Summary
The understanding of structure-property relationships is of fundamental importance for the optimization of a nanosized solid-state catalyst. Powder diffraction enables not only the determination of crystal structures of nanomaterials but also provides access to their microstructures and allows fascinating insights how catalysts behave under reaction conditions.
