Efficient parallel screening of combinatorial libra ries is one of the most challenging aspects of the highthroughput (HT) heterogeneous catalysis workflow. Today, a number of methods have been used in HT catalyst studies, including various optical, massspectrometry, and gaschromatography techniques. Of these, rapidscanning Fouriertransform infrared (FTIR) imaging is one of the fastest and most versatile screening techniques. Here, the new design of the 16channel HT reactor is presented and test results for its accuracy and reproducibility are shown. The performance of the system was evaluated through the oxidation of CO over commercial Pd/Al2O3 and cobalt oxide nanoparticles synthesized with different reducerreductant molar ratios, surfactant types, metal and surfactant concentrations, synthesis temperatures, and ramp rates.
