Although catalysis can be understood through steady-state experiments, it seems clear that transient experiments will usually furnish much additional information. Often steady-state data can be explained by a number of different models, but the results of transient experiments are usually so rich that only a detailed, complex model will come close to explaining the results. These ideas have long been applied in other fields, but in heterogeneous catalysis they have come into acceptance only during the last 15 years or so. Pioneering experiments were done by Wagner (1) in 1938, and Tamaru (2) became an advocate of the method in 1963, emphasizing the measurement of adsorption during catalysis, the essence of the transient method. A quantitative framework was laid out in 1967 (3), and its implementation was carried out a few years later by Kobayashi and Kobayashi (4) and by Yang et al. (5). Effects due to transport resistances must
