Title: Tunable composite membranes for gas separations. Quarterly progress report, November 1996--January 1997

Abstract

Continued work on the development of composite polymeric membranes for gas separations was conducted. Poly(thiophenes) substituted at the 3-position with esters and ethers were synthesized, cast into membranes and studied with respect to their permeabilities and permselectivities toward N{sub 2}, O{sub 2}, CO{sub 2} and CH{sub 4}. Inorganic fillers with semiconductive properties are being incorporated into composite membranes to facilitate electrochemical modification of the separation properties. Target separations of importance to the coal and energy fields include N{sub 2}/O{sub 2}, H{sub 2}S/syngas, and CO{sub 2}/CH{sub 4}.
