M. Campo, A. Tanaka, A. Mendes and J.M. Sousa,     University of Porto, Portugal; University of Trás-os-Montes e Alto Douro, Portugal

Abstract:

Industrial use of membranes for gas separation has been increasing over the past two decades. The most common gas separations are oxygen enrichment from air, carbon dioxide separation and hydrogen purification. Membranes for gas separation can have various natures, namely polymer, ceramic (e.g. zeolite), metallic, carbon or mixed matrix. For their development and application it is necessary to characterize these membranes according to their surface and inner morphologies, surface chemistry, mass transport parameters and mechanical ...
