This reference book addresses the evolution of materials for both oxygen and hydrogen transport membranes and offers strategies for their fabrication as well as their subsequent incorporation into catalytic membrane reactors. Other chapters deal with, e.g., engineering design and scale-up issues, strategies for preparation of supported thin-film membranes, or interfacial kinetic and mass transfer issues. A must for materials scientists, chemists, chemical engineers and electrochemists interested in advanced chemical processing.

Author Biography - Anthony F. Sammells
Anthony F. Sammells received his B.S. in Chemistry from the University of London. After working as a technical supervisor for the Crown Zellerback Co. in Portland, Oregon he obtained his Ph.D. in inorganic chemistry (electrochemistry) from the University of California at Santa Barbara. After this, he was developmental engineer at Information Magnetics in Santa Barbara, California, until he moved to the Energy Research Division of Gould Laboratories, St. Paul, Minnesota. After an employment in the MTS Atomics International Division of Rockwell International, Canoga Park, California, he was Assistant Director of Solar and Electrochemistry Research at the Institute of Gas Technology, Chicago, Illinois. Today Dr. Sammells has responsibility for directing research at Eltron Research Inc. in Boulder, Colorado. He is a member of the American Chemical Society, the Electrochemical Society and Sigma Xi. He has over one hundred publications and over fifty patents. Michael V. Mundschau studied chemistry at the University of Wisconsin. His Ph.D studies were in catalysis and surface science at the Laboratory for Surface Studies. Studies continued on the fundamentals of thin-film growth using low-energy electron microscopy (LEEM) and photoelectron emission microscopy (PEEM) as an Alexander von Humboldt fellow at the Institute of Physics in Clausthal-Zellerfeld, Germany. He continued studies of catalytic reactions and reaction-diffusion fronts at the Fritz-Haber-Institute in Berlin, before returning to the United States for a teaching position at Bowling Green State University, where surface studies using PEEM were continued. He also spent time at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign studying buried interfaces and thin-film growth using LEEM. He has been working at Eltron Research Inc. to develop membrane catalysts and catalyst deposition techniques for oxygen and hydrogen transport membranes. Michael Mundschau is the author of over 45 scientific papers, and has presented his work as invited speaker at over 60 conferences and seminars around the world.
