Silica membranes

Development of silica membranes through the counter-diffusion chemical vapor deposition

We are developing silica membranes for gas separation that are prepared by counter-diffusion chemical vapor deposition(CVD). This approach allows high-quality silica membranes to be obtained with high reproducibility. Membrane reactors have been also developed to investigate the practical use of the silica membranes produced by counter-diffusion CVD.
