A technique for analysing transition metal ion dispersion on mesoporous silica support using SEM observation was developed. In the presence of metal ion dispersion, no white point caused by metal oxide could be observed in YAGBSE, BE and COMPO mode images. By contrast, a white point could be clearly observed.
