Technology Marketing SummaryThis invention and the subsequent patent applications describe a method for producing Palladium alloy composite membranes that are useful in applications that involve the need to separate hydrogen from a gas mixture.
DescriptionIn the main invention, a Pd alloy composite membrane is realized in which the Pd alloy film is 1 μm or less in thickness and resistant to poisoning by sulfide compounds. Further, the Pd alloy composite membranes are applied to a number of applications, such a fuel reforming.Benefits
  • Fuel cell application
  • Hydrogenation and Dehydrogenation reactions
  • Hydrocarbon reforming and coal gasification
Applications and Industries
  • Resistant to H2S poisoning
  • Higher hydrogen flux due to thinner membrane than other Pd alloy membranes
  • Cost savings also because of thinner membrane
