For some decades now electron spectroscopy methods have been among the most important techiques for the elucidation of the atomic-scale structure of surfaces and their properties towards adsorption of molecules. Recently, new technical developments, for example implemented at both the French synchrotron radiation facilty SOLEIL and its Swedish counterpart MAX IV Laboratory, have opened the door towards the use of these electron spectroscopies under true chemical reaction conditions. I will discuss how this is possible and illustrate what can be gained from the development with examples from catalysis and oxide growth.
