Abstract / Full Text

Attention is focused on the development and investigation of materials for microtubular (MT) hydrogen-selective membranes. MT supports based on NiO–Al2O3 and NiO–YSZ composites are prepared; the structure and morphology of MT supports before and after their reduction are studied by the methods of X-ray diffraction and (XRD) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM); the optimal parameters for the reduction are selected. The density of MT supports is studied as well as the microhardness of MT supports based Ni–YSZ. For the first time, the gastight nickel layer is deposited on the MT support surface by the dip-coating method.
