Sulfur-Resistant Palladium or Palladium-Alloy Membranes for Hydrogen Separation
Hydrogen separation membranes are important for the purification of hydrogen for use in the production of chemicals, the refining of petroleum, and in energy conversion devices such as fuel cells. Among the best membranes are palladium membranes, but these are susceptible to poisoning by sulfur. Sulfur is a common contaminant in feedstocks for hydrogen...

Melt Electrospun Fibers Containing Micro and Nanolayers
Solution electro-spinning is a process that is used to produce nanofibers and they have been evaluated for applications in filtration, protective clothing, drug delivery, tissue engineering, sensors and nanocomposites. Solution electro-spinning is not an attractive large-scale manufacturing option from an environmental or safety stand-point. We have...

Method for Making Oriented Single-Walled Carbon Nanotube/Polymer Nano-Composite Membranes
This invention provides a novel method for efficient, facile, and inexpensive fabrication of nanocomposite membranes with oriented single-walled carbon nanotubes. For use as membrane material, carbon nanotubes have shown significant improvement of transport rates. However, for single walled nanotubes to effectively act as a channel in a membrane, the...
