Abstract

In this work, a catalytic membrane reactor for the direct epoxidation of propene oxide is developed. The titania and silica membranes synthesis method from an alcoxide precursor, TiO2 nano-particle powder and SiO2 colloidal solution is described. Stainless steel is used as a support for the intermediate ceramic layers. In order to obtain thin and crack-free membranes different parameters were optimized, such as drying conditions, calcination temperature, precursor concentration and viscosity of solution. The as-developed membranes were tested in a Wicke-Kallenbach cell under different operating conditions (temperature and pressure).
