Abstract

We report here on our thermal and hydrothermal investigations comparing mesoporous γ-Al 2O 3 membrane with single and double dopant membranes prepared by the sol-gel method. Improvements in the hydrothermal stability of mesoporous γ-Al 2O 3 by transition (Ga 3+) or rare-earth (La 3+) cations are discussed, along with the effectiveness of double dopant (Ga 3+- La 3+). The amounts of Ga 2O 3 oxide used varied between 0.0 and 30 mol% and those of La 2O 3 between 6 and 15 mol%. The thermal and hydrothermal (up to 75% steam) stability of nine types of membranes fabricated on an asymmetric porous α-Al 2O 3 support by means of a dip-coating process was characterized by H 2 gas permeation at 500°C. By conducting tests with wide variations in dopant concentrations, material characterizations, and gas permeance performance, we have been able to optimize the key parameters for hydrothermally stable systems.
