Spectroscopy and quantum calculations uncover the secrets of alumina supports

Using quantum calculations and the first molecular model of the edges of gamma alumina crystallites, a material widely employed in catalysis, teams from IFPEN and the CRMN revisited the NMR spectrum assignment established in the literature up until now.
