Structured Catalytic Reactors: Monoliths and Membranes

Qian, X., University of Arkansas
Chen, D., Lamar University

Structured catalytic reactors have been extensively used for chemical conversions, multi-phase flows, heat management, catalytic combustion, waste control, automotive emission control, high throughput reactors, and others. The reactors may also apply membranes for controlled addition/removal of reactants/products or storage of particles. There is a growing need to extend our conventional catalyst and reaction engineering knowledgebase to this reactor category to have better understanding of flow contacting, multi-species transports, and detailed reaction kinetics and their interactions, to have improved understanding of monolith structure impact and materials (washcoat) influence on reactor performance. The submissions of research papers on recent developments in modeling and experimental methodology as well as in application of structured catalytic reactors are encouraged.
