, with associated phenomena now spatially, energetically and temporally intelligible in conjunction with quantum theory.
