Abstract

Pt/{esc}gc{esc}s-Al2O3 membrane catalysts were prepared via an evaporative-crystallization deposition method. The obtained Pt/{esc}gc{esc}s- Al2O3 catalyst activity was tested after characterization (SEM-EDAX observation, BET measurement, permeability assessment) in the catalytic oxidation of selected volatile organic compound (VOC) i.e. propane, fed in mixture of oxygen. The VOC conversion (nearly 90%) obtained by varying the operating temperature showed that flow-through membrane reactor might do better in the abatement of VOCs.
