Center for Inorganic Membrane Studies

The goals of the Center for Inorganic Membrane Studies are to develop industry and university collaboration for inorganic membrane research, and to promote and expand the science of inorganic membranes as a technological base for industrial applications through fundamental research. An interdisciplinary approach has been taken by the center to assemble all of the essential skills in synthesis, modeling, material characterization, diffusion measurements and general properties determinations of inorganic membranes.

Projects include dense and microporous organic membrane synthesis, membrane reactors, Pd and Pd/alloy membranes for hydrogen production and separation, reactive membrane studies, fouling and transport studies, characterization of membrane degradation, applications in biotechnology, and NMR spectroscopic studies. Facilities including SEM, TEM, NMR and ultrafiltration unit are available.
