Propane Dehydrogenation and Membrane Separation
With sponsorship of Dow Chemical Company, the project aims at revealing catalytic behavior of propane dehydrogenation over mixed metal oxides, as well as zeolite-supported transition metal catalyst. The project will also focus on separation of produced mixed gas through membrane reactor. The work will be in collaboration with Prof. Sholl and Nair’s group.
