We will use central facilities time (ISIS neutron and muon facility) to study the conversion of maleic to fumaric acid under high pressure and temperature conditions. Experiments performed in-house show that temperature of pressure alone do not significantly influence the conversion of maleic to fumaric acid; however, the combination of both does result in successful conversion. Neutron experiments will elucidate the conversion in-situ, as it progresses, and allow us to identify ciritcal conditions of temperature and pressure to cause this conversion.
