The study of gas-solid interactions is of much importance for the understanding of the mechanisms of catalytic reactions. Such systems have traditionally been studied by flowing a gas of interest through a heatable, evacuable chamber containing a thin, free-standing pressed pellet of a solid (1). The preparation of so thin a pellet can be rather time-consuming. FT-IR Diffuse Reflectance (DR) is a popular technique for the study of solids (2-4). Little, if any, sample preparation is required and powdered catalysts may directly be analyzed. The evacuable, heatable chamber allows a sample to be studied at any temperature in a specific environment. When compared to the pellet technique, DR has the advantage of a larger sample surface area and, hence, more sites for interaction. The small optical path within the chamber minimizes potential spectral interference by the gas during the gas-solid experiment.
