Abstract

In this work the design of a nano structured ceramic membrane is carried out for fuel cell applications. However the innovation is that a membrane porous network is modified through its immersion in silica based solution and in a palladium solution to form composite membrane. Subsequently, the development of hybrid ceramic gas separation membrane elaborates on the recovery of hydrogen from fuel reforming unit for use in fuel cell applications. To enhance the efficiency of the fuel cell, clean hydrogen using membranes with a high permeability and selectivity for H2 over N2 and CO2 are a necessity.
