The development of a membrane reactor for the dehydrogenation of isopropanol
(Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2003-04)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Both porous and dense hydrogen selective membranes have recently been an active area of research. The combination of a reactor and a separator in the form of a membrane reactor is seen as a feasible ...
Evaluation and improvement of dehydrogenation conversion and isomerization selectivity in an extractor Catalytic Membrane Reactor
(Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2005-03)
Recent advances in inorganic material preparation for membrane fabrication have extended the use of membranes to high temperature and chemically harsh environments. This has allowed inorganic membranes to be integrated ...
Optimising catalyst and membrane performance and performing a fundamental analysis on the dehydrogenation of ethanol and 2-butanol in a catalytic membrane reactor
(Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2000-12)
Stricter government regulations and higher energy costs have forced the chemical industry to focus more on environmentally friendly processes and to reduce energy consumption. The main goals of chemical companies are to ...
