CCL was granted access to the National Synchrotron Light Source (NSLS) at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) before its shutdown at the end of this year. Stephen Crowley, Robyn Smith and Michaela Wagar were successful in generating first-of-its-kind data by using high energy X-rays to probe the conformational and oxidation state of catalysts during reaction. This work was made possible through collaboration with Dr. Anatoly Frenkel and his research team at Yeshiva University.Stephen Crowley was interviewed on the impending shutdown of the beam and his overall experience at the NSLS which can be found below and on the BNL website.
