Project Title
Propane Dehydrogenation and Membrane Separation

Project Description
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.
