Abstract

This dissertation is devoted to the attractive and rapidly developing field of
heterogeneous catalysts with isolated metal sites. The following research
questions served as the source of inspiration for it: • How to design a catalyst with isolated metal sites? • How to synthesize and develop a catalyst with isolated metal sites? • How to characterize a catalyst with isolated metal sites?
In the first part of this dissertation (Chapters 2-3) the route for design,
synthesis, characterization and further modification of heterogeneous
catalysts with isolated sites is described, using the development of a
catalyst for direct conversion of methane to methanol as an example. The
second part (Chapters 4-5) investigates the applicability of X-ray based
analysis techniques (primarily X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and
X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS)) for the characterization of such
catalysts
