Development of a Quality Control Procedure for Characterizing Supported Nickel Catalysts

Quality control and instrument maintenance are important functions in all laboratories. Periodically running a QC procedure like the one described in this Note can provide early detection of instrument contamination, failing instrument components, or gas contamination, factors that can negatively affect experimental results. This Altamira Note discusses how a quality control procedure was developed for a supported nickel catalyst used in hydrogenation reactions.
