Abstract: Energy dispersive EXAFS (EDE) and diffuse reflectance infrared spectroscopy (DRIFTS) are combined synchronously at high time resolution (17 Hz) to probe how NO(g) reacts with γ-Al2O3 supported, metallic Rh nanoparticles of an average 11 Å diameter; a bent nitrosyl species is considered to be the key to the formation of N2O.
