    For the purpose of efficient separation of sulfate ions from magnesium ions, novel negatively-charged nanofiltration membranes were developed by incorporating the monoamines 4-aminobenozic acid, aniline-2,5-disulfonic acid monosodium salt, and iminodiacetic acid (IDA) during interfacial polymerization of piperazine (PIP) and trimesoyl chloride. PIP-amide membranes without these monomers tended to reject magnesium ions as well as sulfate ions. In contrast, incorporation of the monoamines resulted in large molecular weight cut-offs and large negative charge densities thanks to carboxyl or sulfo terminal groups of the monoamines, which enabled preferential permeation of magnesium ions while maintaining high rejection of sulfate ions. In particular, the IDA-incorporated nanofiltration membrane with an IDA to PIP + IDA mass ratio of 0.40 showed high rejection of sulfate ions with low rejection of magnesium ions even when the concentration of sodium chloride was much higher than that of magnesium sulfate. This result indicates the feasibility of the developed membrane for magnesium recovery from desalinated seawater in the electrodialysis process for table salt production.

    We developed a procedure that saves significant amounts of energy during the separation of organic liquids via organic solvent reverse osmosis (OSRO). The proof-of-concept was confirmed using theoretical calculation to demonstrate energy-consumption at less than 1/100th and 1/10th that of conventional distillation and pervaporation (PV), respectively. Bis(triethoxysilyl)acetylene (BTESA)-derived organosilica membranes consisting of a SiO2-ZrO2 intermediate layer and an alpha-Al(2)O(3 )support were evaluated by challenging a series of azeotmpic mixtures of methanol/toluene, methanol/methyl acetate, methanol/dimethyl carbonate (DMC), and methanol/ methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE). BTESA membranes showed excellent size- and/or shape-sieving properties and remarkable levels of organic-tolerance with an ultrahigh methanol flux that outperforms state-of-the-art polymeric membranes. In particular, the robust ceramic support and rigid organosilica networks endowed the resultant membranes with the ability to withstand transmembrane pressures as high as 18 MPa.

    A hollow fiber-type facilitated transport membrane composed of an ionic liquid-based polymer network gel layer with amino acid as the CO2 carrier and a porous polysulfone support membrane was developed. A polymerized ionic liquid-based gel layer with glycinate was the best amino acidate examined in this study. Filtering the gel particles by the support membrane, a gel layer with a thickness of about 1 mu m could be formed on the inner surface of the support. The developed membrane showed promising potential for CO2 capture from air because of its high CO2 permeance of about 1400 GPU and excellent CO2/N-2 selectivity of more than 2000 under atmospheric pressure with CO2 pressure of 0.1 kPa at 30 degrees C. Because the developed membrane showed significant diffusion resistance in the pores of the support membrane, it was suggested that the performance of the composite membrane could be improved by optimizing the support membrane structure.

    Membranes assembled by two-dimensional (2D) nanosheets have high potential for advanced molecular separation. The intercalation of nanomaterials into the laminar membrane is a promising strategy to control the nanochannel structure. We present 2D niobate nanosheet (NbN)-Graphene oxide (GO) composite membranes fabricated by simple vacuum filtration. The effect of the weight ratio of NbN/GO on the membrane structures and performances is investigated. The NbN-rich membranes have a more stable structure in the wet condition and a membrane structure with a larger channel size compared with GO-rich membranes. Especially, NbN55-GO45 (weight ratio of NbN/GO = 55/45) shows a superior water permeability of 20 L m(-2) h(-1) bar(-1), which is around 6 times higher than an NbN membrane (NbN100) and 2 times higher than a GO membrane (GO100), while maintaining good rejection abilities of an anionic dye (nearly 100% for Evans blue) and salt (60% for Na2SO4). Different models for the water pathway through nanochannels can be classified according to the composite ratio of the NbN-GO membranes.

    In this study, a combination of experimental results and molecular dynamics (MD) simulation was employed to understand the mass transfer between the extruded solvent and polymer solution by using a triple-orifice spinneret in the thermally induced phase separation (TIPS) process. Extruding solvent at the outer layer of the extruded polymer solution with different air gap distances controlled the mass transfer before phase separation. The progressive change in the phase separation mechanism, from the liquid-liquid to the solid-liquid induced by mass transfer, played a determined role in tailoring the composite-like structure. The moving of polymer or diluent from the bulk solution to the contact interface changed the polymer surface concentration and subsequently affected the membrane surface pore structure. The MD calculation results elucidated the mass transfer of the solvent and the polymer solution, which drastically affected the membrane structure. The formed spherulite-embedded bicontinuous structure clearly improved the membrane water permeation stability from 52 to 98%. On the other hand, by altering the air gap distances, the membrane water permeation flux enhanced in a wide range from 266 to 1429 L m(-2) h(-1) bar(-1). A new relationship between permeation flux and permeation stability was obtained, which can be utilized as a guideline for the engineering of hollow fiber membranes with high and stable permeability in the TIPS process.

    Organic chelate ligand (OCL)-templated TiO2-ZrO2 nanofiltration membranes were fabricated. Three types of OLCs, isoeugenol (ISOH), 2,3-dihydroxynaphthalene (DHN), and ethyl acetoacetate (EAA) were examined for use in the preparation of a TiO2-ZrO2 thin separation layer. All employed OCLs were completely decomposed and removed with firing at 500 degrees C under air, but OCL-templated TiO2-ZrO2 composite materials maintained their amorphous structure after firing. ISOH- and DHN-templated TiO2-ZrO2 composite powder samples were more microporous with a higher BET specific surface area than ordinary pure TiO2-ZrO2 composite material without OCL. On the other hand, EAA-templated TiO2-ZrO2 had a less-microporous structure similar to that of non-templated TiO2-ZrO2 powder. The average pore sizes of ISOH-, DHN-, and EAA-templated membranes were 2.0, 2.0, and 1.4 nm, respectively, while that of a non-templated TiO2-ZrO2 membrane was 1.4 nm. ISOH and DHN were more effective as an OCL for changing the characteristics of ordinary TiO2-ZrO2 composite materials. The molecular weight cut-off (MWCO) of OCL-templated TiO2-ZrO2 membranes was 600-1000 g/mol, and water permeability was 3.7-11.41/(m(2) h bar) (LMH/bar). OCLs could be useful for improvements in the water permeability of porous ceramic membranes that retain their solute rejection or separation characteristics.

    Membrane fouling caused by oil or other pollutants is one of the major challenges for membrane separation technology used for emulsified oil/water purification. Aiming at the realization of comprehensive fouling-resistant/fouling-release properties, and the further achievement of long-term cyclic separation, an ultrathin silica (SiO2) layer is conformally engineered onto a porous polyketone (PK) substrate via the electrostatic attraction force silicification process. This in situ silicification forms an ultrathin and superhydrophilic/underwater superoleophobic interface structure that allows the realization of ultrahigh water permeance up to 7533 L m(-1) h(-1) bar(-1), an exceptionally high emulsion flux up to 6000 L m(-1) h(-1) bar(-1) (close to pure water permeance), and a high rejection of >99.9% against various oily emulsions. The unique design of the superhydrophilic silicification layer grown on the hydrophilic PK substrate also endowed the membrane with comprehensive antifouling properties against a broad range of oily emulsions containing various pollutants such as proteins, surfactants, and other natural organic materials (NOM), from which a nearly 100% recovery ratio of permeation flux could be obtained after several cycles of oily emulsion filtration. The use of an inorganic SiO2 modified layer incorporated into a highly chemically inert PK substrate (SiO2-d-PK membrane) also enabled the application of the SiO2-d-PK membrane under more challenging conditions, where its great tolerance and long-term stability toward salty and strongly acidic/alkaline solutions and various organic solvents were further demonstrated. Overall, this study provides an insight into engineering an ultrathin membrane with ultralow fouling-propensity for treating challenging oily emulsions.

    We developed a new hydrophilization method that we refer to as polyvinylalcohol (PVA) diffusion. This new method modifies the entire surface area of a hollow fiber membrane by diffusing PVA from the bore fluid to the outer surface. This method was used to prepare hydrophilized polyvinylidene difluoride (PVDF) hollow fiber membranes (PVA-PVDF). A hydrophilized polysulfone (PSf) hollow fiber membrane (PVA-PSf) was also prepared for reference. Interfacial polymerization was performed on the outer surface of the hollow fiber substrates during the preparation of polyamide (PA) thin-film composite membranes. This study examined the hydrophilicity effect that these modified support layers exert on the performance of membranes during reverse osmosis (RO) and forward osmosis (FO). Compared with PSf membranes, PVDF membranes had a higher physical strength of over 10 MPa, which was credited to production using a thermally induced phase separation (TIPS) process compared to the non-solvent induced phase separation (NIPS) process that is used to produce PSf membranes. The TIPS process could be useful for developing mass production techniques such as roll-to-roll processing. Comparisons of the RO test performance of hydrophilized PVDF membranes (PA-PVA-PVDF, PA-PVDF) showed that the 1000 ppm of NaCl rejection of hydrophilized support membrane was higher than that of nonmodified support membranes. The FO performances were similar regardless of whether or not the support membranes were hydrophilized when measured under wet conditions. In measurements under dry conditions, however, the performance was significantly lowered in the PA-PVDF membrane that was not hydrophilized. Hydrophilization via PVA diffusion effectively produced equivalent FO membrane performances under either wet conditions or dry conditions.

    Microporous silica membranes have silica polymer network voids smaller than 3 angstrom where only small gas molecules such as helium (2.6 angstrom) and hydrogen (2.89 angstrom) can be transported. These silica membranes are highly expected to be available for H-2 separation. In order to examine gas permeation mechanisms in the silica polymer network voids, factors such as membrane porous structures, gas diffusivity, and gas permeability were studied via membrane permeation molecular dynamics simulation. The thermal motions of silica membrane constituent atoms were examined according to classic harmonic oscillation potential using a suitable amorphous silica structure and non-equilibrium molecular dynamics (NEMD) simulations of gas permeation. The dynamic model successfully simulated the gas permeation characteristics in an amorphous silica membrane with a suitable Hooke's potential parameter. The introduction of the oscillative thermal motion of the membrane atoms enhanced gas diffusivity. Helium and hydrogen diffusivity and permeability were analyzed using gas translation (GT) and solid vibration (SV) models. The diffusion distance of gas molecules between adsorption sites was around 5.5-7 angstrom. The solid-type vibration frequencies of gas molecules in the site were on the order of 10(13) and were reasonably smaller for heavier helium than for hydrogen. Both the GT and SV models could explain the temperature dependency of helium and hydrogen gas diffusivities, but the SV model provided a more realistic geometrical representation of the silica membrane. The SV model also successfully explained gas permeability in an actual silica membrane as well as the virtual amorphous silica membrane.

    Liquid-phase permeation was simulated in nano-scale pores via non-equilibrium molecular dynamics (NEMD). Two virtual cristobalite membranes were prepared with pore diameters of 1.7 and 2.4 nm. NEMD simulation system was employed as an ideal experimental system to calculate the affinity between liquid argon molecules and membrane materials during permeation. When argon-membrane interactions decreased, permeation flux increased. With a smaller interaction the permeation flux exceeded the value posited by the Hagen-Poiseuille theorem, while a lower-than-expected level of permeation flux was observed when the interactions with the pore surface became greater. We focused on the viscosity change of liquid in a nano-scale pore due to attractive or repulsive interactions with the pore surface, and a mathematical model for describing the liquid permeation flux in a nanopore was proposed by solving the Navier-Stokes equation by considering the viscosity distribution of a liquid confined in a pore. The local viscosity of a liquid confined in a pore was calculated from the total potential distribution in the pore based on the Andrade equation. The predicted level of permeation flux, the velocity profiles of different pore sizes, and the interactions of the pore models all showed good agreement with the NEMD simulation results.

    Molecular simulation was adopted to investigate and compare the water-channel performance of a common Amphotericin B_Ergosterol (AmBEr) model with that of two hydrophobically modified Amphotericin B_Ergosterol (C3deOAmBEr) models. Structural characteristics and transport performances were also examined. The energy levels of the simulation models were explored to determine the stability of each channel. The hydrogen bonds between the Amphotericin B monomers and the water molecules within each channel illustrated the affinity of the channel water. Molecular dynamics (MD) and Monte Carlo (MC) methods were adopted to investigate the diffusion and sorption behaviors of the water molecule transport performance, respectively. Furthermore, the effect of modification was studied to reveal the features of the modified channel simulation model. In the case of the modified C3deOAmBEr model, the results indicated that modification led to hydrophobic properties in the channel. Although modification reduced the attractive forces and led to lower adsorbability within the channel, the special structure of the Amphotericin B monomer showed interesting results. In the case of the modified model, the hydrophilic entrance of the channel contributed to the attraction of water molecules, which facilitated a high level of water permeability. The MD and MC simulation methods enabled an illustration of the properties and performance on a microscopic level.

    Fouling problems caused by oil and other pollutants is one of the most severe challenges for membranes used for purification of comprehensive oil-in-water emulsions. Poly(tetrafluoride-r-vinylpyrrolidone) (F-VP) with low-adhesive superoleophobicity is a class of novel material for fouling-repellent membrane modification to achieve highly-efficient separation of complex oily wastewater. In this work, the construction of an ultrathin F-VP layer with a controllable thickness of 2 mu m supported by polyvinylidene difluoride (PVDF) substrate was achieved, via an extremely simple, scalable and one-step surface modification process. Benefiting from the ultrathin modification F-VP layer, the resultant F-VP/PVDF membrane exhibited a superior comprehensive fouling-resistant and fouling releasing property, while maintaining a high mass-transfer efficiency without significant permeance sacrificing. The intrinsically non-fouling nature of F-VP modification layer endowed the F-VP/PVDF membrane with superoleophobic property to various oils, superhydrophilic/under oil superhydrophilic properties, and excellent antifouling property for comprehensive oil-in-water emulsions. The F-VP/PVDF membrane has high water permeance of 4612 L m(-1) h(-1) bar(-1), and high emulsion permeance of 461 L m(-1) h(-1) bar(-1) (10000 ppm soybean oil-in-water emulsion) with high rejection ratio of > 99.9%, and an outstanding, stable fouling-resistant and fouling-releasing property of similar to 93% flux recovery over 5-time continuous cyclic tests. Overall, this work provides an insight into a facile preparation of advanced composite membrane with ultralow fouling-propensity property, which shows great potential in treating practically challenging emulsified wastewater.

    Niobate nanosheet membranes were fabricated by vacuum filtration using niobate nanosheets prepared by the hydrothermal method (HT-NbO membranes) and the exfoliation method (EX-NbO membranes). Membrane structure, water permeance and separation performance for these membrane types were measured and compared. Both membrane types had a dense structure and retained high structural stability in water via chemical cross-linking between sheets. The difference of the intercalated molecules and interaction between nanosheets affected the interlayer distance of the membranes. As a result, higher water permeance but lower rejection of polyethylene glycol, Na2SO4 and Acid Red 265 was observed for EX-NbO membranes than for HT-NbO membranes. This is due to the formation of larger nanochannels in EX-NbO membranes. A model of a water pathway through nanochannels based on void structure proposed for the HT-NbO membranes can also be applied for EX-NbO membranes.

    Biofouling is a major drawback for most polyamide reverse osmosis (RO) membranes, which results in water flux decline and higher energy demand. To prevent biofouling, it is important to minimize the interaction between bacterial and membrane surfaces. In this research, we investigated the influence of surface modification with various hydrophilic polymers on biofouling behavior. First, polyamide RO membranes were modified with well-structural controlled hydrophilic polymers, poly(2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate) (pHEMA), poly[poly(ethylene glycol)methacrylate] (pPEG), and poly[(2-methacryloyloxy)ethyl]dimethyl[3-sulfopropyl]ammonium hydroxide (pMEDSAH) via the surface-initiated atomic transfer radical polymerization (SI-ATRP). The biofouling properties were assessed by a static bacterial adhesion and a dynamic biofouling filtration. The membranes modified with a longer main chain of pMEDSAH and a long side chain of pPEG had good resistance against both the bacterial adhesion and dynamic biofouling. Experimental results between the static and dynamic biofouling behavior did not correlate with each other. Molecular dynamics (MD) simulation clarified that pPEG had a longer side chain than pHEMA and pMEDSAH, and that pMEDSAH possessed stronger hydration than pPEG and pHEMA. Experimental results and MD simulation indicated that the main chain length, side chain length, and hydration of the modifying polymer should be taken into account for developing anti-biofouling membranes.

    Mixed-matrix membranes (MMMs) have been drawing increasing attention due to the high permeability and high rejection capabilities for highly efficient wastewater treatment applications. Nonetheless, improving the water permeance while maintaining the high rejection capability is still an ongoing challenge for the practically state-of-the-art MMMs. Herein, a new class of poly(ether sulfone) (PES) based MMM containing metal-organic framework (MOF) nanofillers of HKUST-1 and blending with poly(methyl methacrylate-co-methacrylic acid) (PMMA-co-MAA) copolymer, designated as HKUST-1@mPES MMM, were developed for the highly efficient ultrafiltration (UF) process. In this study, the nanosized HKUST-1 nanofillers were removed by water dissolution as sacrificial templating materials, so that the additional nanovoids were deliberately generated throughout the dense polymer matrix. The introduction of PMMA-co-MAA copolymer facilitated the even dispersion of HKUST-1 nanofillers in a polymer matrix, by constructing the bridge connection between inorganic nanofillers and organic matrix. The resultant HKUST-1@mPES MMM exhibited a high pure water permeability (PWP) up to 490 L-m(-2).h(-1).bar(-1), substantially reaching nearly 3 times higher than that of the mPES membrane without HKUST-1 nanofillers loading and maintaining a relatively high BSA rejection rate of 96% without obvious deterioration. The newly developed HKUST-1@mPES MMM thereby exhibited a comparable separation efficiency compared to the cutting-edge UF membranes reported so far. Overall, the nanovoid-generated approach provides new insight into developing advanced MMMs used for highly efficient water treatment applications.

    Pressure retarded osmosis (PRO) process is hindered by severe fouling occurring within the porous support of the forward osmosis (FO) membranes. We designed a novel double-skinned FO membrane containing a polyamide salt rejecting layer and a zwitterionic brush-decorated, multiwalled carbon nanotube (MWCNT/PSBMA) foulant-resisting layer on the back side. Our results demonstrated that the coating of the MWCNT/PSBMA layer on the porous polyketone (PK) support imparted enhanced hydrophilicity and smaller membrane pore size, thereby providing excellent resistance toward both protein adhesion and bacterial adsorption. We also further evaluated this resultant double-skinned membrane (i.e., TFC-MWCNT/PSBMA) in dynamic PRO fouling experiments using protein and alginate as model organic foulants. Compared to the pristine TFC-PK and hydrophobic TFC-MWCNT membranes, the TFC-MWCNT/PSBMA membrane exhibited not only the lowest water flux decline but also the highest water flux recovery after simple physical flushing. These results shed light on fabrication of antifouling PRO membranes for water purification purposes.

    Solution concentration processes such as evaporation, freeze concentration, and reverse osmosis are commonly used in food processing and environmental applications. However, these processes are frequently examined to lower energy costs and improve concentration ratios. This study performed concentration tests and theoretical calculations for osmotically assisted reverse osmosis (OARO) using a pilot-scale hollow-fiber membrane module. In the concentration test using NaCl solution, water flux and concentration ratio were measured with changing flow rate, concentration, and applied pressure. Water permeation and solution concentration were achieved, even using concentrated salt solutions (0.5 and 1.0 M), with applied pressure of 8-12 bar, which was lower than the osmotic pressure (25 bar for 0.5 M NaCl; 50 bar for 1.0 M NaCl). The calculation results were in good agreement with the experimental results, and the validity of the calculation model was confirmed. Analysis revealed that the concentration gradient and concentration polarization in the module changed with operating conditions, and these factors affected the water flux and the concentration ratio.

    Oil-fouling resistance of membranes is crucial for enabling efficient oil/water separation. Starting with an aliphatic polyketone (PK) polymer with intrinsic intermediate hydrophilicity and good membrane formation ability, a robust PK composite membrane with the ideal abrasion-resistant and chemical-resistant super-anti-oil-fouling property was effortlessly prepared by a simple one-step non-solvent induced phase separation (NIPS) process, with the polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) additive introduced as a pore-former and more importantly a hydrophilicity enhancer to perfect the underwater oil-repellency and a nylon mesh as a reinforcing support. Molecular dynamics (MD) simulations revealed that the intermolecular and intramolecular hydrogen bonds are responsible for the stable confinement of PVA within the PK matrix, leading to the all hydrophilic PK-PVA mixed surface chemistry. Fouling-resistant membrane filtration of oil-in-water emulsions was readily achieved in the cross-flow mode with a high flux up to 420 L m(-2) h(-1) at 0.1 bar and a high flux recovery of 93-96% being maintained, even for the highly adhesive and highly fouling soybean oil emulsions (up to 100000 ppm). The prepared membrane with excellent comprehensive performance and high cost-effectiveness is very promising in sustainable treatment of difficult oil-in-water emulsions.

    Polyamide (PA) membranes possess properties that allow for selective water permeation and salt rejection, and these are widely used for reverse osmotic (RO) desalination of sea water to produce drinking water. In order to design high-performance RO membranes with high levels of water permeability and salt rejection, an understanding of microscopic PA membrane structures is indispensable, and this includes water transport and ion rejection mechanisms on a molecular scale. In this study, two types of virtual PA membranes with different structures and densities were constructed on a computer, and water molecular transport properties through PA membranes were examined on a molecular level via direct reverse/forward osmosis (RO/FO) filtration molecular dynamics (MD) simulations. A quasi-non-equilibrium MD simulation technique that uses applied (RO mode) or osmotic (FO mode) pressure differences of several MPa was conducted to estimate water permeability through PA membranes. A simple NVT (Number, Volume, and Temperature constant ensemble)-RO MD simulation method was presented and verified. The simulations of RO and FO water permeability for a dense PA membrane model without a support layer agreed with the experimental value in the RO mode. This PA membrane completely rejected Na+ and Cl- ions during a simulation time of several nano-seconds. The naturally dense PA structure showed excellent ion rejection. The effect that the void size of PA structure exerted on water permeability was also examined.

    Two-dimensional (2D) nanosheets show promise for the development of water treatment membranes with extraordinary separation properties and the advantages of atomic thickness with micrometer-sized lateral dimensions. Stacked graphene oxide (GO)-based membranes can demonstrate unique molecular sieving properties with fast water permeation. However, improvements to the structural stability of the membranes in water to avoid problems such as swelling, disruption of the ordered GO layer and decreased rejection are crucial issues. This study reports the fabrication of stacked GO nanosheet membranes by simple vacuum filtration using triethanolamine (TEOA) as a crosslinker and mild reducing agent for improved structural stability and membrane performance. Results show that GO membranes modified with TEOA (GO-TEOA membranes) have a higher structural stability in water than unmodified GO membranes, resulting in improved salt rejection performance. Furthermore, GO-TEOA membranes show stable water permeance at applied pressures up to 9 bar with Na2SO4 rejection of 85%, suggesting the potential benefits for water treatment applications.

    The hydrothermal pretreatment of rice straw generates a liquid fraction that contains low concentrations of sugars, as well as fermentation inhibitors which are not favourable for efficient bioethanol production. For the development of a forward osmosis (FO) process to concentrate sugars and remove fermentation inhibitors, we fabricated polyamide-polysulfone (PA-PSf) membranes treated with NaClO solution. The NaClO treatment improved the water permeability (A value) and the permselectivity of fermentation inhibitors against sugars. Maximum separation of xylose from furfural and acetic acid was achieved when the treated membranes had A values of 5.5-7 L m(-2) h(-1) bar(-1). Using an optimized membrane with A value of approximately 6 L m(-2) h(-1) bar(-1), a liquid fraction from hydrothermally pretreated rice straw was concentrated in a one-step FO process to increase sugar concentrations and decrease fermentation inhibitor concentrations. The ethanol concentration and yield (ethanol/total sugar) by xylose-utilizing Saccharomyces cerevisiae reached 18.0 g/L and 0.40, respectively, which were much higher than those obtained with commercial FO membranes. These results clearly indicate the possibility of introducing a simple and low-cost FO process into bioethanol production from lignocellulosic biomass by incorporating NaClO treatment to FO membrane.

    Adsorption of bovine serum albumin (BSA) on poly(vinylidene fluoride) (PVDF) surfaces in an aqueous environment was investigated in the presence and absence of excess ions using molecular dynamics simulations. The adsorption process involved diffusion of protein to the surface and dehydration of surface-protein interactions, followed by adsorption and denaturation. Although adsorption of BSA on PVDF surface was observed in the absence of excess ions, denaturation of BSA was not observed during the simulation (1 mu s). Basic and acidic amino acids of BSA were found to be directly interacting with PVDF surface. Simulation in a 0.1 M NaCI solution showed delayed adsorption of BSA on PVDF surfaces in the presence of excess ions, with BSA not observed in close proximity to PVDF surface within 700 ns. Adsorption of Cl- on PVDF surface increased its negative charge, which repelled negatively charged BSA, thereby delaying the adsorption process. These results will be helpful for understanding membrane fouling phenomena in polymeric membranes, and fundamental advancements in these areas will lead to a new generation of materials with improved antifouling membrane properties and reduced energy demands.

    In this study, molecular simulation was used to explore the structural characteristics and water transport performance of Amphotericin B-Brgosterol (AmBEr) channels. A molecular dynamics (MD) technique was used to construct two types of molecular models of AmBEr channels: single-layer channel (SLC) and double-layer channel (DLC). A MD simulation was used to illustrate the differences between SLC and DLC AmBEr models with respect to structure, channel diameter, interior affinity, and transportation behavior of water molecules. A Monte Carlo (MC) method was adopted to investigate the sorption behavior in these two types of AmBEr channels. The intramolecular properties and intermolecular interactions indicated the feasibility of the simple model construction method adopted in this study. The internal diameter and channel shape showed that the use of funnel-type AmBEr channels would lead to high levels of permeability and selectivity. The special tunnel shape was reflected in the diffusion calculation that resulted in a high displacement of water molecules in two types of channel models. The water molecule-channel hydrogen bond distribution and snapshot analyses of the adsorption site revealed an affinity between the amphotericin B monomer and water molecules. The novel chemical structure of the amphotericin B monomer features simultaneous hydrophilic and hydrophobic segments. This particular structural characteristic was reflected in the unique shape of the water adsorption isotherm curves, which show a unique three-step increase in equilibrated water pressure. In transport prediction, two AmBEr models had similar permeability values but different water transport mechanisms. Concisely, fabrication of the artificial water channel would help to enhance the water permeability in the water transport process. The results from the simulation provided valuable information for structural characterization and in estimating the transport behavior of the molecules in the AmBEr channels.

    In this study, the transport performance of water molecules and the ion-rejection ability of cyclic peptide nanotubes (CPNTs) were examined on a molecular level via a simulation of forward osmosis (FO) filtration phenomena. A FO filtration model and three types of CPNTs, 8CP, Mba-8CP, and 4Mba-8CP (with different levels of modification by hydrophobic functional groups), were constructed via molecular dynamics (MD). MD simulation was adopted to explain the diversity transport mechanism between different types of CPNTs, and to analyze how hydrophobic modified functional groups affect the FO filtration process. The hydration structures of cations and anions were validated via radial distribution function (RDF) and hydration analysis. The interaction energy of van der Waals (vdW) and coulombic energies at the interface between water molecules and the first cyclic peptide cage suggested that hydrophobic modified functional groups reduced the interior affinity between water molecules and nanotubes, which made it difficult for water molecules to enter a nanotube. During FO filtration calculation, the alteration in the number of water molecules in each region of saltwater, pure water and membrane was traced and recorded. The osmotic pressure was considered as the driving force for concentration driven FO process which was calculated via the Van't Hoff equation in this work. By combining the above results, water permeabilities of the three types of CPNTs could be directly calculated and compared. The results of the water permeabilities agreed well with the interaction energy analysis. Finally, the hydration structure of cations within a nanotube was used to directly study the ion rejection mechanism of CPNTs. Three types of CPNTs showed high selectively between water molecules and ions. The partial charge distribution of a cyclic peptide cage illustrated how cations are trapped within nanotubes. A microscopic view of this information was informative in the analysis of nanotube properties and in the application of CPNTs to the filtration process.

    In this study, molecular simulation was used to explore the structural characteristics and transport performances of cyclic peptide nanotubes (CPNTs). A molecular dynamics (MD) technique was used to construct four different molecular models of nanotubes: an octamer prototypical cyclic peptide (8CP); and, three cyclic peptides modified by replacing one or two L-Lysine or L-Leucine groups with an aromatic amino acid, 3-amino-2-methylbenzoic acid (gamma-Mba-OH). MD simulation was used to explain how the hydrophobic modification of functional group affects the structure, channel volume, interior affinity, and transportation behavior of water in CPNTs. The Monte Carlo (MC) method was adopted to investigate the sorption behaviors in these four types of CPNTs. The internal diameter, channel morphology, and volume analyses indicated that modified functional groups disrupted the symmetry of cyclic peptides and changed the structural characteristics of the nanotubes. The hydrogen bond distribution and interaction energy analyses suggested that the modified gamma-Mba-OH functional groups reduced the interior affinity between water molecules and nanotubes, which led to hydrophobic properties. The adsorption analysis revealed that a greater number of modified functional groups in CPNTs resulted in a lower affinity for water molecules, which lowered the adsorption amount in low-pressure regions. The modified gamma-Mba-OH functional groups lowered the attractive forces and enlarged the channel volume, which was reflected in the diffusion calculation that showed improvements in water diffusivity in most cases. The results of the structure and water transport properties of CPNTs, as shown by the MD technic and MC methods, provided useful information that would have been difficult to obtain in an actual experiment. The simulation techniques can assist in the analysis of nanotube structural properties and in the transport behavior of the molecules in CPNTs.

    A poly(methacryloylamino propyl trimethylammonium chloride)/poly(dimethylacrylamide) (PMAPTAC/ PDMAAm) double-network (DN) ion-gel membrane containing triethyl(2-methoxymethyl)phosphonium indazole ([P-222(101)][Inda]) was fabricated via a casting method, displaying excellent mechanical strength and high CO2 separation performance. Changes in the cross-linker loading of the PMAPTAC network were found to significantly impact the CO2 separation performance of the ion-gel membrane. For instance, as the cross-linker loading was decreased from 4 to 0.5 mol.%, the CO2 permeability and CO2/N-2 selectivity increased from 2254 to 7569 Barrer and from 130 to 210, respectively. The network structure and mechanical properties of the fabricated ion gels was also strongly dependent on the cross-linker loading of the PMAPTAC network, with excellent strength obtained at decreased loadings. The CO2 transport properties of the DN ion-gel membranes were substantially improved by increasing the [P-222(101)][Inda] content, which was mainly attributed to two cooperative factors: (1) carrier content increase, resulting in a large driving force for the diffusion of the CO2-complex and (2) decrease of the polymer network content, resulting in lower diffusion resistance. The proportional enhancement of CO2 permeance with reducing ion-gel membrane thickness implied that diffusion is the rate-determining step of CO2 permeation.

    Microporous silica membranes with high permselectivity are fabricated by atmospheric-pressure plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition (AP-PECVD) using hexamethyldisiloxane as the precursor in plasma working gases of pure argon, and mixture of argon with oxygen or nitrogen. A silica membrane grown using plasma composed of a mixture of argon and nitrogen displays highly efficient gas separation, with selectivities for He/N-2 and He/SF6 of 196 and 820, respectively, and He permeance of 1.1x10(-7) mol m(-2) S-1 Pa-1 at 50 degrees C. Characterization of the membranes by FTIR and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopies reveals a relatively high concentration of carbon remains in the membrane grown using a mixture of argon and nitrogen. Annealing at elevated temperature after plasma deposition improves the permselectivity of the membranes. After annealing at 300 degrees C, the permeance of He at 50 degrees C increased to 4.0x10(-7) mol m(-2) s(-1) Pa-1 with no marked decrease of selectivity (He/N-2 =98, He/SF6 =770). The annealed membrane also exhibits remarkable permselectivity for CO2, showing selectivities for CO2/N-2 and CO2/CH4 of 46 and 166, respectively, with CO2 permeance of 1.9 x10(-7) mol m(-2) s(-1) Pa-1 at 50 degrees C. AP-PECVD shows great promise to fabricate microporous silica membranes highly permselective for gas separation.

    Global warming is occurring because of emission of greenhouse gases due to human activities. Capture of CO2 from fossil-fuel industries and absorption of CO2 for natural gas sweetening are crucial industrial tasks to address the threat from greenhouse gases. Amino acid ionic liquids (AAILs) are used for reversible CO2 capture. In this study, the effect of CO2 chemisorption on tetramethylammonium glycinate ([N-1111][GLY]), tetrabutylammonium glycinate ([N-4444] [GLY]), and 1,1,1-trimethylhydrazinium glycinate ([aN(111)][GLY]) were analyzed using density functional theory (DFT) and molecular dynamics (MD) studies. Density functional theory studies predicted different reaction pathways for CO2 absorption on [GLY] and [aN(111)](+). The activation energy barriers for CO2 absorption on [GLY](-) and [aN(111)](+) are 52.43 and 64.40 kJ/mol, respectively. The MD results were useful for mimicking the reaction mechanism for CO2 absorption on AAILs and its effect on physical properties such as the fractional free volume, diffusion coefficient, and hydrogen bonding. Dry and wet conditions were compared to identify factors contributing to CO2 solubility and selectivity at room temperature and elevated temperature. Hydrogen bonding between ion pairs was used to understand the increase in viscosity after CO2 absorption. The MD studies revealed that glycinate and related products after CO2 absorption contribute the most to the increase in viscosity.

    Organosilica microporous membranes were fabricated from 1, 2-bis (triethoxysilyl) ethane (BTESE)-derived sols prepared in acidic pH via the pH-swing method. This method includes two steps whereby a specific amount of NH3 was added into the acid sols and switched to acid after a reaction of several minutes. We found that the size of the BTESE-derived sols by pH-swing could be controlled via the H2O/BTESE molar ratio and the reaction time in alkali. Under the same H2O/BTESE ratio of 60, the BTESE-derived sols prepared in the pH-swing method showed an increase sol size in contrast with the acid method, and the sol size was easily controlled by the dominating reaction in alkali pH - the condensation reaction. Gas permeation results showed that some gases (He, H-2, N-2, C3H8, SF6) permeated the membrane that was prepared using the pH-swing sols (pH-swing membrane) at approximately twice the rate shown by the membrane prepared using acid sols (acid membrane); H-2 permeance levels of the pH swing membrane and the acid membrane were 3.4 x 10(-6) and 1.6 x 10(-6) mol m(-2) s(-1) Pa-1 at 200 degrees C, respectively. The pH-swing membrane also maintained similar H-2/C3H8 permeance ratios of ranging from 2600 similar to 5800, confirming that pH-swing processing is an innovative method for improvement in the gas permeance of BTESE-derived organosilica membranes. One possible reason for these results could be that the membranes prepared using the pH-swing sols increased the size of the sols, which reduced the sol penetration into the intermediate layer. Moreover, the high cross-linking that was caused by pH swing increased the thermostability of the BTESE-derived organosilica networks. The CO2/CH4 and CO2/N-2 permeance ratios for the pH-swing membrane were as high as 90 and 28, respectively, at 50 degrees C. (C) 2016 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

    Metal-doped organosilica membranes for C3H6/C3H8 separation were fabricated via a sol-gel method. Al and Ag was selected as a doping material in the fabrication of metal-doped bis (triethoxysilyl) methane (BTESM) membranes, and the effects that doping materials exerted on the organosilica network size and on the C3H6/C3H8 permeation properties were evaluated. Gas permeance ratios such as H-2/CH4, H-2/C3H6, H-2/C3H8, and C3H6/C3H8 were approximately independent of Ag concentration, indicating that network size did not change when doped Ag existed as Ag ions in BTESM networks, as suggested by the X-ray absorption fine structure (XAFS) spectrum. On the other hand, when Al was doped into BTESM, each permeance decreased as Al concentration increased, and the selectivity (H-2/N-2, H-2/CH4) increased largely because of enhanced molecular sieving separation by densified networks. Ag-BTESM membranes showed negative values for activation energy (similar to-10 kJ mol(-1)) for C3H6 permeation, which were a much smaller values than those for BTESM (similar to-7 kJ mol(-1)) and Al-BTESM (similar to-3 kJ moll) membranes. BTESM, Al-, and Ag-BTESM membranes showed values for alpha(mix) (binary separation) that were higher than those for ash, (single permeation) at 50 degrees C. For example, Ag-BTESM (Si/Ag = 9/1) membrane showed higher C3H6/C3H8 selectivity (= 32.5) by binary separation than selectivity (similar to 19) by single permeation at 50 degrees C, but the selectivity by binary separation was approximately the same, irrespective of a different pressure ratio (feed pressure/permeate pressure).

    The fluorine doping of a silica matrix was proposed in the design of enlarged and uniform networks for highly permeable CO2/CH4 separation membranes. Fluorine doping effectively created a tunable network size, and the order of pore sizes increased with increases in the F concentration: F-SiO2 (F/Si = 2/8) > F-SiO2 (F/Si = 1/9) > SiO2. F-SiO2 (F/Si = 1/9) membranes showed high CO2 permeance (4.1 x 10(-7) mol m(-2) s(-1) Pa-1) with high CO2/CH4 selectivity (approximate to 300) at 35 degrees C, due to the enlarged and uniform networks compared with those of SiO2. Fluorine doping was effective in preventing the formation of a 2nd Si-O in the 4-membered ring (MR) of the SiO4 tetrahedra. F-SiO2 samples with smaller fractions of 4MR and a smaller ring in silica, contain large fractions of larger rings (> 5MR), resulting in enlarged network structure and an increase in the average pore size, which translates to a higher permeance for larger molecules.

    Amorphous carbon membranes were successfully synthesized onto a SiO2-ZrO2/alpha-Al2O3 nanoporous substrate via plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PECVD) at room temperature. PECVD-derived amorphous carbon membranes exhibited molecular sieving properties, showing ideal selectivities of 23 and 1750 for He/N-2 and He/SF6, respectively, at 25 degrees C. The membrane maintained high selectivity even at high temperatures as high as 200 degrees C, indicating considerable stability of the plasma-deposited amorphous carbon layer.

    Bis(triethocysilyl)ethane (BTESE)-derived organosilica membranes were applied for the dehydration of aqueous isopropanol (IPA) solutions in pervaporation and vapor permeation. The stability of the membranes under high-water-content systems was demonstrated in pervaporation and vapor permeation. The membranes showed excellent stability in the long-term pervaporation of a 50 wt% IPA aqueous solution at 75 degrees C. The membranes were also stable in vapor permeation with a high-water-content stream (IPA concentration of 50 wt%) at 100 degrees C. These results clearly demonstrated that BTESE-derived organosilica membranes are applicable for the dehydration of high-water-content mixtures. The effect of the feed component and operating temperature on dehydration performance was also investigated. An analysis of the permeation resistance through the membranes was conducted based on a simple seriesresistance modeling approach and revealed that the permeation resistance of the support layer strongly inhibited the water permeability, particularly when the water content in the feed was high.

    Organosilica membranes were fabricated under controlled sol-preparation conditions such as the ratio of triethoxysilane (TRIES) and vinyltrimethoxysilane (VTMS) and the hydrosilylation temperature. The single-gas permeation properties and hydrothermal stability of organosilica membranes were evaluated to clarify the relationship between hydrothermal stability and organosilica structure. Pt-catalyzed and thermally cured hydrosilylation was applied to evaluate the effect that hydrosilylation temperature exerts on the properties of membranes. Organosilica membranes (Pt-catalyzed hydrosilylation at 40 degrees C) showed H-2 permeance of approximately 10(-6) mol m(-2) s(-1) Pa-1 with H-2 selectivity (H-2/CH4:15, H-2/CF4:950) at 500 degrees C, and were stable under an oxidative atmosphere at 500 degrees C. The organosilica network size derived by thermal curing at 500 degrees C was smaller than that by Pt-catalyzed hydrosilylation, even though the units (Si-C-C-Si, Si-O-Si) were the same. Hydrosilylation reactivity derived by thermal curing (500 degrees C, N-2) strongly depended on the TRIES/VTMS (=H/V) ratio in the SQ sol, and an H/V ratio of 1.25 showed a higher level of hydrosilylation reactivity. Its hydrothermal stability was better than that of amorphous silica membranes, due to the incorporation of Si-(CH2)(2)-Si units in the networks via hydrosilylation, based on the decreased ratio of He and H-2 permeance, the He/H-2 permeance ratio, and the activation energy before/after steam treatment.

    Organosilica membranes for gas separation were prepared by plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PECVD) using three different types of silicon precursors: hexamethyldisiloxane (HMDSO), trimethylmethoxysilane (TMMOS), and methyltrimethoxysilane (MTMOS). Based on gas permeation measurement, the MTMOS-derived membrane showed the highest He/N-2 selectivity, followed by the TMMOS-derived and HMDSO-derived membranes. FT-IR characterization indicated that the HMDSO-derived membrane had the highest content of methyl group and the lowest Si-O-Si, while the methyl group content for the MTMOS-derived membrane was the lowest and Si-O-Si was the highest. These results suggest that the pore size of organosilica membranes could be tuned by changing the chemical structure of the silicon precursor. The MTMOS-derived membrane was further heat treated to determine the effect of thermal annealing on gas-permeation properties. The gas permeances were drastically improved by the thermal annealing. After heat treatment at 500 degrees C, the membrane showed a high H-2 permeance of 6.5 x 10(-7) mol/(m(2) s Pa) with a H-2/SF6 selectivity of 410 at 200 degrees C, arid 5.6 x 10(-7) mol/(m(2) s Pa) with a H-2/SF6 selectivity of 360 at 50 degrees C.

    A modified gas-translation (GT) model based on a GT mechanism was successfully applied to the pore-size evaluation and gas transport behavior analysis of microporous membranes with different pore-size distributions. Based on the gas permeation results of three microporous membranes derived from different alkoxides, the effects of activation energy and the selection of a standard gas on the pore-size evaluation were discussed in a comparative study. The presence of nano-sized defects had an important influence on the gas permeation performance of microporous membranes, depending largely on the original pore size of the membrane in question. Moreover, the gas-separation effect of the pore-size distribution in a silica membrane was theoretically studied and revealed a significant increase in gas permeance for relatively large gas species but not for small ones.

    The dehydrogenation of methylcyclohexane (MCH) to toluene (TOL) for hydrogen production was theoretically and experimentally investigated in a bimodal catalytic membrane reactor (CMR), that combined Pt/Al2O3 catalysts with a hydrogen-selective organosilica membrane prepared via sol-gel processing using bis(triethoxysilyl) ethane (BTESE). Effects of operating conditions on the membrane reactor performance were systematically investigated, and the experimental results were in good agreement with those calculated by a simulation model with a fitted catalyst loading. With H-2 extraction from the reaction stream to the permeate stream, MCH conversion at 250 degrees C was significantly increased beyond the equilibrium conversion of 0.44-0.86. Because of the high H-2 selectivity and permeance of BTESE-derived membranes, a H-2 flow with purity higher than 99.8% was obtained in the permeate stream, and the H-2 recovery ratio reached 0.99 in a pressurized reactor. A system that combined the CMR with a fixed-bed prereactor was proposed for MCH dehydrogenation. (c) 2015 American Institute of Chemical Engineers AIChE J, 61: 1628-1638, 2015

    A new concept was proposed to control the pore size in a novel silica membrane. The tuning of the pore sizes in triethoxysilane (TRIES)-derived membranes was successfully conducted via an in situ reaction between NH3 and Si-H groups at high temperatures. The formation of Si-NH2 and/or Si-NH groups in the silica structure enhanced the hydrogen selectivity.

    In this study a new type of layered hybrid membrane was fabricated. This new membrane consisted of a thin organically bridged silica separation layer deposited onto the surface of a flexible polymeric membrane, NTR-7450 (Nitto Denko, japan), and was comprised of a sullonated polyethersulfone top layer and a porous polysulfone support. Using 1,2-bis(triethoxysilyl)ethane (BTESE) as a precursor, a continuous and defect-free BTESE separation layer was deposited onto the surface of a polymeric nanofiltration membrane via a facile, reproducible and scalable sol-gel spin-coating and low-temperature curing process. First, the optimal preparation conditions were established, which included the curing temperature and the spin-coating cycles. The membranes were then used for the vapor permeation dehydration of isopropanol-water solutions, and showed a stable water flux 01 2,3 kg/(m(2) h) and an improved separation factor of about 2500, which was an increase of approximately 5-fold compared with that of a polymeric nanofiltration membrane. ln addition, single-gas permeance through this membrane was also discussed and a modest H-2/N-2 selectivity of 26 was obtained, which approximated the performance of ceramic-supported BTESE-derived silica membranes.

    A modified gas-translation (GT) model was applied for the theoretical analysis of gas permeation through microporous organosilica membranes derived from bis(triethoxysilyl)ethane (BTESE) via a sol-gel method using different water/alkoxide molar ratios. The pore sizes of BTESE-derived membranes were quantitatively determined by normalized Knudsen-based permeance analysis, which was based on a modified-GT model, using experimentally obtained permeances of He, H-2, N-2, C3H8, and SF6. The pore sizes of BTESE-derived membranes were successfully controlled from 0.65 to 0.46 nm by increasing the H2O/BTESE ratio from 6 to 240. Furthermore, theoretical correlations of all possible pairs of permeance ratios were calculated based on the modified-GT model. The experimental data were in good agreement with the theoretical correlation curves, indicating that the modified-GT model can clearly explain gas permeation mechanisms through microporous membranes, and, thus, can be used to predict the gas permeation properties for these membranes.

    The sal-gel method was applied to the fabrication of Al-doped bis (triethoxysilyl) methane (BTESM)derived membranes. The single-gas permeation properties for Al-doped BTESM-derived membranes were examined to evaluate the effect of aluminum concentration on amorphous silica network sizes. Each permeance was decreased with an increase in the Al concentration, and the H-2/CH4 and H-2/C3H8 permeance ratios increased with an increase in Al concentration. For example, an Al-doped BTESM (Si/Al= 8/2) membrane fabricated at 200 degrees C showed a H-2 permeance of 4.4 x 10(-7) mol m(-2) s(-1) Pa-1, which was approximately 1/10th that of a BTESM membrane fabricated at 200 degrees C. The H-2/CH4 and H-2/C3H8 permeance ratios were 60 and 2700 with Al doping, but 30 and 1000 without Al-doping, respectively. The activation energy of He, H-2, N-2, and CH4 permeation was increased with an increase in the Al concentration, indicating that the pore size of BTESM-derived networks was decreased with an increase in Al concentration. The decrease in BTESM-derived network sizes that resulted from an increase in the Al concentration can be ascribed to the absolute amount of Al incorporated into BTESM-derived networks and/or coordinated with Si-OH groups, as suggested by Al-27 MAS NMR. High C3H6/C3H8 permeance ratios of approximately 40 for Al-doped BTESM (Si/Al=9/1) membranes fabricated at 200 degrees C were achieved through the precise control of the silica network size via a spacer method using Si-C-Si units as well as the incorporation of Al in BTESM-derived networks.

    The sol-gel method was applied to fabrication of amorphous silica membranes, which have different silica network sizes caused by control of the calcination temperatures. The effects of fabrication temperature on small gas (He, H-2, Ne, NH3, CO2, N-2, and CH4) permeation properties through silica membranes were evaluated quantitatively using modified gas translation (GT) model. A silica membrane fired at 550 degrees C showed He and H-2 permeances of 8.6 X 10(-7) and 5.5 X 10(-7) mol m(-2) s(-1) Pa-1 with He/CH4 and H-2/CH4 permeance ratios of 2350 and 1500 at 500 degrees C, respectively. The thermal stability was dramatically improved by the fabrication of deposited silica glass intermediate layer because N-2 permeance showed slight change, and the membrane showed a H-2/N-2 permeance ratio above 100 even heat-treated at 750 degrees C. The estimated silica network size decreased from 0.385 to 0.347 nm when a membrane was fabricated at 750 degrees C, which was consistent with the trend in activation energy of gas permeation. H-2 molecules were more permeable than Ne when passing through amorphous silica membranes despite their larger molecular size (H-2, 0.289 nm; Ne, 0.275 nm), and the H-2/Ne permeance ratios were approximately the same as the Knudsen ratio and were independent of the activation energy of Ne permeation, which was almost the same as that of H-2 permeation.

    Using 1,2-bis(triethoxysilyl)ethane (BTESE) as a single precursor, a uniform, defect-free and perm-selective organosilica layer was successfully deposited onto porous polysulfone ultrafiltration (PSF-UF) supports via a simple sol-gel spin-coating and thermal-treatment process. The layered hybrid membranes, where BTESE-derived SiO2 is deposited on polymer supports, were applied to the vapor permeation dehydration of isopropanol-water (90/10 wt%) solutions at 105 degrees C, and demonstrated a water flux of 1.6 kg/m(2) h and a separation factor of 315 with no selectivity for a PSF-UF support. Long-term stability testing of vapor permeation also confirmed the excellent stability of these BTESE/PSF-UF layered hybrid membranes. Moreover, compared with porous PSF-UF supports, this layered hybrid membrane also showed improved gas separation performance and a moderate (approximate to 10) separation factor for H-2/N-2.

    Sol-gel derived microporous amorphous TiO2-ZrO2-organic composite membranes were prepared by two different types of chelating ligands, cliethanolamine (DEA) and isoeugenol (2-merhoxy-4-propenyl-phenol, ISOH)) as reaction inhibitors for hydrolysis and condensation of Ti- and Zr-alkoxide. The structural properties of the composite gels were characterized via a thermogravimetric study (TG), X-ray diffraction (XRD), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR), and N-2 adsorption analysis; and the optimized calcination atmosphere and temperature conditions for a microporous membrane were examined. A crack free thin (50 nm) TiO2-ZrO2-organic layer for gas separation was formed on a SiO2-ZrO2 intermediate layer (150 nm) supported on a macroporous alpha-Al2O3 substrate as an asymmetric membrane. Compared with DEA, more of the ISOH and its remnants effectively remained after calcination, which promoted higher permeance and selectivity as a rnicroporous gas separation membrane by forming bimodal microporous structures that narrowed the original TiO2-ZrO2 pores. A TiO2-ZrO2 membrane with [SOH calcined at 350 degrees C under a N-2 atmosphere showed He and CO2 permeances of 1.0 x 10(-6) and 2.0 x 10(-7) mol m(-2) s(-1) Pa-1, respectively, at 200 C. The CO2/N-2 permeance ratio was 64 at 200 degrees C and 46 at 35 degrees C. (c) 2014 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

    Microporous organosilica membranes with ethane, ethylene, and acetylene bridges have been developed and the extensive microstructural characterization has been discussed in relation with separation properties of the membrane. The organosilica network structure and the membrane performances can be controlled by adjusting the flexibility, size, and electronic structure of the bridging groups. A relatively narrow size distribution was obtained for the novel acetylene-bridged sol by optimizing the sol synthesis. Incorporation of larger rigid bridges into organosilica networks resulted in a looser microstructure of the membrane, which was quantitatively evaluated by N-2 sorption and positron annihilation lifetime (PAL) measurements. Molecular weight cutoff (MWCO) measurements indicated that the acetylene-bridged membrane had a larger effective separation pore size than ethane- and ethylene-bridged membranes, leading to a relatively low NaCl rejection in reverse osmosis. In quantum chemical calculations, a more open pore structure and increased polarization was observed for the acetylene-bridged networks, which led to a significant improvement in water permeability. The present study will offer new insight into design of high-performance molecular separation membranes.

    High-performance organic-inorganic hybrid silica membranes were developed for use in membrane reactors for methylcyclohexane (MCH) dehydrogenation to toluene (TOL). The membranes were prepared via sol-gel processing using bis(triethoxysilyl)ethane (BTESE). In particular, the effect of hydrolysis conditions (H2O/BTESE molar ratio) on membrane performance was extensively investigated. Characterization based on TO-MASS, FTIR, N-2 adsorption and positron annihilation lifetime (PAL) measurements of BTESE-derived silica gels revealed that the ethoxides of BTESE were almost completely hydrolyzed and the silica networks became dense by increasing the H2O/BTESE molar ratio from 6 to 240. BTESE-derived silica membranes showed a hydrogen permeance that was higher than 1 x 10 mol/ (m(2) s Pa). H-2/TOL selectivity increased from 100 to 10,000 by increasing the H20/BTESE molar ratio from 6 to 240, while keeping a hydrogen permeance of more than 1 x 10(-6) mol/(m(2)s Pa).In MCH dehydrogenation, a BTESE-derived silica membrane reactor with a Pt/gamma-Al2O3/alpha-Al2O3 bimodal catalytic layer achieved MCH conversion of 75% that was higher than the equilibrium conversion of 60%, and a hydrogen purity in the permeate stream of more than 99.9% at 230 degrees C. 2014 Elsevier B.V.

    Hybrid organosilica membranes have become attractive for industrial applications because of high performance and long-term stability. This work investigated the influence of water vapor on CO2 gas permeation through the hybrid membranes. Two types of organoalkoxysilanes, bis(triethoxysilyl)ethane (BTESE) and bis(triethoxysilyl)octane (BTESO), were used as precursors to prepare membranes via the sol-gel method. The two membranes showed distinct properties of porosity and water affinity because of the differences in the bridging methylene numbers between the two Si atoms. Under dry conditions, the BTESE and BTESO membranes showed CO2 permeances as high as 7.66 x 10(-7) and 6.63 x 10(-7) mol m(-2) S-1 Pa-(1) with CO2/N-2 selectivities of 36.1 and 12.6 at 40 degrees C, respectively. In the presence of water vapor, CO2 permeance was decreased for both membranes, but the effect of water vapor on CO2 permeation was slighter for BTESO membranes than it was for BTESE membranes because of more hydrophobicity and denser structures with a longer linking-bridge group. The hybrid organosilica membranes both showed good reproducibility and stability in water vapor.

    The highest CO2 solubility and commercially-available ionic liquid, 1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium acetate ([emim][Ac]), was immobilized in porous Al2O3/TiO2 tubes in order to study the potential of using supported ionic liquid membranes based on ceramic supports for CO2/N-2 separation. The supported ionic liquid membranes (SILMs) were first prepared using a conventional immobilization procedure based on ionic liquid impregnation, and then, by coating the TiO2 mesoporous outer layer, reducing the membrane resistance to gas permeation.The permeation of these membranes to carbon dioxide and nitrogen was measured, yielding a CO2 permeance as high as P-CO2 = 2.78 +/- 0.11 x 10(-8) mol/(m(2) s Pa), with an ideal CO2/N-2 selectivity of alpha(CO2/N-2) = 30.72 +/- 0.86 for membranes prepared under the coating procedure, which outperformed the state of the art for CO2/N-2 separation in polymeric materials. The membrane stability tests demonstrated that the hydrophilic ceramic support was very effective for the immobilization of the liquid phase in the membrane for a period of 25 h and at applied feed pressures of 4 bar. Finally, the effect of water vapor in the gas stream and the effect of operation temperature on membrane separation performance were evaluated and compared.The high CO2 permeance values and comparable selectivity to polymeric materials may suggest the potential application of using Al2O3/TiO2 tubes in combination with [emim][Ac] ionic liquid for the selective removal/recovery of CO2 from a gas stream in industrial applications.

    Thermally stable organosilica amorphous membranes were fabricated by in situ hydrosilylation of vinyl and hydrosilyl groups in Si precursors for the formation of a Si-C-C-Si unit, as well as the Si-O-Si unit via the conventional hydrolysis and condensation of silanol groups. Two types of SiOC membranes (VTT-type prepared by vinyltrimethoxysilane (VTMS), triethoxysilane (TRIES) and tetramethyldisiloxane (TMDSO); and VT-type prepared by VTMS and TRIES) that consisted of a Si-C-C-Si unit created by the hydrosilylation of vinyl and hydrosilyl groups in a Si precursor were fabricated at temperatures higher than 300 degrees C under N-2. Single-gas permeation properties for SiOC membranes at temperatures ranging from 100-500 degrees C were examined to determine the effect of a silica precursor on the size of an amorphous network. A SiOC membrane (VTT-type) fabricated at 400 degrees C under N-2 showed a H-2 permeance of 5.3 x 10(-7) mol m(-2) s(-1) Pa-1 with H-2/CO2, H-2/N-2, H-2/CH4 and H-2/CF4 permeance ratios of 5.6, 15, 18 and 485, respectively, at 400 degrees C. The permeance of H-2 for a VTT-type membrane heat-treated at 550 degrees C in air significantly increased from 5.3 x 10(-7) to 2 x 10(-6) mol m(-2) s(-1) Pa-1 with a decrease in the H-2/CF4 permeance ratio from 485 to 90 due to the combustion of the CH3 groups. The SiOC membrane (VTtype) showed high thermal stability in air at 550 degrees C with a H-2 permeance of 3.0 x 10(-7) mol m(-2) s(-1) Pa-1 and H-2/CH4 and H-2/CF4 permeance ratios of 50 and 400, respectively, at 400 degrees C.

    Organosilica membranes for gas separation were prepared on porous substrates by means of plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PECVD) using hexamethyldisiloxane as a precursor. Before the deposition of organosilica membranes, two types of intermediate layers with different pore sizes, a TiO2 layer (d(p) approximate to 5 nm) and a SiO2-ZrO2 layer (1 nm), were prepared on alpha-alumina porous supports via a sol-gel method. The stability at high temperatures was evaluated by measuring the gas permeation characteristics before and after heat treatment. PECVD membranes deposited on a SiO2-ZrO2 intermediate layer were found to be more thermally stable than those deposited on a TiO2 intermediate layer. After the treatment at 500 degrees C, the membranes deposited on a SiO2-ZrO2 intermediate layer had a selectivity of similar to 1040 for He against SF6 with a He permeance of 1.41 x 10(-6) mol/(m(2) s Pa) at 50 degrees C, although the organosilica membranes were prepared at room temperature. On the other hand, the membrane deposited on a TiO2 intermediate layer became non-selective after heat treatment at 400 degrees C. The temperature dependence of single gas permeance for the membrane deposited on a SiO2-ZrO2 intermediate layer was measured after the high-temperature stability test. The permeation of He, H-2 and N-2 for the 200 degrees C-treated membrane showed an activated diffusion, while those for the 500 degrees C-treated membrane followed a Knudsen permeation, suggesting that heat treatment at 500 degrees C formed pores that allowed the permeation of molecules that were the size of N-2 (0.364 nm) and smaller. In addition, since the permeation of SF6 for the 500 degrees C-treated membrane showed an activated diffusion, the membrane should have a uniformed structure with a small number of pinholes.

    2,4,6-Tris[3(triethoxysilyl)-1-propoxy]-1,3,5-triazine (TTESPT) is a new precursor for preparing membranes. The TTESPT-derived silica membrane exhibits a significant degree of selectivity for C3H6-C3H8 similar to 37 at a permeation temperature of 50 degrees C, which greatly surpasses the upper-bounds of selectivity and permeance trade-off of carbon membranes. This indicates the potential for further development toward C3H6-C3H8 separation applications.

    To date, Ru is the most active single-metal catalyst known for ammonia decomposition, but its catalytic activity is support-dependent and structure-sensitive. Therefore, a unique support-anchored Ru nanoparticle with controllable size and morphology would be particularly important for high catalytic performance. In this work, we describe Ru nanoparticles supported by two-dimensional graphene nanosheets with a controlled nanoarchitecture that forms a novel composite catalyst that is capable of a high degree of ammonia decomposition. This high-quality Ru/graphene nanocomposite material was obtained via a cosolvent method (CS-Ru/graphene), in which ethylene glycol simultaneously acted as a solvent and a reductant, while water served only as a cosolvent. The abundant oxygen-containing functional groups of graphene oxide played extremely important roles in the growth of Ru nanoparticles on the resultant graphene nanosheets, as they promoted Ru nucleation and acted as anchor sites for the Ru nanoparticles. Moreover, the use of water as a cosolvent was an effective way to tune the Ru particle size and morphology and aid in the loading of the nanocomposite, resulting in dramatically enhanced catalytic activity in comparison with a composite prepared by using ethylene glycol as a single solvent (SS-Ru/graphene). The exceptional catalytic performance of CS-Ru/graphene was mainly ascribed to the novel graphene support that simultaneously combines a large specific surface area with excellent electronic conductivity, but also to the highly dispersive Ru nanoparticles that made up the nanocomposite with a controlled morphology and an optimal size.

    A promising new triazine-based nitrogen-rich organosilica (TTESPT) membrane has been developed for molecular separation processes in gas (gas separation) and liquid phases (reverse osmosis (RO)). By adjusting the H2O/TTESPT molar ratio, we found a promising technique for tuning the pore network of TTESPT membranes. An increase in the H2O/TTESPT molar ratio from 60 to 240 fully hydrolyzed all the ethoxide groups in the TTESPT membrane, which reduced the size of the pores in the silica pore network. A TTESPT membrane with a high H2O/TTESPT molar ratio exhibited a high degree of selectivity for H-2/SF6 (greater than 4000) at a permeation temperature of 200 degrees C. This membrane also demonstrated high sodium chloride (NaCl) rejection (>98.5%) with water permeability of >1 x 10(12) m(3) m(-2) s(-1) Pa-1 under operating conditions of 1 MPa and 60 degrees C during a RO experiment. As the operating temperature was increased from 25 to 60 degrees C, the NaCl rejection was constant without displaying the characteristic flux deterioration. This showed that the membrane retained a stable hybrid network structure.

    A spray-assisted, 2-step interfacial polymerization (IP) of trimesoyl chloride (TMC)/m-phenylenediamine (MPD) was proposed for the preparation of polyamide (PA) membranes. In the first step, TMC/hexane solutions were sprayed onto MPD-impregnated polysulfone (PSI) supports for 10-60 s, followed by a second step where the first-step membranes made contact with the TMC/hexane solutions. It is noteworthy that water permeability was increased with spray time in the first step of the 2-step IP, showing approximately doubled values at the spray time of 20-30s, compared with 1-step PA/PSf composite membranes, while NaCl rejections were practically unchanged. With longer spray time (3060 s), water permeability decreased while NaCl rejection remained at the same level. A characterization of 1- and 2-step PA membranes, including FE-SEM and ATR-FTIR, revealed the formation of multilayered ridge-and-valley structures of polyamide from the spray-assisted IP steps, and it is suggested that the increased water permeability have been caused by the increased interfacial surface area of the 2-step PA membranes.

    A high-performance organosilica membrane was prepared via sol-gel processing for use in methylcyclohexane (MCH) dehydrogenation to produce high-purity hydrogen. The membrane showed a high H-2 permeance of 1.29 x 10(-6) mol m(-2) s(-1) Pa-1, with extremely high H-2/C3H8 and H-2/SF6 selectivities of 6680 and 48,900, respectively, at 200 degrees C. The extraction of hydrogen from the membrane reactor led to the MCH conversion higher than the thermodynamic equilibrium, with almost pure hydrogen obtained in the permeate stream without considering the effect of carrier gas and sweep gas in the membrane reactor, and the organosilica membrane reactor was very stable under the reaction conditions employed.

    Using 1,2-bis(triethoxysilyl)ethane (BTESE) as the precursor and 1-propanol as the solvent, a uniform and defect-free hybrid organosilica thin coating was successfully deposited onto polysulfone (PSF) film via a sol-gel process using spin coating. The structural characterization, morphology and surface wettability of the BTESE-derived silica coating on PSF film were investigated. Results showed that the outermost layer of the composite film consisted of nanoscale hybrid organosilica networks that were approximately 200 nm in thickness with a low surface roughness. In addition, the measured water contact angle of the composite film decreased from 78.8 degrees to 45.5 degrees, which showed that the surface wettability of the BTESE-coated PSF composite film was also improved.

    The sol-gel method was applied to the fabrication of amorphous silica membranes for use in hydrogen separation at high temperatures. The effects of fabrication temperature on the hydrogen permeation properties and the hydrothermal stability of amorphous silica membranes were evaluated. A thin continuous silica separation layer (thickness=<300nm) was successfully formed on the top of a deposited colloidal silica layer in a porous glass support. After heat treatment at 800 degrees C for an amorphous silica membrane fabricated at 550 degrees C, however, it was quite difficult to distinguish the active separation layer from the deposited colloidal silica layer in a porous glass support, due to the adhesion of colloidal silica caused by sintering at high temperatures. The amorphous silica membranes fabricated at 700 degrees C were relatively stable under steam atmosphere (500 degrees C, steam=70kPa), and showed steady He and H2 permeance values of 4.0x10-7 and 1.0x 10-7molm-2s-1Pa-1 with H2/CH4 and H2/H2O permeance ratios of similar to 110 and 22, respectively. The permeance ratios of H2/H2O for membranes fired at 700 degrees C increased drastically over the range of He/H2 permeance ratios by factors of similar to 3-4, and showed a value of similar to 30, which was higher than those fired at 500 degrees C. Less permeation of water vapor through amorphous silica membranes fabricated at high temperatures can be ascribed to the dense amorphous silica structure caused by the condensation reaction of silanol groups.

    The dehydrogenation of methylcyclohexane (MCH) in catalytic membrane reactors for hydrogen production was studied experimentally and theoretically. The membrane reactor was composed of a Pt/gamma-Al2O3/alpha-Al2O3 catalytic support and a H-2-selective silica separation layer, showing H-2 permeances of (1.51-2.83) x 10(-6) mol m(-2) s(-1) Pa-1 with H-2/SF6 permeance ratios of 290-1000 at 473 K. The MCH conversion was markedly increased after hydrogen extraction from the membrane reactor, which agreed very well with the results obtained by simulation using a proposed mathematical model. The effects of the catalytic activity and hydrogen extraction rate on membrane reactor performance were investigated during the simulations. A system combining a fixed-bed prereactor and a membrane reactor was proposed for MCH dehydrogenation, which further improved the MCH conversion as a result of the enhanced driving force for hydrogen extraction from the membrane reactor.

    Plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PECVD) was applied to the fabrication of hexamethyldisiloxane (HMDSO) derived amorphous silica membranes. Three different PECVD procedures, namely, Ar-PECVD, O-2-PECVD, and a 2-step PECVD sequence involving Ar-PECVD followed by O-2-PECVD, were employed to determine the effect of carrier gas on membrane structure and gas permeation property. The membrane prepared by Ar-PECVD showed moderate molecular sieving properties at room temperature (permeance ratio of 15 for He/N-2 and 220 for He/SF6), but was easily decomposed at high temperatures. For the case of the O-2-PECVD membrane, the permeance of small molecules such as He and H-2 increased with increasing temperature, while the permeance of large molecules such as N-2 and SF6 was consistent with Knudsen diffusion, and thus the selectivity of He/N-2 increased up to 81 at 500 degrees C. Compared with Ar- and O-2-PECVD, 2-step PECVD membrane showed a excellent molecular sieving properties. Since the 2-step membrane was treated by O-2-PECVD in the second step of the sequence, a good thermal stability was confirmed at temperatures as high as 400 degrees C. The 2-step PECVD membrane showed high He and H-2 permeances of 5.2 x 10(-7) and 2.4 x 10(-7) mol/(m(2) s Pa), respectively, with He/N-2 and H-2/N-2 permeance ratios of 4200 and 1900 at 400 degrees C, respectively. The results suggested that the 2-step PECVD is applicable to the low-temperature fabrication of thermally stable molecular sieving amorphous silica membranes. (C) 2013 Elsevier B.V..

    Organic-inorganic hybrid silica membranes were prepared from 1, 2 bis (triethoxysilyl)ethane (BTESE) by sol-gel processing at temperatures as low as 100 degrees C, followed by solid-phase HCl-assisted post-treatment to tune the silica network by reducing the pore size. The Brunauer-Emmett-Teller (BET) surface area, thermogravimetric (TG) and positron annihilation lifetime (PAL) showed reduced pore sizes and a densified network structure of BTESE powder after the HCl-assisted treatment. The HCl-assisted treatment increased the permeance ratios of both He-to-N-2 and He-to-C3H8, while the permeance of He was decreased. During the pervaporation (PV) dehydration of a 90 wt% (wt%) isopropanol (IPA) aqueous solution at 75 degrees C, a BTESE membrane fired at 100 degrees C with HCl treatment showed a stable PV water flux of 2.46 kg m(-2) h(-1) and a separation factor of 3960 for more than 80 h, confirming the successful preparation of BTESE membranes at low firing temperatures. The BTESE-derived silica networks were successfully and easily controlled by this novel HCl-assisted post-treatment. (c) 2013 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

    The sol-gel method was used to fabricate Pd-SiO2 membranes in which Pd particles 2-30 nm in size were dispersed in a SiO2 layer, and the thickness of the Pd-SiO2 layer was approximately 300 nm. The H-2 permeation properties and the thermal and hydrothermal stabilities of the Pd-SiO2 membranes were evaluated. In the present study, the Pd-SiO2 layer was fabricated by (1) a 1-step method, whereby calcination occurred only at 550 degrees C under a H-2 atmosphere for 1 h, and/or (2) via a 2-step method, whereby a first calcination was administered at 400 degrees C under a H-2 atmosphere for 1 h prior to a second calcination at 550 degrees C under a H-2 atmosphere for 1 h. The Pd-SiO2 membranes were quite stable under a N-2 atmosphere at 500 degrees C, irrespective of the membrane fabrication method (1-step, 2-step calcination). However, under a H-2 atmosphere, the N-2 permeance of a membrane fabricated using the 1-step method increased approximately 10 times after exposure to H-2 for the initial 3 h, and increased with time due to the formation of grain boundaries caused by the aggregation of Pd particles. A Pd-SiO2 membrane fabricated using the 2-step method was relatively stable under a H-2 and steam atmosphere (500 degrees C, steam: 70 kPa), and showed H-2 permeance of 5.0 x 10(-7) mol m(-2) s(-1) Pa-1 with H-2/N-2 and H-2/He permeance ratios of 260 and 2.2, respectively. The experimentally obtained H-2/He permeance ratio for Pd-SiO2 membranes (Si/Pd = 3/1, 317, 218, 119) showed reasonable agreement with a theoretical calculation based on a mixed-matrix structure (continuous phase: SiO2, dispersed phase: Pd).

    The methyl-modified hybrid silica sols with methyltriethoxysilane and tetraethoxysilane were successfully prepared using alkaline (NH3 and tetra-methyl-ammonium hydroxide (TMAH)) and acid catalysts (HCl and CH3COOH) and characterized with thermogravimetric analysis, Fourier transform infra-red, and water contact angle. The methyl-modified silica film showed hydrophobic property with water contact angles over 90 degrees under alkaline or acid catalyst. The methyl-modified silica membranes were fabricated and evaluated with He, H-2, N-2, C3H8, and SF6 at 200 degrees C. He gas permeance for hybrid silica membranes was in the range of 0.61-1.91x10(-6)molm(-2)s(-1)Pa(-1), while He/SF6 and N-2/SF6 permeance ratios of acid-catalyzed membranes was quite higher than those of alkaline catalyzed. Pore size (d(p)) of membranes were evaluated with normalized Knudsen-based permeance method, and the order of pore size for methyl-modified silica membranes can be estimated as follows: HCl-catalyzed membraneTAYLOR & FRANCIS INC, 2013年07月, DESALINATION AND WATER TREATMENT, 51 (25-27), 5149 - 5154, 英語

    The virtual structures of organic-inorganic hybrid silica membranes were prepared on a computer by introducing two different types of organic functional groups into a conventional silica network. bis(triethoxysilyl)ethane (BTESE) and bis(triethoxysilyl)ethylene (BTESEthy) derived silica-based organic-inorganic hybrid microporous materials were modeled and their structures such as pore size distribution and radial distribution function were studied. Adsorbability of water and diffusivity of helium molecule was also examined. Both the hybrid silica structures showed larger pore size than pure silica. The difference in water adsorption performance and helium diffusivity was observed between two types of hybrid silica structures. BTESEthy silica showed higher loading of adsorbed water and it is expected to be a promising material for water treatment. Helium diffusivity in BTESEthy silica was greater than that in BTESE silica, which was in consistent with the micropore size.

    Amorphous carbon (a-C) membranes with 1,728 particles were prepared from diamond at four different densities (1.8, 2.0, 2.28, and 2.4g/cm(3)) using molecular dynamics simulation. Stillinger and Weber potential for carbon was introduced with kinetic energy abided by classical Newton equation. Time mesh was chosen 0.01 or 1fs. The melt-quenching technology method was adopted with the corresponding cooling rate 5 and 0.05K/fs, respectively. Different membranes were obtained from higher initial temperature (7,500, 7,000, or 6,500K at different densities and cooling rates) to room temperature. We compared the radial distribution function, bond angle distribution, and pore size distribution with experimental data. The results agreed well and one membrane at lower density with larger pores was chosen to calculate the gas permeation further. Gas molecules (He, Ne, H-2, CO2, N-2, CH4, and SF6) permeation through the a-C membrane at low density (1.8g/cm(3)) when time mesh equal to 1fs were calculated at 300, 400, 473, 500, and 600K. The results of every gas species almost illustrated Knudsen diffusion well. And the number of permeated particles depended on the molecular weight.

    Bis(triethoxysilyl)ethylene (BTESEthy) was used as a novel precursor to develop a microporous organosilica membrane via the sol gel technique. Water sorption measurements confirmed that ethenylene-bridged BTESEthy networks had a higher affinity for water than that of ethane-bridged organosihca materials. High permeance of CO2 with high CO2/N-2 selectivity was explained relative to the strong CO2 adsorption on the network with pi-bond electrons. The introduction of polarizable and rigid ethenylene bridges in the network structure led to improved water permeability and high NaCl rejection (>98.5%) in reverse osmosis (RO). Moreover, the aqueous ozone modification promoted significant improvement in the water permeability of the membrane. After 60 mm of ozone exposure, the water permeability reached 1.1 X 10(-12) m(3)/(m(2) s Pa), which is close to that of a commercial seawater RO membrane. Meanwhile, molecular weight cutoff measurements indicated a gradual increase in the effective pore size with ozone modification, which may present new options for fine-tuning of membrane pore sizes.

    The effect of the gas molecular size and its affinity to the pore surface on gas permeation properties through the ceramic membranes was studied by both the gas permeation experiments and gas permeation simulations using a nonequilibrium molecular dynamics (MD) technique. A modified gas permeation model equation based on the gas translation (GT) mechanism was presented. MD simulation revealed that the effective diffusion length in a micropore depended on the gas molecular size, and the pre-exponential coefficient of a modified GT model equation showed good correlation with the kinetic diameter of the gas molecules. Also presented is a simple method to estimate the mean pore size of microporous membranes. The estimated pore sizes were consistent with observed kinetic diameter dependencies of gas permeance for real silica membranes. The pore size of a Deca-Dodecasil 3R (DDR) zeolite membrane was also reasonably estimated at approximate to 0.4 nm from the reported gas permeation data.

    Hybrid organosilica membranes were successfully prepared using bis(triethoxysilyl)ethane (BTESE) and applied to reverse osmosis (RO) desalination. The organosilica membrane calcined at 300 degrees C almost completely rejected salts and neutral solutes with low-molecular-weight. Increasing the operating pressure led to an increase in water flux and salt rejection, while the flux and rejection decreased as salt concentration increased. The water permeation mechanism differed from the viscous flow mechanism. Observed activation energies for permeation were larger for membranes with a smaller pore size, and were considerably larger than the activation energy for water viscosity. The organosilica membranes exhibited exceptional hydrothermal stability in temperature cycles up to 90 degrees C. The applicability of the generalized solution-diffusion (SD) model to RO and pervaporation (PV) desalination processes were examined, and the quantitative differences in water permeance were accurately predicted by the application of generalized transport equations.

    Catalytic decomposition of NH3 with H-2-selective microporous silica membranes for COx-free hydrogen production was studied theoretically and experimentally. The simulation study shows that NH3 conversion, H-2 yield and H-2 purity increase with the Damkohler number (Da), and their improvement is affected by the effect of H-2 extraction as well as NH3 and N-2 permeation through the membranes. The experimental study of NH3 decomposition was carried out in a bimodal catalytic membrane reactor (BCMR), consisting of a bimodal catalytic support and a H-2-selective silica layer. Catalytic membranes showed H-2 permeances of 6.2-9.8 x 10(-7) mol m(-2) s(-1) Pa-1, with H-2/NH3 and H-2/N-2 permeance ratios of 110-200 and 200-700, respectively, at 773 K. The effect of operating conditions on membrane reactor performance with respect to NH3 conversion, H-2 yield and H-2 purity was investigated, and the results were in agreement with those calculated by the proposed simulation model.

    Molecular dynamics simulation was used to investigate the permeation properties of a virtual condensable vapor through micropores. A permeation model was proposed to simulate the movement of condensable vapor through a micropore. The model is called "micropore filling phase permeation (MFP),"and the effect of feed gas pressure, pore size and pore size distributions on the vapor permeation properties was examined through model calculations. The observed permeance of ethane-like LJ particles at 260 K, a temperature below the critical temperature of real ethane, decreased stepwise at a specific pressure as the mean pressure was increased for micropores sized 0.8 and 1.1 nm in diameter. Analysis of the adsorption isotherm in the pores and vapor permeation simulations revealed the formation of a high-density liquid-like phase in micropores as the MFP caused a decrease in the mobility of permeating molecules. The model calculations based on the MFP showed qualitative agreement with the simulation results.

    Organosilica membranes were prepared from bis(triethoxysilyl)ethane (BTESE) by sol-gel processing and applied to the dehydration of aqueous acetic acid (AcOH) solutions in pervaporation. BTESE-derived membranes were found to show high permselectivity with excellent stability. The permeate flux for aqueous AcOH solutions (AcOH: 90 wt%, 75 degrees C) was 2.0-4.0 kg/(m(2) h) with water selectivity of 200-500, corresponding to water permeance of (2.5-5) x 10(-6) mol/(m(2) s Pa). Long-term stability tests in aqueous AcOH solutions revealed that BTESE membranes showed approximately unchanged flux and separation factors, confirming the excellent stability of organosilica membranes. Comparison with gas permeation properties suggests the separation mechanism is dominated by the molecular sieving effect. Concentration dependency was examined for AcOH concentrations ranging from 30 to 90 mol%. An increase in AcOH concentration decreased both water and AcOH permeance, suggesting that adsorbed AcOH on BTESE membranes reduced the effective pore sizes for permeation of the 2 molecules.

    Bis(triethoxysilyl) methane (BTESM), which consists of Si-C-Si bonds, was used as a membrane precursor in the control of amorphous silica network size for separation of C3H6 and C3H8 molecules. Single and binary-component gas permeation/separation characteristics were examined at temperatures ranging from 50 to 200 degrees C for BTESM-derived silica membranes fabricated at various temperatures. Normalized Knudsen-based Permeance (NKP) was applied to evaluate the effect of calcination temperatures on amorphous silica network size. Pore size distribution, as determined by single gas permeation as well as by NKP plotting, suggested that average pore size was successfully tuned by changing the calcination temperatures. BTESM-derived silica membranes showed C3H6 permeance (0.28-6.3 x 10(-7) mol m(-2) s(-1) Pa-1) and a C3H6/C3H8 permeance ratio (6.9-33) at 50 degrees C. For binary-component gas separation at 50 degrees C, preferentially adsorbed C3H6 molecules could efficiently block the permeation of C3H8 molecules, resulting in C3H6/C3H8 permeance ratios that were higher than those obtained by single-gas permeation. The ratios of alpha (separation)/alpha (ideal) for BTESM-derived membranes fired at 200 degrees C were higher than those for membranes fired at 350 degrees C, due to the higher density of silanol groups, that can interact with the pi-bond (C=C double bond) of C3H6 molecules.

    Organic-inorganic hybrid membranes from 1,2-bis (triethoxysilyl)ethane (BTESE) were prepared by sol-gel processing, and we examined the effects of firing temperatures ranging from 100 to 300 degrees C on membrane separation performance. The contact angle, thermogravimetric (TG) and infrared (IR) spectrum showed that the structure of the membrane changed with top-layer firing temperatures. BTESE-100, prepared by firing at 100 degrees C, showed an He permeance of 2.2 x 10(-7) mol/(m(2) s Pa) with a He/SF6 separation factor of about 140, while BTESE-300, prepared by firing at 300 degrees C, showed a He/SF6 of about 3000 with an He permeance of 1.5 x 10(-6) mol/(m(2) s Pa). In pervaporation (PV) dehydration of a 90 wt% isopropanol (IPA) aqueous solution at 75 degrees C, BTESE-100 and BTESE-300 showed water fluxes of 2.51 and 3.40 kg/(m(2) h) with separation factors of 130 and 4370, respectively. Moreover, BTESE-100 showed a stable PV flux and separation factor for more than 10 h, confirming the successful preparation of BTESE membranes at low firing temperatures. (c) 2012 Elsevier B.V.

    A novel bimodal catalytic membrane reactor (BCMR) consisting of a Ru/gamma-Al2O3/alpha-Al2O3 bimodal catalytic support and a silica separation layer was proposed. The catalytic activity of the support was successfully improved due to enhanced Ru dispersion by the increased specific surface area for the gamma-Al2O3/alpha-Al2O3 bimodal structure. The silica separation layer was prepared via a sol-gel process, showing a H-2 permeance of 2.6 x 10(-7) mol Pa-1 m(-2) s(-1), with H-2/NH3 and H-2/N-2 permeance ratios of 120 and 180 at 500 degrees C. The BCMR was applied to NH3 decomposition for COx-free hydrogen production. When the reaction was carried out with a NH3 feed flow rate of 40 ml min(-1) at 450 degrees C and the reaction pressure was increased from 0.1 to 0.3 MPa, NH3 conversion decreased from 50.8 to 35.5% without H-2 extraction mainly due to the increased H-2 inhibition effect. With H-2 extraction, however, NH3 conversion increased from 68.8 to 74.4% due to the enhanced driving force for H-2 permeation through the membrane.

    Bis(triethoxysilyl)methane (BTESM), which consists of Si-C-Si bonds, was used as a membrane precursor to control the size of amorphous silica networks. The single gas permeation characteristics of hybrid silica membranes were examined to determine the effect of silica precursors on amorphous networks. Pore size distribution, as determined by single gas permeation, suggested that average pore size was in the following order: bis(triethoxysilyl)ethane (BTESE)-derived silica > BTESM-derived silica > tetraethoxysilane (TEOS)-derived silica, due to differences in the minimum units of the silica precursor. The high C3H6/C3H8 separation performance of BTESM-derived silica membranes in a wide temperature range (50-200 degrees C) can be due to the control of silica network size by the "spacer" method using a Si-C-Si unit. For example, a BTESM-derived silica membrane showed a high C3H6 permeance of 6.32 x 10(-7) mol m(-2) s(-1) Pa-1 with a C3H6/C3H8 permeance ratio of 8.8 at 50 degrees C. The order of C3H6 and C3H8 permeances of BTESM-derived silica membranes was C3H6 > C3H8, independent of the number of sol coats and temperature (50-200 degrees C), although the kinetic diameter of C3H6 (d(k) = 0.45 nm) was reported to be larger than that of C3H8 (d(k) = 0.43 nm). For permeation of hydrocarbons through amorphous silica membranes, it is suggested that the kinetic diameter, which is a minimum equilibrium cross-sectional diameter, is not applicable for effective molecular size, probably because diffusivity depends not only on the minimum cross section but also on molecular length.

    Hybrid organically bridged silica membranes have attracted considerable attention because of their high performances in a variety of applications. Development of robust reverse osmosis (RO) membranes to withstand aggressive operating conditions is still a major challenge. Here, a new type of microporous organosilica membrane has been developed and applied in reverse osmosis. Sol-gel derived organosilica RO membranes reject isopropanol with rejection higher than 95%, demonstrating superior molecular sieving ability for neutral solutes of low molecular weight. Due to the introduction of an inherently stable hybrid network structure, the membrane withstands higher temperatures in comparison with commercial polyamide RO membranes, and is resistant to water to at least 90 degrees C with no obvious changes in filtration performance. Furthermore, both an accelerated chlorine-resistance test and Fourier transform infrared analysis confirm excellent chlorine stability in this material, which demonstrates promise for a new generation of chlorine-resistant RO membrane materials.

    Methylated SiO2 colloidal sol solutions were prepared by hydrolysis and condensation reactions of mixed tetraethoxysilane (TEOS) and methyltriethoxysilane (MTES) using EtOH as a solvent with NH3 as a catalyst. Organic/inorganic hybrid membranes were prepared by coating porous substrates with the methylated SiO2 solutions and calcinating at 400-600 degrees C in an N-2 atmosphere. Nanopermporometry characterization using water and hexane as a condensable vapor confirmed the successful preparation of hydrophobic nano-sized pores of 2-4 nm (hexane-based). The hexane permeability of methylated SiO2 membranes was almost constant following the addition of water in concentrations of 0-80 ppm (saturated), but the permeability of hydrophilic TiO2 membranes was decreased by the addition of water. Methylated SiO2 membranes were applied for the nanofiltration of polyolefin oligomers in hexane solutions. The hexane permeability of polyolefin oligomers/hexane solutions was approximately the same as that of pure hexane, which suggested there was no fouling of the hydrophobic SiO2 membranes and hexane solutions. Methylated SiO2 membranes showed a hexane permeability of 2.0-7.58 x 10(-11) m(3)/(m(2) s Pa), which corresponds to 7.2 and 27 L/(m(2) h bar), with molecular weight cut-offs of 1000-2000.

    Organic/inorganic hybrid silica membranes were prepared from 1,1,3,3-tetraethoxy-1,3-dimethyl disiloxane (TEDMDS) by the sol-gel technique firing at 300-550 degrees C in N-2. TEDMDS-derived silica membranes showed high H-2 permeance (0.3-1.1 x 10(-6) mol m(-2) s(-1) Pa-1) with low H-2/N-2 (similar to 10) and high H-2/SF6 (similar to 1200) perm-selectivity, confirming successful tuning of micropore sizes larger than TEOS-derived silica membranes. TEDMDS-derived silica membranes prepared at 550 degrees C in N-2 increased gas permeances as well as pore sizes after air exposure at 450 degrees C. TEDMDS had an advantage in tuning pore size by the "template" and "spacer" techniques, due to the pyrolysis of methyl groups in air and Si-O-Si bonding, respectively. For pore size evaluation of microporous membranes, normalized Knudsen-based permeance, which was proposed based on the gas translation model and verified with permeance of zeolite membranes, reveals that pore sizes of TEDMDS membranes were successfully tuned in the range of 0.6-1.0 nm.

    A molecular dynamics (MD) technique using h-pcff force field was adopted to analyze the micro-structure and gas transport behavior of an organic-inorganic hybrid bis(triethoxysilyl)ethane (BTESE) silica membrane. The membrane fractional free space (FFS), cavity size distribution (CSD), and fractional accessible volume (FAV) were estimated to discuss how doped Si-C-C-Si segments affect a silica network. The radial distribution function (RDF) of atom pairs was analyzed to investigate the micro-structure of a hybrid silica network. The gas diffusion behavior, including the thermal motion and diffusivity, was calculated to understand the gas transport behavior of the BTESE silica membrane. The analyses of the FFS, CSD, and FAV of the silica membrane indicated that the silica network would expand to form a larger cavity size, indicating a high potential for increased gas permeance. The RDF diagram indicates that the hybrid silica matrix provides a looser structure with higher network fluctuation than that of the pure silica membrane. The gas diffusion behavior analysis revealed that the hybrid silica membrane contained more effective free space, which prompted H(2) diffusivity and also produced a good H(2)/SF(6) diffusivity ratio. The MD technique was successfully applied to simulate the characteristics and gas diffusion behaviors of the hybrid BTESE silica membrane. Demonstration of the superior properties of hybrid BTESE silica using MD technique proves itself to be a promising tool for material development and design on a microscopic view.

    Porous silica membranes with different pore sizes (average pore size: 0.3-1.2 nm) and surface chemistry were prepared from SiO2, steam-treated SiO2, SiO2 AZrO(2), and SiO2-ATiO(2) by sol-gel processing, and were applied to the pervaporation (PV) separation of methanol (MeOH) /dimethyl carbonate (DMC) mixtures at 50 degrees C. Although SiO2 AZrO(2) membranes demonstrated a separation factor of <10, the SiO2 porous membranes had an increased separation factor from 10-160. Silica membranes with an average pore size of 0.3 nm showed the highest permselectivity of methanol with a separation factor of 140 and a methanol flux of 180 mol/(m(2)h) for MeOH 50 mol% at 50 degrees C. To characterize the surface property of SiO2 membranes, SiO2 powdered samples were used for an adsorption experiment of vapor (MeOH, DMC) in single and mixed systems, revealing increased MeOH selective adsorption for SiO2 powders with hydrophilic and small pores, which was consistent with PV performance.

    Silica and cobalt-doped silica membranes that showed a high permeance of 1.8 X 10(-7) mol m(-2) s(-1) Pa(-1) and a H(2)/N(2) permeance ratio of similar to 730, with excellent hydrothermal stability under steam pressure of 300 kPa, were successfully prepared. The permeation mechanism of gas molecules, focusing particularly on hydrogen and water vapor, was investigated in the 300-500 degrees C range and is discussed based on the activation energy of permeation and the selectivity of gaseous molecules. The activation energy of H(2) permeation correlated well with the permeance ratio of He/H(2) for porous silica membranes prepared by sol-gel processing, chemical vapor deposition (CVD), and vitreous glasses, indicating that similar amorphous silica network structures were formed. The permeance ratios of H(2)/H(2)O were found to range from 5 to 40, that is, hydrogen (kinetic diameter: 0.289 nm) was always more permeable than water (0.265 nm).

    A promising strategy is reported for the synthesis of inorganic-polyamide nanocomposite membranes on an ultrafiltration polysulfone support via metal-alkoxide-assisted interfacial polymerization. Three types of nanocomposite membranes were prepared using three different metal alkoxides. The metal alkoxides used here were titanium tetraisopropoxide, bis(triethoxysilyl)ethane and phenyltriethoxysilane. The as-prepared nanocomposite membranes exhibited performance superior to that of the pure polyamide membrane. Water flux and salt rejection were observed for each of the nanocomposite membranes. Addition of greater amounts of metal alkoxide to the hexane solution increased both pore size and water flux, which were determined by analysis of the membrane permeation data using aqueous solutions of sodium chloride and organic solutes at a pressure of 1.5 MPa and a temperature of 25 degrees C. The best nanocomposite membrane that was prepared with phenyltriethoxysilane showed water flux that was increased approximately 2-fold compared with the pure polyamide membrane with negligible rejection loss.

    The development of gas separation membranes able to work at high temperatures require robust and thin ceramic layers. In this work, zirconia membranes have been prepared by the sol-gel method, following the colloidal sol route. The microporosity and crystallinity of the ZrO2 material was tested by N2 adsorption and XRD. The derived active zirconia layers were defect-free as seen by SEM. The optimum firing temperature range was set in the range 400-500 degrees C. He, H2, CO2, N2 gas permeation was conducted at temperatures up to 200 degrees C. High permeances were obtained and the microporosity of the zirconia layer was confirmed.

    Nanoporous Mania membranes with controlled pore sizes ranging from 0.7 to 2.5 nm, which had molecular weight cutoffs (MWCO) ranging from 500 to 2000, were successfully prepared by sol-gel processing, and the transport characteristics were evaluated across a temperature range of 30-80 degrees C. With increasing temperature, the permeate flux increased 2- to 3-fold, depending on the pore size. The water permeation mechanism was found to be different from viscous flow and was explained by the state of the water (free water/bound water/nonfreezing water) inside confined pores. The rejection of neutral solutes such as raffinose, the separation mechanism of which is molecular sieving (steric hindrance), decreased with temperature whereas that of electrolytes (MgCl2 and NaCl), the separation mechanism of which is the charge effect (Donnan exclusion), was approximately constant. The temperature dependence of neutral and electrolyte solutes was analyzed using the Spiegler-Kedem equation by combining the Arrhenius equations for diffusivity and viscosity, which we obtained Delta E-m the activation energy of diffusion, after eliminating the effect of viscosity. For large Delta E-m, which corresponds to the rejection of neutral solutes on the basis of molecular sieving, rejection decreased with temperature but remained unchanged for small Delta E-m, which corresponds to the rejection of electrolytes based on the charge effect.

    A sol-gel method was applied for the preparation of silica membranes with different average pore sizes. Ammonia (NH3) permeation/separation characteristics of the silica membranes were examined in a wide temperature range (50-400 degrees C) by measurement of both single and binary component separation. The order of gas permeance through the silica membranes, which was independent of membrane average pore size, was as follows: He > H-2 > NH3 > N-2. These results suggest that, for permeation through silica membranes, the molecular size of NH3 is larger than that of H-2, despite previous reports that the kinetic diameter of NH3 is smaller than that of H-2. At high temperatures, there was no effect of NH3 adsorption on H-2 permeation characteristics, and silica membranes were highly stable in NH3 at 400 degrees C (i.e., gas permeance remained unchanged). On the other hand, at 50 degrees C NH3 molecules adsorbed on the silica improved NH3-permselectivity by blocking permeation of H-2 molecules without decreasing NH3 permeance. The maximal NH3/H-2 permeance ratio obtained during binary component separation was similar to 30 with an NH3 permeance of similar to 10(-7) mol m(-2) s(-1) Pa-1 at an H-2 permeation activation energy of similar to 6 kJ mol(-1).

    In this study, pervaporation (PV) performance of porous silica membranes during dehydration of ethanol aqueous solutions was correlated with single gas permeation data in an attempt to predict PV performance. Porous silica membranes were prepared using a sol-gel technique with silica or cobalt-doped silica sols fired at different temperatures (from 350 degrees C to 550 degrees C) in air. Single gas permeation experiments were performed using pure gases (He, N(2), CO(2) and SF(6)) at 200 degrees C just after membrane preparation. PV experiments were carried out at 70 degrees C at an ethanol feed concentration of 94 wt%. The time-course of PV performance and temperature-dependence for a single gas were investigated. The reproducibility of PV separation and gas permeation was investigated and confirmed. An attempt was made to find correlations between single gas permeation experimental data and PV separation performance. The permeance of He was reasonably well correlated with PV water flux. The permeance ratio of He/SF(6) was correlated with the PV separation factor.

    Hybrid silica membranes were prepared using 1,1,3,3-tetraethoxy-1,3-dimethyldisiloxane (TEDMDS) as a silica precursor. Hybrid silica sol was synthesized by the acetic acid catalyzed hydrolysis and condensation of TEDMDS in ethanol as a solvent with different water molar ratio. Porous silica membranes were fabricated by coating the TEDMDS-derived hybrid silica sol, followed by drying and firing at 300 degrees C or 450 degrees C in nitrogen atmosphere. Single gas permeation characteristic of He, H-2, N-2, and SF6 through TEDMDS-derived silica membranes were measured at 200 degrees C. It was found that TEDMDS-derived silica membranes had loose amorphous structure than TEOS-derived silica membranes. TEDMDS-derived silica membrane fired at 300 degrees C using TEDMDS/H2O = 1/20 sol showed H-2 permeance of 2.05 x 10(-6) m(3) m(-2) s(-1) kPa(-1) with H-2/SF6 selectivity of 260 degrees C at 200 degrees C. The water contact angles of TEDMDS-derived silica film were constant even after kept in humid atmosphere (60 RH%, 40 degrees C) for about 35 d, suggesting a hydrophobic property due to the presence of CH3 groups.

    Bis(triethoxysilyl) ethane (BTESE), which consists of Si-C-C-Si bonds, was used as a silica precursor to prepare organic-inorganic hybrid silica membranes with loose amorphous networks. Single-gas permeation and binary-component gas separation characteristics for hybrid silica membranes were examined to discuss the effect of silica precursors on amorphous networks. The pore size distribution, as determined by single-gas permeation, suggested BTESE-derived silica membranes have loose amorphous structures compared to TEOS-derived silica membranes due to the differences in the minimum units of silica networks. For example, BTESE-derived silica membranes showed a high hydrogen permeance (0.2-1 x 10(-5) Mol m(-2) s(-1) Pa(-1)) with a high selectivity of H(2) to SF(6) (H(2)/SF(6) permselectivity: 1000-25,500) and a low H(2) to N(2) permselectivity (similar to 20). The binary-component gas separation of He and SF(6) for a BTESE-derived silica membrane revealed that the swelling effect (adsorption-induced expansion of the zeolite crystals) by SF(6) molecules, which has been suggested for zeolite membranes, was not observed in amorphous silica networks. In the present study, BTESE-derived silica membranes had high hydrothermal stability due to the presence of Si-C-C-Si bonds in the amorphous silica network. (C) 2009 Elsevier B.V.

    Sol-gel method was applied for the preparation of organic-inorganic hybrid silica membranes. 1,3,5,7-tetramethylcyclotetrasiloxane (TMCTS) and bis (triethoxysilyl) ethane (BTESE) were used as silica precursors instead of tetraethoxysilane (TEOS) for the preparation of organic-inorganic hybrid silica membranes. Molecular weight of hybrid silica polymer was successfully controlled by reaction time and reaction temperature. Single gas permeation characteristics for hybrid silica membranes were examined to discuss the effect of silica precursor on amorphous silica networks. Pore size distribution suggested hybrid silica membranes derived by BTESE and TMCTS had loose amorphous silica structures compared to silica membranes derived by TEOS. Hybrid silica membranes derived by BTESE and TMCTS showed high hydrogen permeance (0.3-1 x 10(-5) mol.m(-2).s(-1).Pa(-1)) with high selectivity of H(2) to SF(6) (H(2)/SF(6) permselectivity: similar to 1,000) and low H(2) to N(2) permselectivity (similar to 10). It was found that hybrid silica membrane derived by TMCTS had high hydrothermal stability due to the presence of CH(3) groups in amorphous silica networks.

    Pore structures of microporous silica membranes, and the relationship between membrane structural characteristics and gas permeation properties were studied by molecular dynamics (MD) simulation. Virtual SiO(2) membranes were prepared by the melt-quench procedure utilizing Born-Mayer-Huggines (BMH) pair potential and Stillinger-Weber (SW) three-body interactions. In this study, two types of virtual SiO(2) membrane models were prepared: a network pore model formed by silica polymers; and a bimodal pore model consisting of network pores and penetrating pores, which simulated an inter-particle pore. Gas permeation simulations were conducted using a dual control plane non-equilibrium molecular dynamics (DCP-NEMD) method. Helium and CO(2) were adopted as permeating gas species, and their permeabilities were calculated at temperatures from 300 to 800 K. In the case of the network model, permeation of CO(2) could not be observed, and helium permeation characteristics were in good agreement with experimental data. These results showed the qualitative validity of the network pore model prepared in this study. In the case of bimodal pore model, permeation of CO(2) could be observed, so this result indicated the existence of an inter-particle pore effect on gas permeation properties. In addition, CO(2) permeation characteristics were in agreement with experimental data, thus indicating the qualitative validity of the network pore model and penetrating pore model.However, the simulated permeabilities of helium and CO(2) by the bimodal pore model were larger than those previously reported for actual silica membranes. The bimodal pore model prepared in this study underestimates the ratio of network pore area per inter-particle pore, since the simulated permeability of each gas through the bimodal pore model could be approximated to experimental data by increasing the ratio of network pore area per inter-particle pore. Optimization of the virtual silica membrane area showed that one inter-particle pore existed per square with side length of about 8-11.5 nm. Such a valuable finding about the microstructure of a silica membrane as the ratio of "network pore area/inter-particle pore" could be obtained by using molecular dynamics simulation.

    A sol-gel method was applied for the preparation of palladium-doped silica membranes for hydrogen separation. Hydrogen permeation performance and stability (thermal, hydrothermal) were evaluated by measuring the time and temperature dependence of gas permeances (N(2), H(2) , He) in N(2) and steam atmospheres (steam: 70 kPa) at 500 degrees C, respectively. It was found that the Pd-doped silica layer has a thickness of approximately 80 nm, and Pd particles of several nanometers were well dispersed in an amorphous silica matrix. Pd-doped silica membranes (Si/Pd=3/1) fired at 550 degrees C in air were quite stable in N(2) atmosphere at 500 degrees C, but a drastic decrease of gas permeances (He, H(2), N(2)) and an increase of activation energy of gas permeation (He, H(2)) were observed under H(2) atmosphere at 500 degrees C due to aggregation of Pd particles. Pd-doped silica membranes (Si/Pd=3/1) fired at 550 degrees C in H(2) showed high stability in hydrogen and steam atmospheres (steam: 70 kPa) at 500 degrees C. This is because well-dispersed Pd particles in amorphous silica networks could not move in hydrogen and steam atmospheres.

    Pd-silica mixed-matrix membranes with superior H(2) permeability and hydrothermal stability at high temperatures were successfully fabricated using a sol-gel method. The Pd-silica layer was quite thin (100-200 nm) and small Pd particles (several nm) dispersed well in an amorphous silica matrix.

    A new molecular dynamics simulation method was successfully applied to construct a homogeneous organic-inorganic hybrid silica membrane using the hybrid-pcff (h-pcff) potential function. Analysis suggested that the hybrid BTESE silica membrane provided a looser network and larger cavity size for the enhancement of gas permeability and selectivity.

    A sol-gel method was applied for the development of highly permeable hydrogen separation membranes using bis(triethoxysilyl)ethane (BTESE) as a silica precursor. Hybrid silica membranes showed quite high hydrogen permeance (1 x 10(-5) mol m(-2) s(-1) Pa-1) with a high H-2-to-SF6 selectivity of 1000 because of loose organic-inorganic silica networks. Hybrid silica membranes were found to show high hydrothermal. stability due to the presence of Si-C-C-Si bonds in silica networks.

    Nanoporous titania membranes, with pore sizes ranging from I to several nm, were prepared by sol-gel processing and applied to permeation of hexane as a model nonaqueous solution system. TiO(2) membranes showed a deceased hexane flux with an increase in water concentration, which was dissolved in hexane from zero to several hundred ppm. Nanopermporometry characterization before and after hexane permeation showed no change in pore structures of TiO(2) membranes. Therefore, it was suggested that the dissolved water adsorbed to the hydrophilic TiO(2) surface and reduced the effective pore size for hexane permeation. Negative rejection was observed in nanofiltration of linoleic acid in hexane solutions, that is, the linoleic acid was concentrated in permeate. Negative rejection was enhanced with decreasing pore diameter.

    Imaginary amorphous silica membranes were prepared on a computer and gas permeation simulations were conducted using a dual control plane non-equilibrium molecular dynamics (DCP-NEMD) method. The Melt-Quench technique was employed to prepare vanous types of imaginary amorphous silica membranes which had different densities (from 1.3 to 2.2 g/cm(3)) and different mean pore sizes. Helium was adopted as a permeating gas species and its permeability was calculated at temperatures from 300 to 800 K. The Knudsen diffusion-like temperature dependencies of permeability could be observed for densities below 1.7 g/cm(3), while the activated diffusion for the higher density models. We have also examined the effect of 3-body membrane potential parameters on membrane dynamics and gas permeation properties. The larger thermal vibration of oxygen atoms both in siloxane bonds and silanol groups on membranes could be observed for greater gamma(1) parameter in the SW potential function, which might result in the change of activation energy for gas permeation.

    Co-doped silica sol solutions with varying Co composition (Co/(Si+Co)=10-50 mol%) were prepared from tetraethoxysilane and Co(NO(3))(2).6H(2)O. Subsequently, these solutions were used in the preparation of hydrogen separation microporous membranes with enhanced hydrothermal stability at 500 degrees C under a steam pressure of 300 kPa. At Co concentrations > 33%, the XRD pattern and peak intensity of the Co-doped silica preparations were similar and were not dependent on Co composition, suggesting that Co was incorporated into the silica network. The best H(2) permeation performance in a steam atmosphere (500 degrees C; steam pressure, 300 kPa) was obtained using silica doped with approximately 30 mol% Co. Co-doped silica membranes (Co 33 mol%) fired at 600 degrees C under a steam partial pressure of 90 kPa showed stable gaseous permeances and a H(2) permeance of approximately 2.00-4.00 x 10(-6) m(3)(STP).(m.s.kPa)(-1) with a selectivity of 250-730 (H(2)/N(2)), even after 60 h of exposure to steam (steam pressure, 300 kPa) at 500 degrees C.

    Hydrogen production by steam reforming of methane using catalytic membrane reactors was investigated first by simulation, then by experimentation. The membrane reactor simulation, using an isothermal and plug-flow model with selective permeation from reactant stream to permeate stream, was conducted to evaluate the effect of permselectivity on membrane reactor performance - such as methane conversion and hydrogen yield - at pressures as high as 1000 kPa. The simulation study, with a target for methane conversion of 0.8, showed that hydrogen yield and production rate have approximately the same dependency on operating conditions, such as reaction pressure, if the permeance ratio of hydrogen over nitrogen (alpha(H-2/N-2)) is larger than 100 and of H-2 over H2O is larger than 15. Catalytic membrane reactors, consisting of a microporous Ni-doped SiO2 top layer and a catalytic support, were prepared and applied experimentally for steam reforming of methane at 500 degrees C. A bimodal catalytic support, which allows large diffusivity and high dispersion of the metal catalyst, was prepared for the enhancement of membrane catalytic activity. Catalytic membranes having H-2 permeances in the range of 2-5 x 10(-6) m(3) m(-2) s(-1) kPa(-1), with H-2/N-2 of 25-500 and H-2/H2O of 6-15, were examined for steam reforming of methane. Increased performance for the production of hydrogen was experimentally obtained with an increase in reaction-side pressure (as high as 500 kPa), which agreed with the theoretical simulation with no fitting parameters.

    The mechanisms involved in pressure-driven gas permeation through a micropore on vitreous SiO2 membranes were examined molecular dynamics (MD) simulation. Virtual amorphous SiO2 membranes were prepared by the melt-quench method utilizing modified Born-Mayer-Huggins (BMH) pair potential and Stillinger-Weber (SW) three-body interactions. A dual control plane non-equilibrium MD (DCP-NEMD) technique was employed to simulate gas permeation phenomena under a constant upstream pressure, in which the permeating molecules were modeled as Lennard-Jones particles. The dependencies of the permeance of helium and CO2 molecules on temperature and pore size were examined. For cylindrical pores about 8 and 6 angstrom in diameter, the calculated temperature dependencies for the permeance of helium molecules were similar to the tendencies predicted by the normal Knudsen permeation mechanism, while in the case Of CO2 permeation, a temperature dependency larger than helium and a significant deviation from the Knudsen mechanism were observed. The deviation was more obvious for the smaller 6 angstrom pore model. A simple gas permeation model that takes the effect of the pore wall potential field into consideration satisfactorily explained the permeation properties Of CO2 in the high temperature region. The permeation mechanism was also examined from the viewpoint of the lateral potential and density distribution in a micropore. The values for the potential within micropores, predicted from the observed temperature dependencies of the gas permeation rate and using the simple gas permeation model, were in good agreement with the depth of the potential field resulting from the given potential parameters. The findings also indicate that the density (pressure) difference in a micropore between the pore entrance and exit, which could be enhanced by an attractive pore wall potential, might be the true driving force for permeation, particularly in the high temperature region.

    Five kinds of micro-porous SiO2-ZrO2 (ZrO2; 50 mol%) membranes of slightly different pore sizes less than 1 nm were prepared by the sol-gel techniques to study the pervaporation characteristics of some aqueous solutions of organic chemicals. Since no direct evaluation techniques to determine the membrane pore-sizes less than I nm have yet been established, the pore sizes of the membranes fabricated were estimated by observing the permeances of gases of various molecular diameters at 200 degrees C.Some pervaporation measurements of aqueous solutions of organic chemicals such as iso-propanol, ethanol and acetone have been done with the membranes fabricated in order to study the effects of the membrane pore size and the molecular interaction with the pore wall on the pervaporation performance. The pervaporation results for IPA/water mixture at 10 wt.% of water and at 75 degrees C showed a long time dependency of IPA and water fluxes. The IPA flux decreased drastically, while that of water decreased slightly, giving a large separation factor, larger than 15,000, after several hours of pervaporation with water fluxes of 120-300 mol/m(2)h, for example.The observed concentration dependency of the IPA flux showed a maximum at around 48 mol% of IPA and then decreased with increasing IPA concentration in the feed. A similar behavior of the ethanol flux was observed for ethanol/water mixtures, but not for acetone/water mixtures. The acetone flux increased monotonously with the increase of acetone concentration in the feed.The pervaporation results obtained for the membranes of different pore sizes suggest that the separation performance depends largely on the pore size and also on the interaction between the molecules and the pore wall.

    Porous titanium oxide membranes with pore sizes in the range of 2.5-22 nm were prepared by a sol-gel procedure, and were applied for decomposition of methanol and ethanol as model volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in a photocatalytic membrane reactor, where oxidation reaction occurs both on the surface and inside the porous TiO2 membrane while reactants are permeating via one-pass flow. Methanol was completely photo-oxidized by black-light irradiation to CO2 when methanol at a concentration of 100ppm was used at a feed flow rate of 500 x 10(-6) m(3)/min, but the conversion decreased when the MeOH concentration in the feed was increased. Pt-modification was carried out by photo-deposition, and led to a decrease in pore diameter. Using Pt-modified membranes, a nearly complete oxidation of methanol up to 10,000 ppm at a feed flow rate of 500 x 10-6 m(3)/min was observed. Thus, such membranes would be effective for purifying a permeate stream after one-pass permeation through the TiO2 membranes. The decomposition of ethanol is also discussed. (c) 2006 Elsevier B.V.

    The steam reforming of methane for hydrogen production was experimentally investigated using catalytic membrane reactors, Consisting of a microporous silica top layer, for the selective permeation of hydrogen, and an alpha-alumina support layer, for catalytic reaction of the steam reforming of methane. An alpha-alumina support layer with a bimodal structure, which was proposed for the enhanced dispersion of Ni catalysts, was prepared by impregnating gamma-Al2O3 inside alpha-Al2O3 microfiltration membranes (1 mu m in pore diameter), and then immersing the membranes in a nickel nitrate solution, resulting in a bimodal catalytic support. The bimodal catalytic support showed a large conversion of methane at a high space velocity compared with a conventional catalytic membrane with a monomodal structure. The enhanced activity of Ni-catalysts in bimodal catalytic supports was confirmed by hydrogen adsorption measurements. A bimodal catalytic membrane, i.e. a silica membrane coated on a bimodal catalytic support, showing an approximate selectivity of hydrogen over nitrogen of 100 with a hydrogen permeance of (0.5-1) x 10(-5) m(3) m(-2) s(-1) kPa(-1) was examined for the steam reforming of methane. The reaction was carried out at 500 degrees C, and the feed and permeate pressures were maintained at 100 and 20 kPa, respectively. Methane conversion could be increased up to approximately 0.7 beyond the equilibrium conversion of 0.44 by extracting hydrogen from the reaction stream to the permeate stream. (c) 2006 Elsevier B.V.

    Porous silica-zirconia membranes with pore diameters from 0.8 to 2 nm were prepared by a sol-gel process, and applied to the separation of alcohols (hexanol, octanol, decanol) and alkanes (hexane, decane, tetradecane) in ethanol solutions by reverse osmosis over the temperature range from 25 to 60 degrees C A silica-zirconia membrane with a pore diameter of I nm showed a molecular weight-cut-off (MWCO) of 200 in ethanol solutions. Rejection increased with the applied pressure, for both alcohol and alkane solutes. However, the rejection of alcohols was found to decrease with temperature, while that for alkanes remained nearly constant. The separation characteristics were examined for the following membrane parameters: solvent permeability, L-P, reflection coefficient, sigma, and solute permeability, P, based on the Spiegler-Kedent equation. The viscosity of solutions and the diffusivity of alkanes and alcohol solutes in nano-sized pores were found to show a larger temperature dependency than in bulk. The diffusivity of alkane solutes showed the same temperature dependency as the viscosity of ethanol in nano-sized pores, while the diffusivity of alcohol solutes showed a larger temperature dependency than the viscosity of ethanol, probably because of a larger interaction between alcohol solutes and the hydrophilic surface of silica-zirconia membranes. Diffusion experiments were carried out to confirm the temperature dependency of the diffusivities in nano-sized pores. A bilayer model verified that solute permeabilities by reverse osmosis and diffusion experiments were consistent with each other. 0 2005 American Institute of Chemical Engineers AIChE J, 52: 522-531,2006

    Non-equilibrium molecular dynamics simulations of condensable vapor permeation and permeation of condensable and non-condensable gas mixtures through a sub-nano-scale pore were conducted on a virtual amorphous silica membrane that was prepared by the melt-quench procedures. In the permeation properties of ethane-like U particle through a pore of 8 A in diameter, a surface diffusion-like temperature dependency was observed in a relatively high temperature region (400-800 K), while at around room temperatures, the permeance decreased with decreasing temperature. The permeance of non-condensable nitrogen-like particles. which have smaller affinity with the pore surface than ethane, was smaller than those of ethane, and a surface diffusion-like temperature dependency curve was observed for the temperature range from room temperature up to 800 K. In simulations of permeation for ethane/nitrogen binary mixtures at 260 K, a temperature below the critical temperature (T-C) of actual ethane, the concentration dependency of ethane permeance was relatively small in the low concentration (partial pressure) region, and above a higher specific concentration, the permeance largely decreased. The nitrogen permeance decreased with increasing ethane concentration in the low ethane concentration region, and was smaller at any partial pressure conditions compared with those observed in single nitrogen gas permeation simulations. These findings indicate that a condensable component that has larger interaction with the pore surface obstructs the transport of a non-con den sable one to decrease its permeance. The formation of a micropore filling phase of condensable gases in a micropore at temperatures below T-C and at sufficiently high pressures could also decrease the permeance of the condensable component. This molecular dynamics simulation revealed that the micropore filling phenomenon should play an important role in determining the permeation performance of condensable gases through a micropore.

    Nanoporous TiO2 membranes (1 cm in diameter, 9 cm in length) were prepared by coating colloidal TiO2 sol solutions on the outer surface of cylindrical porous membranes (average pore diameter I um) and firing at 450&DEG; C, and applied in a photocatalytic membrane reactor. In this system, a feed stream is forced through the membrane to yield a purified permeate where organic pollutants are degraded by photocatalytic reaction. Methylene blue (MB) was used as a model solute and was irradiated with blacklight lamps (BL) to promote the photocatalytic reaction. TiO2 membranes with an average pore diameter of 10nm, yielded a normalized permeate concentration relative to feed concentration, C-p/C-f, of approximately 40% (60% rejection), based on the molecular sieving effect without BL irradiation. The normalized permeate concentration of MB decreased to 5% under BL irradiation, depending on experimental conditions such as feed concentration and applied pressure. The molecular sieving and the photocatalytic reaction can be combined to improve the selectivity. Permeate volume flux without BL irradiation decreased with an increase in feed concentration of MB, because of pore blocking by MB. On the other hand, the permeate flux increased with BL irradiation and showed approximately constant values irrespective of MB concentration. This suggested that the permeate flux was restored by photocatalytic degradation of MB which fouled the membranes.

    Methane steam reforming, with and without added oxygen, was theoretically and experimentally investigated using microporous silica membranes, thus allowing the permeation of hydrogen as well as other gases in reactants and products. A simulation of catalytic membrane reactors was carried out for a cocurrent, isothermal, and plug-flow-type membrane reactor with the selective permeation of hydrogen through microporous membranes. The effect of operating conditions on the conversion of methane and hydrogen production is discussed with the aid of two dimensionless numbers, the Damkohler number (Da) and the permeation number (theta). Methane conversion, X-CH4, has approximately the same dependency on permeation number in terms of the permeability ratios of hydrogen over nitrogen, whereas the purity of hydrogen in the permeate increased with increasing hydrogen selectivity. Catalytic membrane reactors, consisting of a silica microporous layer and a Ni-catalyst layer, were prepared. The permeability ratio of hydrogen over steam, alpha(H-2/H2O), which ranged from 1 to 20, showed a relatively good correlation with that for helium over hydrogen, alpha(He/H-2). Catalytic membrane reactors showing a hydrogen selectivity over nitrogen of 30-100, with hydrogen permeances of 0.5(-3) X 10(-7) mol m(-2) s(-1) Pa-1 were applied to the steam reforming of methane with and without the addition of oxygen. The reaction was carried out at 500degreesC, and the feed and permeate pressure were maintained at 100 and 20 kPa, respectively. Methane conversion, X-CH4, increased up to approximately 0.8 beyond the equilibrium conversion of 0.44 by extracting hydrogen in permeate stream. (C) 2004 American Institute of Chemical Engineers

    The steam reforming of methane with addition of a small amount of oxygen was simulated in a co-current, isothermal and plug-flow-type membrane reactor with selective permeation of hydrogen. The effect of operating conditions on the conversion of methane and the permeated hydrogen yield was investigated using two dimensionless numbers, the Damkohler number and the permeation number, theta. Methane conversion, X-CH4, shows approximately the same dependency on permeation number in terms of the permeability ratio of hydrogen to nitrogen, while hydrogen purity in the permeate increased with an increase in hydrogen selectivity. As for heat balance of the membrane reactor, the addition of oxygen, which generates heat of combustion, in feed at O/C of 0.3 to the endothermic steam-reforming reaction, is required to maintain the membrane reactor autothermal. For the case of heat-balance of membrane reactor system, which considers the heat balance of the membrane reactor and the heat of combustion of the retentate stream, the system can be autothermal for the case of methane conversion of 0.7-0.8.

    A boundary driven non-equilibrium molecular dynamics simulation method was used to study gas permeation mechanisms through microporous amorphous silica membranes. Two types of silica membranes were prepared, one by random atom-removing and the other by regular pore-digging procedures. The former was a dense membrane that served as a model for network pores formed by silica polymers and the latter had a penetrating cylindrical pore which simulated an inter-particle pore. The permeances of He, H-2 and Ne through network models with densities of 1.7 and 1.8 g cm(-3) increased with decreasing temperature, while activated permeation was observed for the denser models. Deviations in the permeation properties from those predicted by the Knudsen model became greater with increasing membrane density as the result of molecular sieving effects. The permeance of H-2 through a cylindrical pore 0.6 nm in diameter was greater than that for He at all temperatures examined as predicted by the Knudsen model, and the greater interaction of CO2 with the pore surface yielded a larger temperature-dependency curve for permeance, compared to He and H-2 . The simulated permeation properties of several gases were in agreement with experimental data on actual microporous silica membranes, indicating the qualitative validity of the microporous structure model composed of small openings in a silica network phase and larger inter-particle pores.

    A photocatalytic membrane reactor, in which permeation of solutes through a membrane and a photocatalytic reaction occur simultaneously, that is, a photocatalytic membrane reactor, is described. Using trichloroethylene (TCE), a decomposition ratio in excess of 95% in the permeate stream to that in the feed stream was achieved by means of porous titanium oxide (TiO2) membranes, when approximately I ppm TCE solution was fed to the TiO2 membranes under irradiation by a blacklight. The decomposition ratio, defined as the concentration ratio of the permeate to the feed stream, decreased with applied pressure and the feed concentration. A proposed photocatalytic reaction model where a photocatalytic reaction in the outer reaction zone and in the inner reaction zone under membrane permeation conditions is consistent with the observed experimental data.

    Silica-zirconia (SZ, molar ratio 9/1) membranes, the pore size of which were adjusted in a range of approximately 13 1-3 nm, were prepared by the sol-gel process. Several of these membranes were modified via a gas-phase reaction with trimethylchlorosilane (TMS) at 200 degreesC. Various types of pure solvents were permeated at temperatures in the range of 20-60 degreesC. The collected data shows that the transport mechanism through the unmodified membranes does not obey the viscous flow mechanism, since pure solvent permeabilities multiplied by the viscosity, L(p)mu, which should be constant for the case of the viscous-flow mechanism, increased with temperature. On the other hand, SZ membranes modified with TMS showed a relatively constant L(p)mu, suggesting that the viscous flow mechanism holds. The nanofiltration of ethanol solutions with alkanes (hexane, decane, tetradecane) and alcohols (hexanol, octanol, decanol) as solutes was investigated. An SZ membrane having an average pore size of 1 nm showed a molecular weigh cut-off of approximately 200 and an approximate permeate flux of 3 kg m(-2) h(-1) at 60 degreesC under an applied pressure of 30 bar. Rejections of alkanes were almost constant irrespective of temperatures, while those of alcohols decreased with temperature. (C) 2003 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.

    Silica-zirconia membranes having pore sizes in the range 0.5-2 nm, determined using water as a condensable gas (vapor) by nanopermporometry, were prepared by the sol-gel process, and used in gas permeation experiments. The permeability ratio of He/N-2 approached the Knudsen value (= 2.6) for pore sizes larger than 2 nm. It then decreased with decreasing pore size, probably because of an enhanced contribution of surface diffusion in the small pore, and showed a minimum at an approximate pore size of 1 rim. It then increased to approximately 50 for a membrane having pore sizes of 0.3 nm. For the case of He/SF6, the curve appears to shift to a larger Kelvin diameter, probably because of the larger molecular size of SF6 as well as adsorption. The effects of non-condensable gases (He and N-2) were examined using silica-zirconia membranes of 2 and 0.8 nm in pore size. The pore size distribution (PSD) curves measured by He and N-2 were in good agreement with each other for membranes having a pore size as large as 2 nm. On the other hand, for the case of porous membranes having small pore sizes, PSD curves measured using He were shifted to a smaller pore size, compared with those measured by N-2. This suggests the existence of micropores, which allowed the permeation of only He. Moreover, nanopermporometry was applied to MFI zeolite membranes to characterize selective (intracrystalline) and non-selective pores (intercrystalline) using hexane, and the data were in reasonable agreement with the observed separation performances.

    Photocatalytic membrane reactors using porous titanium oxide membranes having pore sizes of several nanometers were utilized for a gas-phase reaction of methanol. Air mixed with methanol (MeOH) vapor, the concentration of which was controlled in the range of 500-6000 ppm, was fed to the photocatalytic membrane reactor in the range of 50-500 cm(3)/min using several types of flow patterns. Photocatalysis with membrane permeation resulted in a large decomposition rate, compared to photocatalysis without membrane permeation. The characteristics of the reaction such as decomposition ratio of MeOH, the conversion of the decomposed MeOH to CO2 and H2O were found to be a function of the residence time in the reactor. The photocatalytic reaction was analyzed based on pseudo-first-order kinetics to ascertain its simplicity, and the fitted curves were found to be in a relatively good agreement with the experimental data. Apparent rate constants with and without membrane permeation were 2.5 and 1.5 X 10(-6) m s(-1), respectively, indicating that the performance of the photocatalytic reaction system with membrane permeation was enhanced.

    Molecular dynamics (MD) simulations of condensable vapor permeation through sub-nano scale pores were conducted for a virtual amorphous silica membrane, prepared by melt-quench procedures. The simulated permeance of C2H6 (T-C = 305 K)-like LJ particles through an 8 Angstrom in diameter pore showed a surface diffusion-like temperature dependency in the relatively high temperature region (400-800 K), while at around 300 K, the permeance decreased with decreasing temperature. That is, a maximum was observed in the temperature dependency curve for permeance. The critical temperature, T-C of the permeating condensable vapor could be a contributing factor in the permeation properties through the micropore. The simulated permeance of C2H6 at 260 K decreased with increasing mean pressure. At low pressure, where micropore filling would not be expected to occur, an almost gas like permeation was observed even at temperatures below the T-C, while under micrpore filling conditions at a relatively high pressure, the permeance abruptly decreased. Adsorption simulations were also conducted on the same unit cell, and the mobility of the adsorbed molecules in the micropore filling phase were smaller than those in the lower density phase. Through this investigation of temperature and pressure dependency of permeance, it can be concluded that the development of the micropore filling phase led to a decrease in permeance, and transport as the condensed filling phase through the micropore was an activated process.

    Y Takata, T Tsuru, T Yoshioka, M Asaeda

    MFI zeolite membranes having different Si/Al ratios were prepared by secondary growth of crystalline colloidal seeds under hydrothermal conditions. An MFI membrane of Si/Al=infinity showed a n-C4H10 permeance of 1.5X10(-5) m(3) (STP)m(-2) s(-1) kPa(-1) and a n/i-C4H10 selectivity of 15 at 150degreesC. By addition of Al into MFI membranes, the zeolite layers appeared to be randomly oriented, and n/i-C4H10 selectivities were decreased. Methylation of toluene using MFI catalytic membrane reactors was carried out at 400-500degreesC. Toluene conversions increased with reaction temperature and a maximal p-xylene selectivity of 80% was achieved. suggesting the effectiveness of MFI catalytic membrane reactors.

  • Organic/inorganic nanohybrid membranes for nanofiltration of nonaqueous solutions

    T Tsuru, H Kondo, T Yoshioka, M Asaeda

    Silica/zirconia (SZ; Si/ Zr molar ratio = 9/1) membranes having pore sizes in the range of 1similar to3 nm were prepared by the sol-gel process. Organic/inorganic hybrid membranes were developed by modifying the surface of the silica-zirconia porous membranes via a gas-phase reaction with trimethylchlorosilane (TMCS) to give a surface that was modified with a monolayer of TMCS. Using nanopermporometry, it was found that the inner surface of membrane pores with diameters larger than several nms were successfully modified with TMCS. TMCS-modified membranes showed approximately the same permeability, L, irrespective of water concentration (10 and 100 ppm) in hexane. In contrast, an unmodified membrane, showed a decrease in L, with increasing water concentration, which was pronounced at low permeation temperatures. This suggests that small amounts of water adsorbed to the inner surface of unmodified silica-zirconia membranes and blocked the permeation of hexane.

  • Structurally composite membranes of titanium oxide and titanium phosphorus oxide for proton conduction at intermediate temperatures

    T Tsuru, Y Yagi, Y Kinoshita, T Yoshioka, M Asada

    Composite membranes of titanium oxide and phosphorus oxide (TiP) were prepared by the sol-gel method and evaluated for use as proton conductive materials at intermediate temperatures. Titanium phosphorus oxide sol solutions were prepared by the hydrolysis of titanium isopropoxide (TTIP) using hydrochloric acid as a catalyst in isopropanol solutions, and the addition of an appropriate amount of phosphoric acid (H3PO4). A new concept for structurally composite membranes is proposed for proton conductive membranes. A composite membrane, Ti/TiP, where the pores of a porous titanium oxide layer are filled with titanium phosphorus oxide, was found to be effective for high electrical conductivity as well as mechanical strength. Electrical conductivities as high as 0.1 and 0.06 S cm(-1) at 100 and 300 degreesC, respectively, under a partial pressure of water of 50 kPa, was achieved for the TV TiP membranes.

    Titania (TiO2) membranes with molecular weight cut-offs controlled at 250, 400, and 2000 were successfully prepared by the sol-gel process. These porous membranes rejected electrolytes based on Donnan exclusion, and the permeate volume flux, based on the electroviscous effect, was pH-dependent, similar to polymeric porous membranes. Moreover, divalent counterions (Ca2+,Mg2+) which were strongly adsorbed by ion-exchange at alkali pH, drastically reduced volume flux, compared with monovalent cations (Ne (+), K+); this tendency was pronounced for porous membranes with smaller pore sizes. The evidence for hydrodynamic resistance by the adsorbed divalent cations was shown based on permeation and zeta potential measurements of mixtures.

    MFI zeolite membranes were prepared by secondary growth on alpha-alumina microfiltration membranes. Colloidal silicalite, the size of which was approximate to100 nm, was used as seed crystals. An MFI membrane, in which the zeolite layer was oriented to the (10 1) plane, showed a n-C4H10, permeance of 1.5 x 10(-5) m(3)(STP)m(-2)s(-1)kPa(-1) and a n-li-C4H10 selectivity of 15 at 150 degreesC. N-2 permeated faster than He at temperatures lower than 150 degreesC, probably because of surface diffusion of the adsorbed N-2 in the Henry regime. After ion-exchanging the MFI zeolite membranes from the Na-type to the H-type, the alkylation of toluene with methanol was carried out. A maximal p-xylene selectivity of 80% was achieved using the H-MFI zeolite membranes at 450-500 degreesC. (C) 2002 Elsevier Science Inc. All rights reserved.

    Titania membranes were prepared by sol-gel processes. Molecular weight cut-offs (MWCO) were successfully controlled in the range from 500 to 1000 with pure water permeabilities of 0.6-1.5 x 10(-11) m(3) m(-2) s(-1) Pa-1. Nanofiltration experiments were carried out for various types of electrolytes (NaCl, Na2SO4, MgCl2 MgSO4) using several membranes having different MWCOs (400, 500, > 1000). Rejection showed the minimum values near the isoelectric point (IEP) which were determined by streaming potential measurements. Larger rejections were obtained for the case where electrolytes having divalent co-ions were nanofiltrated, while low rejection were observed for the case of electrolytes having divalent counterions. On the other hand, permeate volume fluxes were maximized near IEP and the fluxes were almost the same irrespective of types of electrolytes. However, permeate volume fluxes decreased at pH higher than IEP. The dependency was pronounced for the case of divalent counterions and smaller pore diameters, probably because of larger hydrodynamic resistance by ionically-adsorbed counter ions.

    Gas permeation mechanisms through a micropore of a vitreous silica (v-SiO2) membrane were studied using a molecular dynamics (MD) simulation. Virtual v-SiO2 membranes were prepared by the melt-quench methods using the modified Born-Mayer-Huggins pair potential and Stillinger-Waber three-body interactions. The particle-generating non-equilibrium MD technique was employed in order to simulate gas permeation phenomena, where permeating molecules were modeled as Lennard-Jones particles. This simulation method accommodates a change in the number of particles in a unit cell and, hence, an accurate simulation of the steady-state process of permeation can be achieved, The dependencies of permeance on temperature and pressure were discussed. For cylindrical pores of about 5 Angstrom in diameter, the calculated temperature dependencies of the permeance of He-like LJ particles were similar to those predicted by the normal Knudsen permeation mechanism, while, for CO2 permeation, a temperature dependency larger than He and a significant deviation from the Knudsen's could be observed. In the relatively high-temperature region (400-800 K), the simulated permeance of CO2 was nearly independent of the upstream pressure, while at the temperature below 300 K, a pressure dependency of permeance was observed. Simulations of adsorption conducted on the same unit cell yielded a Henry-type isotherm at 400 K and a Langmuir-type isotherm at 260 K. These results indicate that gas-Eke permeation occurred in the higher-temperature region, where the permeation flux is proportional to the pressure drop across the pore. However, at lower temperatures, the transports of molecules as some type of adsorption phase might be dominant in such a small pore. A simple gas permeation model, considering the effect of the pore wall potential field and Langmuir type adsorption within a micropore explained those permeation properties of CO2 well.

    Permeation mechanism of inorganic gases was studied experimentally, and theoretically through microporous silica membranes prepared by the sol-gel method. Inorganic gas permeation was measured using the membranes with subnano pores in diameter. The permeance of He increased with increasing temperature for various cases, while that of CO2, O-2 and N-2 decreased. In particular; the observed temperature dependency, of CO2 was greater than those of other gases. In such small pores, the interaction energy between a permeant molecule and the pore wall call affect gas-permeation properties. A simple gas-permeation model is used considering the effect of the attractive or repulsive pore-wall potential field, which deviates from thc ambient gas phase of the gas molecule concentration (pressure) in a pore. Thc model call explain the experimental gas-permeation properties successfully Potential curves of CO2 and N-2 in a silica pore were also calculated to predict the permeation ratio of CO2/N-2. This model call help understand further the gas-permeation mechanism in micropores.

The concentration of trichloroethylene (TCE) in permeate stream decreased by approximately 5 ppm while TCE permeating porous TiO2 membranes under conditions of blacklight irradiation. In addition, membrane fouling by polyethyleneimine, which caused a decrease in permeate flux, was also found to be reduced by photocatalytic reaction.

    An evaluation of nano-order pore size of membranes was carried out using permporometry, the basic principle of which is based on capillary condensation of vapor and the blocking effect of permeation of a non-condensable gas. A computer-controlled apparatus was constructed, where liquid was injected by a syringe pump and nitrogen was used as a carrier, and was applied to the evaluation of the pore size of ceramic membranes prepared from a silica-zirconia composite. The pore size distribution, based on the Kelvin equation (Kelvin diameter), was evaluated over a range of 0.5-30 nm, using water as a condensable vapor. Vapors used in the present study were water, methanol, ethanol, isopropanol, carbon tetrachloride, and hexane. For the case of relatively large pore sizes (larger than 1 nm, based on water vapor), pore size distribution obtained by water vapor agreed very well with those by carbon tetrachloride and hexane. However, pore sizes measured using alcohols were found to be smaller than those determined by water vapor. For the case of pore sizes smaller than 1 nm, the adsorption layer before capillary condensation appears to play an important role. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.

    Porous membranes having various average pore sizes, ranging from 1 to 4 nm, were prepared from silica-zirconia composite colloidal sols by sol-gel processes, and were used for nanofiltration (NF) experiments in non-aqueous solutions of ethanol and methanol. Silica-zirconia membranes, which were tested in pure alcohol solutions for the first time after the preparation of the membrane, showed a gradual decrease in flux for approximately 100 h and then reached a steady flux. When the feed, after reaching the steady flux with ethanol, was changed to another alcohol, steady flux was attained after only several hours. Ethylene glycol, diethylene glycol, triethylene glycol, polyethylene glycol (PEG) of various molecular weights (PEG400, 600, 1000, and 2000) were nanofiltrated in methanol and ethanol solutions at 50 degreesC. Rejections in non-aqueous solutions increased with applied pressure, which is similar to aqueous solutions, Control of pore size of silica-zirconia membranes showing molecular weight cut-offs in methanol solutions at 300, 600, 1000, and >1000, respectively, was possible by the appropriate choice of colloidal particle sizes. Rejection in methanal solution showed a tendency similar to that in ethanol solution, while rejection in methanol was slightly larger than in ethanol solutions. In addition, rejection in water was much smaller than in methanol solution. For example, the rejection of PEG600 in water and methanol was 0.03 and 0.74, respectively. These results suggest that solvent type plays an important role in determining rejection, ass result of the interaction with solvents and/or membrane surface. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science B.V.

    Catalytic membranes, which have hydrogen permselectivity over other gaseous molecules and catalytic activity for methane steam reforming, were prepared by 2 different procedures and applied to methane steam reforming at 450-500degreesC. Type A catalytic membranes were manufactured by the preparation of a hydrogen separation layer from silica-zirconia colloidal sols, followed by the application of a nickel catalyst coating. Type B catalytic membranes were prepared via the impregnation of a nickel catalyst inside the a-alumina porous substrates, followed by the application of a coating on the hydrogen separation layer. Hydrogen permselectivity over nitrogen was degraded by coating the catalyst layer, as in the Type A membranes, and in addition, methane conversion decreased with time probably because of catalyst sintering or carbon deposition. Type B catalytic membranes showed a steady conversion for a longer period than did Type A, and the permeability ratio of hydrogen to nitrogen was approximately 200; therefore, Type B was found to be the effective route to preparing catalytic membranes. Methane steam reforming through the use of catalytic membranes revealed that methane conversion beyond the equilibrium conversion levels could be achieved either by sweeping the permeate stream or by pressurizing the feed stream at 6 bar and not using sweeping gas.

    An improved condensation model for the estimation of pore-size distribution in the range of nanometers is examined. In the authors' previous paper, the model proved its reliability in computer experiments employing the molecular dynamics technique. The model is tested here in a real experimental system with a MCM-41-like ordered mesoporous silicate, FSM-16. The study includes how to find the adsorbate-solid interaction strength, which is taken into account as an additional contribution for condensation other than the Kelvin effect. The true pore size of the material is separately determined to be 3.2 +/- 0.2 nm by high-resolution transmission electron microscopy observation, and by a "colloidal particle adsorption method". The conventional model for condensation, the Kelvin model, underestimates the pore size of FSM-16 to be 2.5 nn from the nitrogen isotherm. The present model successfully predicts the pore size to be 3.4 nm, and proves its reliability in the real experimental system. The effect of the pore wall's potential on the capillary coexistence relation is further discussed comparing ordered mesoporous silicates and the usual silica materials.

    Inorganic nanofiltration membranes were prepared using silica-zirconia composite sols by the sol-gel method and applied for the permeation experiments of nonaqueous solutions. Pure solvent permeabilities of methanol, ethanol, and l-propanol were measured at temperatures from 25 to 60 degrees C. For membranes having pore sizes as large as 70 nm, the permeation mechanism of alcohols obeys the viscous flow mechanism irrespective of types of alcohols. On the other hand, the permeation mechanism through porous silica-zirconia membranes having pore diameters of 1 to 5 nm was found to be different from the viscous flow mechanism; small molecules showed larger permeabilities than large molecules. Activation energies of solvent permeability were found to be larger for large molecules and for membranes of smaller pore size. (C) 2000 Academic Press.

    We modeled condensation phenomena within cylindrical nanopores as a possible replacement for the Kelvin model that underestimates nanometer order pore sizes. The proposed model follows the simple concept of a continuum assumption similar to that for the Kelvin model. The difference was in the introduction of the contribution of the pore-wall potential and the curvature-dependent surface tension in our model. A molecular dynamics (MD) technique developed by the authors for isotherm determination was employed to test the concept and the model. Several isotherms for Nn-like Lennard-Jones (LJ) particles in a silicate-like cylindrical pore with various diameters from 2 to 4 nm were obtained through MD simulations, and a relation between pore diameter and critical condensation pressure was determined. The present model successfully described the relation to demonstrate its reliability. The validity of the proposed model was examined also from the aspect of the shape of the meniscus and the pressure profile in the condensed phase, and gave fairly good agreement.

    The effect of temperature on nanofiltration performance was examined using three inorganic membranes with a molecular-weight cutoff of approximately 200, 600, and 2, 000, respectively. The inorganic porous membranes were prepared from silica-zirconia colloidal sols and used in nanofiltration experiments for neutral solutes over a temperature range of 20 to 60 degrees C. The rejection of solutes decreased with an increase in temperature for the membranes while the permeate volume flux increased. Three transport coefficients-refection coefficient, solute permeability, and water permeability-were obtained using the Spiegler-Kedem equation, which accounts for the contribution of convection and diffusion to solute flux. As a result, the reflection coefficient corresponding to the fraction of solutes reflected by the membrane in convective flow was almost constant, irrespective of experimental temperature. Solute permeabilities, however, increased with temperature. The dependency was larger for larger solutes and membranes with smaller pore diameters. Therefore, the hindered diffusion of solutes through micropores was indicative of an activated process. Moreover; pure water permeability, after correction for the temperature effect on viscosity, also increased with experimental temperature.

    We propose a simple method for identifying interaction strength between an adsorbate molecule and a solid surface. The interaction strength is necessary for precise evaluation of pore sizes of the nanometer order, in which the conventional Kelvin model fails to describe the condensation phenomena, and for which we proposed an alternative model taking account of the effect of attractive potential from pore walls on the condensation: The model contains a constant to express the interaction strength between an adsorbate and a solid surface, and it should be determined from a standard isotherm. For investigation and verification of the method, standard adsorption isotherms were prepared by the grand canonical Monte Carlo simulations for the system of a Lennard-Jones particle on a homogeneous solid surface. The Frenkel theory was basically applied for this purpose because of its explicit inclusion of the interaction parameter within the equation. The theory shows good agreement with simulation results in a limited range of relative pressures from 0.005 to 0.25, while certain deviations exist in other portions of the isotherm. The result is that only the portion of the standard isotherm with good agreement should be used to evaluate the interaction strength employing the Frenkel theory. Through examinations in systems with various interaction strengths, it is found that the interaction strength is able to be evaluated correctly if the equation is applied to the range of surface coverage from 0.8 to 1.8 in all cases. The interaction constant calculated by this method is proved to have sufficient accuracy for use in characterization of nano-scale pores.

    We developed a new molecular dynamics (MD) scheme, introducing the concept of the potential buffering field through which an adsorbed phase could interact with an imaginary gas phase. This simulation cell allowed us to conduct a MD simulation that allowed a change in the number of molecules to attain equilibrium with given equilibrium pressure, like a grand canonical Monte Carlo simulation. By taking another choice for the setting of the cell, the number of molecules stayed constant but the equilibrium pressure was able to be obtained easily by a new technique of ''particle counting method.'' The thus obtained equilibrium vapor phase pressure agreed with that obtained by Widom's particle insertion method. Some adsorption simulations within slitlike pores of 2 and 3 nm were carried out Adsorption phenomena could be observed from monolayer adsorption on a pore wall under a low relative pressure Co the capillary condensation under a high relative pressure. Thus the adsorption equilibrium relation could be determined. The critical relative pressure for capillary condensation was smaller than that predicted by the modified Kelvin equation. This MD method shall provide much benefit in studying interfaces, which is important for analyzing condensation in pores. (C) 1997 American Institute of Physics.

    A new capillary condensation model for nano-scale pores is proposed. The effect of the pore wall potential on the condensation phenomenon was considered in the model. The critical relative pressure at which the condensation phase is formed can be related to the pore size by the model. The curvature dependency of the surface tension was also taken into account. This is a new model based on hydrostatic analysis, and its feature is non-uniformity of the condensation phase caused by the potential field exerted by the pore walls. We carried out adsorption simulations within slit-like pores in the range of 2 - 4 nm in width by using a Molecular Dynamics (MD) method. In the simulations, equilibrium vapor pressure for an adsorbed state was able to be calculated by counting the number of adsorbate particles which desorbed from the pore and reached a border plane with imaginary vapor phase. We used argon-like Ld particles as the adsorbate and the adsorbent consisted of LJ carbon-like walls. For various pore widths, we simulated the adsorption phenomena to obtain the adsorption equilibrium relation, from the state of the surface adsorption on a pore wall under a low relative pressure to the state of the condensation under a high relative pressure. Consequently, significant discrepancy in the critical relative pressure for capillary condensation from the value predicted by the Kelvin model was reaffirmed, while the proposed model predicted well the critical relative pressure for condensation in nano-scale pores. The validity of the proposed model was examined also from the aspects of the shape of gas-condensate interface and pressure distribution in the condensed phase, and gave fairly good agreement.

  • Transport Properties of Condensable and Non-Condensable Gas Mixtures through Microporous Silica Membranes Studied with Molecular Dynamics Simulation

    Yoshioka Tomohisa, Tanaka Junpei, Tusru Toshinori, Asaeda Masashi

    Non-equilibrium molecular dynamics simulations of condensable vapor permeation and separation of condensable and non-condensable gas mixtures through a sub-nano scale pore were conducted on a virtual amorphous silica membrane which was prepared by the melt-quench procedures. Concerning the permeation properties of ethane-like LJ particle through a pore of 8 &Aring; in diameter, a surface diffusion-like temperature dependency was observed at relatively high temperature region (400-800 K), while around room temperatures, the permeance decreased with decreasing temperature. The permeances of non-condensable nitrogen-like particle, which has smaller affinity with the pore surface than ethane, was smaller than those of ethane and the Knudsen or surface diffusion-like temperature dependency curve could be seen. In simulations of separation for ethane/nitrogen binary mixtures at 260 K, a temperature below the critical temperature (<I>T<SUB>C</SUB></I>) of actual ethane, the concentration dependency of ethane permeance showed an almost flat curve in low concentration (partial pressure) region, and at a higher specific concentration, the permeance largely decreased. The permeances of nitrogen were smaller at any partial pressure conditions compared with those observed in single nitrogen gas permeation simulations. Especially at a large partial pressure of ethane, the permeance of nitrogen became very small. This fact indicates a condensable component that has larger interaction with the pore surface could obstruct the transport of a non-condensable one to decrease its permeance. Above mentioned results suggest that the micropore filling of condensable gases could occur in a micropore at temperatures below <I>T<SUB>C</SUB></I> and at sufficiently high pressures, and this phenomenon would play an important role in determining the separation performance of these gases through a micropore.

  • Gas permeation characteristics and stability of composite silica-metal oxide membranes

    M Asaeda, M Kanezashi, T Yoshioka, T Tsuru

    In order to improve the stability of silica membranes against water (vapor) some metal oxides were added to silica to obtain composite silica-metal oxide membranes by the sol-gel techniques. A Ni-doped silica membrane (Ni/Si=1/2) fired at 500degreesC showed a relatively large permeance of 1.5x 10(-5) [m(3)(STp)/(m(2) skPa)] with selectivity of 350 (H-2/CH4), 4200 (H-2/SF6) at 200degreesC and 100 (CO2/CH4) at 35degreesC. After leaving the membrane in humid air (RH: 60%, 40degreesC) for 70 days, the permeance of H-2 decreased by about 50% but the selectivity was improved to 930 for H-2/CH4. And little change was observed in the activation energy for H-2 permeation, while under the same conditions a silica membrane showed a quite large change in the activation energy from 3.1kJ/mol to 14kJ/mol, There is a possibility that metal oxides added to silica help prevent the densification of silica networks through which hydrogen and helium molecules can permeate.

    逆浸透膜における微量物質(特にニトロソジメチルアミン)の透過現象に対する膜物性の重要性を、膜物性分析を通して評価した結果、スキン層の厚みや空隙径などこれまで重要と思われてきた物性に差がないことが明らかになった。また、微量物質の膜透過を表現する細孔モデルを構築し、膜の透過性能と空隙径を入力値とすることで微量物質の阻止率予測が可能であることを明らかにした。さらに、分子動力学シミュレーションを使い、膜構造内の微量物質の輸送を計算した。結果、3種類のニトロソアミンの拡散速度は分子の大きさに従い、これは実際の膜ろ過試験で得た結果と同じ傾向であることを明らかにした。

    本研究では,シリカあるいはチタニアなどのセラミックスを膜材料として用い,選択的溶解機構に基づく新規な水素分離膜を提案している。まず,シリカ,チタニアおよびリンとの複合酸化物材料を用い,プロトン伝導性薄膜の創製を行ない,このプロトン伝導性に電子伝導性を付与すると,水素分離膜を創製することが可能となると考えられる。本研究では,この新たな水素透過機構に基づく,100-300℃での中温度域で完全水素選択性を示すセラミック膜を創製するために,以下の2種類のゾルゲル法でプロトン伝導膜の創製を行なった。 ・メソポーラスTiO_2/Tipペレット膜の開発 チタンアルコキシドをH_3PO_4触媒を用いて,メソポーラスTiO_2を作製した.従来法TiO_2と比較して比表面積が2〜4倍増加し,TiO_2(H_3PO_4)のP/Ti=0.5では最も高い比表面積262m^2/gを示した。このメソポーラスチタニアに,チタンリンゾル(TiP)をコーティングすることで,電気伝導率は200℃,水蒸気3kPa下においても高い電気伝導率14mS/cmを示すことを見出した。 ・TiO_2-P_2O_5薄膜の開発 ゾル調製時にP源としてP_2O_5(五酸化二リン)とTBOT(テトラブチルオルトチタネート)を用い,新規チタン-リン膜の作製を行い,薄膜としてプロトン伝導特性や特性評価を行った。この手法では,1stepで香典同物質の創製の可能性がある。TiO_2-P_2O_5薄膜は湿度増加と共に伝導率が一次関数的に増加し,TiO_2(P_2O_5)[P/Ti=2]は,100℃,80%RH下において最も高い伝導率180mS/cmを示した.さらにTiO_2(P_2O_5)[P/Ti=9]は,160℃,100%RH下で3S/cmとNafion膜と比較して約30倍の性能を示すことを明らかにした。

    本年度は,アモルファスシリカ膜における気体透過現象を分子動力学シミュレーションにより再現することを目的として,気体透過特性におよぼす膜構成原子の動特性と膜細孔径分布の影響に着目して,以下のとおり研究を実施した. 1.シリカポリマーネットワーク膜モデルの妥当性評価とポテンシャルパラメータの最適化 分子の膜透過という動特性が分子シミュレーションで再現できているかが重要であり,これは,膜を構成する分子のポテンシャル関数およびポテンシャルパラメータをどのように設定するかに大きく左右される.アモルファスシリカ構造を規定する3体ポテンシャルパラメータの値を変化させて動径分布関数およびシリカ膜を構成する酸素原子の平均二乗変位を計算した結果,原子の平衡位置,すなわちアモルファス構造を維持したままでシリカネットワークの動きを制御することが可能であることがわかった.また気体透過速度の温度依存性より得られる活性化エネルギーは膜構成原子の動きを抑制した場合に大きくなった. 2.多元的細孔膜モデルの構築と膜透過シミュレータとしての妥当性評価 シリカネットワーク相の細孔径分布は原子密度に依存し,密度の増加にともなって平均細孔径は減少したが,密度1.8g/ml以上においては粒界的な細孔は消失し,He透過速度の温度依存性はその密度を境としてKnudsen的な透過から活性化的な傾向へと変化した.1.8g/mlの膜モデルでは実在CO_2分離膜における透過速度と近い結果が得られたが,H_2分離膜に比べて活性化エネルギーは小さかったことから,H_2分離膜のシリカネットワーク相はより高密度であると考えられる.粒子間細孔モデルを用いたCO_2透過シミュレーション結果と密度1.8g/ml膜モデルにおけるHe透過速度の結果を組み合わせて実在CO_2分離膜における気体透過速度データにフィッティングしたところ,およそ18nm四方に1個の割合で粒子間細孔が存在することが示唆され,これは,実在シリカ膜作製時に使用したコロイド粒子サイズを考慮すると妥当な結果であった.

    新規なプロトン伝導材料としてのナノ構造を制御した無機材料を提案し,そのプロトン伝導特性を明らかとするとともに,膜電極接合体(MEA:Membrane-Electrode Assembly)を創製し燃料電池発電特性を明らかとすることを研究目的とし,以下を明らかとした。 (1)ナノ構造制御によるプロトン伝導性薄膜の創製 ・酸化チタンを用いて数nmの細孔を有するナノ多孔性基材(Ti)を作製し,その細孔中に高プロトン伝導材料であるチタンリン複合酸化物(Tip)を充填することで,ナノ構造制御を制御したセラミック薄膜(Ti/TiP)を創製した。150℃,水蒸気圧2.5kPa(0.5RH%)では,無加湿時に比べ3桁も大きい10^<-2>S/cmという高い値を示した。これは,低水蒸気圧においても膜細孔表面に吸着した水分子によりプロトンの解離が促進され,水分子を介してプロトンがホッピング移動したためと考えられる。 (2)MEAの構築と燃料電池発電特性 プロトン伝導材料であるTi/Tipを用いて,電子伝導性を有するカーボンペーパー上に製膜したMEA-1,およびカーボンペーパー上にカーボン粒子からなる中間層を形成した後に製膜したMEA-2を作製し,中温域で使用可能な無機材料のMEAを構築した。 MEA-1におけるi-V特性は,開放起電力は160mV,最大電力密度は0.076mW/cm^2を示した。プロトン輸率は約0.8を示し,カーボンペーパーを用いてMEAを構築し,発電することが可能であることが明らかとなった。MEA-2は開放起電力110mV,最大電力密度0.48mW/cm^2を示した。MEA-1と比較して,最大電力密度は約6倍向上した。MEA-2においては,カーボンペーパー上に,カーボン粒子とポリイミドからなる中間層を形成しているために,Ti/Tip膜の薄膜化が可能であり,膜抵抗の低減につながり,電力密度が上昇したと考えられる。しかしながら,起電力法によるプロトン輸率が約0.2を示したことから,原料ガスがクロスオーバーしたために,低い開放起電力を示したと考えられる。今後,プロトン輸率の高いMEAを作製することで,さらなる性能の向上が期待される。

    1.凝縮性ガス透過シミュレーションによるマイクロ孔充填・透過機構の検討 非平衡分子動力学法を用いて凝縮性ガス(エタン)の透過シミュレーションを行ったところ,マイクロ孔充填相の形成による透過速度の低下が見られ,その際の圧力は細孔径が大きい方が高くなった.また,透過分子の蒸発エネルギーと吸着エネルギーを用いてマイクロ孔充填相の移動モデルを構築し,細孔径分布を考慮して数値シミュレーションを行ったところ,透過分子と膜細孔表面との相互作用および細孔径分布に由来する透過速度の減少傾向が良好に再現され,分子充填相透過現象を利用したサブナノ細孔径分布評価の理論的妥当性が示された. 2.凝縮性ガスの膜材料表面との相互作用エネルギーの評価 膜材料のシリカコロイドゾルを乾燥させ,1000℃で焼成して作成した非多孔性粉体試料における標準凝縮性ガス(エタン,プロパン,ブタン)の吸着等温線を測定し,Frenkel吸着理論を用いて各ガスとシリカ材料との相互作用パラメータを求めた.シリンダー状の細孔形状を仮定することにより,非多孔性固体表面との相互作用パラメータを基準として,細孔内ポテンシャル場の細孔径依存性を得る手法を確立した. 3.膜細孔径分布評価法の妥当性の検討 平均細孔径が異なる3種類の実在多孔性シリカ膜において,標準凝縮性ガスの透過速度の圧力依存性を測定した.標準凝縮性ガスの細孔内ポテンシャルと細孔径の関係および吸着ポテンシャル理論を用いて,透過速度の圧力依存性を透過速度と細孔径の関係に換算することにより,ガス透過に有効な細孔径分布を推算可能であった.どの凝縮性ガスを標準ガスとして用いてもそれぞれの膜について同様な細孔径分布が得られ,また,透過速度の分子サイズ依存性から予測された細孔径との定量的な一致も見られ,マイクロ孔充填相透過モデルを利用したサブナノ膜細孔径分布評価法の妥当性が示唆された.

    アモルファス状態のシリカやチタニアなど酸化物はその分子構造がネットワーク構造を有し,ヘリウムや水素分子のみが透過可能,あるいは,ヘリウムや水素分子すら透過困難な微小な細孔を形成する。このネットワークにはsiOH基あるいはTiOH基が存在し,これらのOH基のHは水素イオンとして拡散移動することが可能であり,高いプロトン伝導性を示すことが示されている。本研究では,シリカあるいはチタニアを用い,プロトン伝導性薄膜の創製を行うことを研究目的としている。プロトン伝導性が発現することが明らかとなれば,プロトン伝導性を有するセラミックスと白金などの電子伝導性材料をナノサイズで並列複合化することで,新規な水素分離膜の創製が可能になると考えられる。 昨年度は,プロトン伝導性薄膜の創製に関する研究を行ない,チタンテトライソプロポキシド(TTIP)とリン酸を出発原料とするチタンリン複合酸化物は,高いプロトン伝導性を有することを明らかとした。 今年度は,ゾルゲル法によりチタンリン複合酸化物をスライドガラス,SUS管,Anodisc,カーボンシート上に製膜する手法を確立した。さらに,表面抵抗および体積抵抗の測定により,温度50-300℃,湿度0-10%におけるプロトン伝導率の評価を行ない,300℃,水蒸気圧50kPaにおいても0.01S/cm程度の高い値を示すこと,150℃では水蒸気が5kPa程度(相対湿度で約1%)で10^<-1>S/cm程度に増加することも明らかとした。高温水蒸気下では,電気伝導率は徐々に低下することが示され,EDX測定より膜中のリンが減少していることが明らかとなった。そこで,製膜直後のチタンリン複合酸化物を水中へ浸漬することによって,膜の安定性が向上することを見出した。

    膜型反応器とは,膜分離と触媒反応を一つのシステムにまとめたものである。本研究では,触媒層と分離膜が一体化された触媒膜に焦点を絞り,膜反応特性の評価およびモデル化を行うことを研究目的とする。具体的には,触媒膜の構造として,分離層自体が触媒活性を有するType-a,および,触媒層と分離層が層状に存在するType-bについて,MFIゼオライト膜(Typera),および,ゾルゲル法によりシリカ/ジルコニア系多孔性膜を製膜後(あるいは前)に触媒を含浸担持した触媒膜(Type-k)の2種類を開発した。 Type-aに関しては,本年度は昨年度に引き続きZSM-5膜を製膜し、トルエンのアルキル化反応に応用した。Na-ZSM-5膜をNH_4Clでイオン交換しH-ZSM-5膜とし,トルエンのメチル化の触媒膜型反応を行った.Si/Al=50膜を用い,400〜500℃において,反応温度が高くなるに従いトルエンの初期反応率は増加し,p-キシレン選択率は約80%と高い値を示した.反応生成物のo-/m-/p-キシレン組成は熱力平衡組成(o-/m-/p-=24/52/24)を超えるp-キシレン選択性を示した。また,Permeate側のトルエン反応率はretentate側よりも常に高いこと,滞留時間に関わらずほぼ一定のp-キシレン選択性を示したことから,ZSM-5触媒膜の有用性が示されたと考えられる。 Type-bの触媒膜として,硝酸ニッケルに含浸し,乾燥・焼成することで,まず,ニッケル担持多孔質支持体を作製し,その上に水素分離機能を有するシリカ膜を製膜した。500℃,メタン/水蒸気比3でのメタン水蒸気改質の膜型反応に適用した。水素を選択的に引き抜くことで,平衡を超えた反応率を得ることが可能であることを示した。また,膜型反応シミュレーションモデルを構築し,実験値とよく一致することを明らかとした。さらに,メタン改質による水素製造の膜型反応器は,2種類の無次元数,Permeation数とDamkohler数で統一的に表せることをシミュレーションより明らかとした。

    酸化チタンはバンドギャップ以上の紫外光で,結晶表面に正孔と呼ばれる活性種と溶液中に酸化能の高いOHラジカルが生成し,直接または間接的に有機物を分解することが知られている。光触媒反応は,酸化チタン粒子を液中に懸濁させる方法や,無孔性基材上へのコーティング膜などとして研究されているが,本研究では,多孔性チタニア膜を作製し,透過を伴う光触媒膜型反応器を提案する。このシステムでは,ナノ細孔内に対流により輸送される有機物は,細孔内に高濃度に存在するOHラジカルにより分解・除去されると考えられる。有機物の分子量と膜細孔径に応じて,細孔を透過しながら低分子溶質を分解し,浄化された透過液を得ることが期待できる。 具体的には,平均細孔径1.5および5nmの貫通孔を有するチタニア膜をゾルゲル法で作製し,有機物質(トリクロロエチレン,メチレンブルー)の光触媒反応に用いた。濃度1ppmのトリクロロエチレン水溶液を供給した場合,0.05ppm以下の膜透過液を得ることができ,分解率は95%以上にも達することを明らかとした。膜触媒特性に与える因子の検討を行った結果,圧力の増加にともない,膜透過液濃度は増加,すなわち,分解率は低下した。これは,細孔内滞留時間の低下によると考えられる。また,攪拌数および供給液濃度の増大に伴い,分解率は低下する傾向を示した。 さらに,多孔性膜を膜表面での反応部分と透過しながら分解する細孔部分に分割することで,ナノ細孔透過型光触媒反応のモデル化を行なった。提案したモデルは,トリクロロエチレンの分解率の濃度依存性,圧力依存性,攪拌数依存性を比較的良く表現できることを明らかとした。

    1.透過相互作用エネルギーの評価 本研究では,細孔壁ポテンシャル場によりボルツマン分布則に従ってバルク気相とは密度が異なるガス状分子の細孔内ガス透過モデルを提案した.昨年度の研究により,その妥当性が示された微細孔内ガス透過モデルを用いて,多孔性シリカ膜における数種類のガスの透過速度の温度依存性より透過に有効な細孔表面と透過ガス分子との間に働く引力相互作用を算出すると,二酸化炭素分子の場合で数千から十数J/mol,窒素,アルゴン,酸素分子の場合で数百から数千J/molという値が得られた.膜材料として用いたシリカコロイドから作成した粉体試料において,二酸化炭素および窒素の吸着量を測定すると,同一平衡圧力下において,二酸化炭素の吸着量の方が窒素の吸着量に較べて数倍程度大きく,多孔性シリカ膜におけるガス透過実験から得られた相互作用との定性的傾向の一致が見られた.また,分子動力学法を用いた微細孔内のガス透過シミュレーションにおいても,透過速度から得られた細孔内ポテンシャル場の深さと,実際に設定したポテンシャルパラメータから算出されるポテンシャル場の大きさが定量的に一致し,透過モデルによる相互作用エネルギー評価法の妥当性が示された. 2.平均有効膜細孔径評価法の妥当性の検討 分子種と細孔径に依存する相互作用エネルギーの大きさから細孔径を直接的に評価することは困難であった.しかし,膜細孔内ポテンシャル場を考慮したガス透過モデル式は,細孔構造に由来するパラメータC_pを含み,その値と透過ガス分子径との間に相関関係があることが見いだされた.即ち,ガス透過速度の温度依存性に透過モデル式をフィッティングすることにより得られたC_pの値と透過分子径の関係より,透過に有効な平均細孔径の値を具体的に求めることができた.その結果を,既存の細孔径評価法である,分子プローブ法やナノパームポロメトリによる評価値と比較すると,5〜15Åの平均細孔径を有する複数の膜において良好な一致が見られた.これより,ガス分離に有効と考えられるミクロ孔を有する多孔性シリカ膜において,ガス透過に有効な平均細孔径を,ガス透過実験によりin-situでかつ簡便に評価可能であることが示された.

    本研究は,ゾルゲル法により分子サイズの細孔径を有する多孔性セラミック膜を作製し,溶媒純成分の透透過特性を明らかにすること,および,混合物の分離特性を明らかとすることを目的とする。これまでに,シリガジルコニアコロイドを用いて,1〜100nmの細孔径を有する多孔性セラミック膜を作製し,種々の純溶媒の透過機構について検討を加えた。その結果,細孔中の透過機構は,細孔径の大きな場合はHagen-Poiseuille式に従う粘性流れが支配的であるが,細孔径が小さくなるにつれて,膜細孔径と溶媒分子径による立体障害効果(サイズ効果)および膜表面と溶媒分子の親和性が透過機構に寄与することを明らかとした。 さらに,溶媒混合物の逆浸透分離に関しては,エタノール中の種々の分子量物質とする逆浸透分離の検討を行った。透過溶質として,飽和炭化水素(n-ヘキサン(C_6H_<14>,分子量86),n-デカン(C_<10>H_<22>,分子量142),n-テトラデカン(C_<14>H_<30>,分子量198))),および,アルコール成分(n-ヘキサノール(C_6H_<13>OH,分子量102,n-オクタノール(C_8H_<17>OH,分子量130),n-デカノール(C_<10>H_<21>OH,分子量158))を用いた。溶質細孔径1nm程度から分離性を発現し,3MPa,60℃における阻止率が分子量にもよるが0.4〜0.8であり,無機多孔性膜によって有機溶媒の逆浸透分離が可能であることを明らかとした。透過機構の検討を行った結果,溶質の微細孔内の拡散係数は,細孔内の溶媒粘度(エタノール)の影響を大きく受けることが示唆された。

    本研究は、水素分離膜を組み込んだメタンの水蒸気改質反応による水素製造プロセスの開発を目的とする。昨年度,ゾルゲル法よりシリカ-ジルコニア多孔性膜の作製を行ない,高透過性・高選択性を示す水素分離膜の作製が可能であること,高温水蒸気(500〜570℃,水蒸気分圧0.25〜0.5bar)存在下でシリカ-ジルコニア膜の焼結が進行し,経時的に気体透過係数は徐々に減少することを明らかにした。そこで今年度は,製膜段階においてあらかじめ水蒸気中で焼成することで,透過実験の際に水蒸気中でも安定な多孔性膜を得ることが可能となった。 水素分離膜の表面にニッケルを担持焼成することで薄膜触媒を製膜し,500℃のメタンの水蒸気改質反応に用いた。ニッケルのみを担持した場合反応活性が経時的に低下し,触媒上への炭素析出によると考えられた。種々のアルカリ金属を検討したところ,硝酸カルシウムが最も効果的であることを見出した。水蒸気改質温度を450℃では,反応率は長時間に渡って安定した値を示したが,500℃では反応率は徐々に低下した。これは高温下では,触媒であるニッケルのシンタリングが起こったためと考えられる。このシンタリングには,種々のアルカリ金属を担持しても効果的ではなかった。 水素引き抜きを行わない場合,450℃で反応率は約45%であった。膜2次側にスイ-プガスを流し水素を選択的に引き抜くことで,反応率は最高75%にも達し,平衡転化率65%を越える結果をえ,膜型反応器とする有意性を明らかとした。

    ゾル-ゲル法により逆浸透膜と限外濾過膜の中間の分画分子量を有する無機ナノ濾過膜(分画分子量200〜1000)を開発し,無機材料の耐溶剤性を生かした有機溶媒中の低・中分子量物質のナノ濾過分離を行うことを研究目的とする。 まず,シリカ-ジルコニアコロイドゾルの調整条件の検討を行い,5〜100nmの範囲で粒径のそろったゾルの調整方法を確立した。多孔質α-アルミナ管(孔径1μm)を支持管とし,種々の粒径のコロイドゾルを段階的にホットコーティングし,乾燥・焼成することで分離機能性を有するセラミック薄膜の製膜を行なった。 溶媒として種々の分子サイズのアルコール(メタノール,エタノール,プロパノール,ブタノール)を選定し,種々の細孔径(1, 2, 3, 8, 70nm)のシリカ-ジルコニア膜の溶媒単成分の透過実験を20〜60℃の範囲で行った。細孔径70nmの膜の透過流速は,粘度の逆数に対して直線となる粘性流れを示したのに対して,1〜8nmの膜は直線とはならず,粘性流れに従わないことを明らかとした。また,溶媒分子径が大きなほど,細孔径が小さくなるなど,溶媒透過の活性化エネルギーは増加したが,これは細孔との相互作用(分子ふるい性,吸着など)に依存していると考えられる。 低・中分子量物質のモデル溶質として,分子量200〜2000のポリエチレングリコールを用い,メタノール溶媒中での透過実験を行った。細孔径1, 2, 3nmの膜の分画分子量は300, 600, 1000であり,有機溶媒ナノ濾過膜の開発に成功した。また,2nmの膜を用い,エタノールおよびメタノール中での溶質阻止性を検討した結果,大きくは阻止率は変わらないものの,溶媒種に依存していることが示唆された。

    本研究の目的は,高温下で安定な水素分離膜を作製し,水の熱化学分解反応を利用した水素製造プロセスであるUT3サイクルへの応用することである。UT3サイクルでは,反応物であるH_2-H_2-HBr混合系から,生成物である水素を300-500℃で効率的に分離精製する必要がある。したがって,分離対象には大量の水蒸気および酸であるHBrが存在するため,耐酸性に優れると考えられるシリカを膜材料として選定した。 種々のシリカ膜を用いてH_2-H_2O-HBr(モル比H_2=70-75%,HBr=1-2%)混合蒸気の分離実験を500℃で行った。H_2が優先透過し,H_2/HBrの分離係数は約100-500を示し,H_2/H_2Oは3-25程度の値を示した。透過係数の順序は,ヘリウム>水素>水>窒素>臭化水素であり,分子サイズに基づく分子ふるいによる分離性が示唆される。温度依存性を検討したところ,ヘリウム,水素単成分は活性化拡散を示し,単成分水素の透過係数は,H_2-H_2O-HBr混合気体での透過係数とよく一致した。水蒸気,および,臭化水素の透過係数の温度依存性は小さかった。また,混合蒸気の分離実験後に純成分気体の透過係数の測定を行ったところ,混合蒸気透過実験前後とほとんど変化しておらず,シリカ膜は酸に対して安定していることが示唆される。 水素/臭化水素透過係数比は水素/窒素透過係数比と強く相関しており,水素/水蒸気透過係数比はヘリウム/水素透過係数比と比較的よい相関を示していた。動的分子径がH_2=2.89,H_2O=2.65,HBr=3.5,N_2=3.64Åであり,HBrとN_2の分子サイズは比較的近接していることから,分離挙動は良い相関を示したと考えられる。臭化水素と窒素は,膜に残存する比較的大きな細孔やピンホール透過し,水蒸気,水素,ヘリウムは微細孔を膜透過していると考えられる。従って,より高選択の水素分離膜を開発するためには,ピンホールの少ない,微細な細孔とする必要があることが明らかとした。
