Design and evaluation of gas transport through a zeolite membrane on an alumina support. (2018)
Book Chapter
SHEHU, H., OKON, E., ORAKWE, I. and GOBINA, E. 2018. Design and evaluation of gas transport through a zeolite membrane on an alumina support. In Rashed, M.N. and Palanisamy, P.N. (eds.) Zeolites and their applications. London: IntechOpen [online], chapter 3. Available from: https://doi.org/10.5772/intechopen.75545

This chapter details the synthesis and applications of zeolite membranes (gas separation and zeolite membrane reactors). Gas separation is still not carried out at industrial level for zeolite membranes. Related areas, such as the possibility of inco...
