- ... Zeolite activity and selectivity is often determined by the underlying proton and hydrogen-transfer reaction pathways. For the first time, we use single-molecule fluorescence microscopy to directly follow the real-time behavior of individual styrene-derived carbocationic species formed within zeolite ZSM-5. We find that intermittent fluorescence and remarkable photostability of carbocationic inter ...
