Understanding Chemical Kinetics by Operando Stimulated Raman Scattering Microscopy

Xiaoxing Xia | 23-LW-018

Executive Summary

We will develop an operando Stimulated Raman Scattering microscopy platform to directly observe chemical kinetics during electrocatalysis and polymerization reactions. We will take advantage of cutting-edge additive manufacturing capabilities and a newly acquired, state-of-the-art system to create microfluidic reactors integrated in Stimulated Raman Scattering microscopy setup for monitoring mass transport and reaction mechanisms during complex chemical processes with high spatiotemporal resolutions and molecular contrast.
