This review describes the ways in which synchrotron infrared radiation can be used to perform infrared spectroscopy on catalyst materials. The enhanced brightness of the synchrotron source over a conventional laboratory source allows for microspectroscopy to be performed on single crystals of microporous materials down to 10 microns in size. A second application was performed in the far-infrared region, which is generally difficult using laboratory instruments. The review presents typical results from both areas and discusses future prospects.
