The studies of the structure, phase composition and phase transformation of functional materials such as catalysts, sorbents, ion conductors, coatings, etc. are performed at Beamlines No.2 and No.6 of VEPP-3 and No.8 of VEPP-4M electron storage rings at Siberian Synchrotron and Terahertz Radiation Centre. The Beamline No.2 is dedicated to high resolution X-ray powder diffraction experiments; the Beamline No.6 operates as X-ray diffractometer for In Situ and Operando studies, while the facility at Beamline No.8 provides high energy X-ray diffraction, up to 100-120 keV. The report comprises description of the experiments on the phase composition of Ga-activated aluminum, oxygen mobility in Ruddlesden-Popper phases, reduction process of mixed oxides, local structure of heterogeneous catalysts by means of Total Scattering and Pair Distribution Functions technique, and so on.
