Abstract

This work investigates the hydrogenation of methylenecyclohexane using catalytic membrane reactors. Flat polymeric (PVDF) and tubular ceramic (γ-Al2O3) membranes were prepared and the hydrogenation catalyst, palladium, was deposited into their porous structure. Characterisations were carried out on the membrane morphology and on the deposited catalyst. Preliminary data on their reactivity are reported.
