This custom high pressure NMR tube holds the catalyst sample that will be inserted into the NMR magnet. The temperature-controlled probe contains the electronics that create the nuclear magnetic resonance signal arising from the magnetic field. The signal reveals structural information about the catalyst. Using high pressure NMR, PNNL researchers can watch the catalyst while it is operating, providing critical insight into how it works. PNNL researchers study catalysts that might be used to store electrical energy in chemicals and to pull the energy back out again. Such catalysts can be used for fuel cells to store and use renewable energy.
