This book aims at illustrating several examples of different membrane compositions ranging from inorganic, polymeric, metallic, metal organic framework, and composite which have been successfully deployed to separate industrially relevant gas mixtures including hydrogen, nitrogen, methane, carbon dioxide, olefins/parafins among others. Each book chapter highlights some of the current and key fundamental and technological challenges for these membranes that must be overcome in order to envision its application at industrial level.

  • Mixed Matrix Membranes for Gas Separation Applications (Maria Carreon, Ganpat Dahe, Jie Feng and Surendar R Venna)
  • Ceramic-Supported Organic Composite Membranes for Gas Separation (Gongping Liu and Wanqin Jin)
  • Molecular Modeling of MOF Membranes for Gas Separations (Ilknur Erucar and Seda Keskin)
  • Membrane Processes for N2–CH4 Separation (Shiguang Li, Zhaowang Zong, Miao Yu and Moises A Carreon)
  • Polymer Blend Membranes for Gas Separations (Charles J Holt, Juan P Vizuet, Inga H Musselman, Kenneth J Balkus Jr and John P Ferraris)
  • Manipulating Polyimide Nanostructures via Cross-linking for Membrane Gas Separation (Lingxiang Zhu, Maryam Omidvar and Haiqing Lin)
  • Dense Inorganic Membranes for Hydrogen Separation (Sean-Thomas B Lundin, Neil S Patki, Thomas F Fuerst, Sandrine Ricote, Colin A Wolden and J Douglas Way)
