    The complexation of NiCl2 with 2,2'-Bipyridine was followed using quasielastic neutron scattering to observe reaction progress. Water adsorption in chabazite with time resolution was observed using strain induced in the aluminosilicate framework with a high-resolution engineering diffractometer. These reactions illustrate the recent progress and possibilities in using neutron probes to observe realistic catalytic reactions as they progress.
