Chemistry for Materials

Rising demand throughout the globe for improved solutions for clean energy conversion and storage, as well as for novel synthetically engineered materials are driving materials chemists and engineers to develop better performing catalysts, polymers and composites. 

To understand performance of catalysts and polymer-based materials requires characterization solutions that allow observation of structure, composition as well as dynamic property changes in these particles and materials, all at the micro- and nanoscale. It is important that researchers are able to visualize and to analyze structure and morphology, as well as determine chemical composition, often under near real-world operational conditions.

Thermo Fisher Scientific's solutions are developed with these needs in mind, e.g. with improved sensitivity to detect structures and chemical elements. Materials chemists and engineers today are discovering that electron microscopy can be a powerful tool for their research. As an example, with the ability to perform in situ dynamic experiments on materials in their natural states, utilizing unique, dedicated environmental chambers, these scientists are improving selectivity, activity and stability of catalyst particles, as well as engineering high quality polymer-based structures and organic or composite materials, allowing them to meet the growing demand for such materials in today's world.
