This is the first book to focus in such detail on such topics, collating the literature hitherto scattered amongst various journals and patent offices. The resulting ready reference represents a welcome overview demonstrating the potential impact of this emerging technology for advanced chemical processing. As such, the text addresses the evolution of nonporous inorganic membrane technology for both hydrogen and oxygen transport membranes and offers strategies for their fabrication as well as their subsequent incorporation into catalytic membrane reactors.
