Electrochemical promotion of a Pt catalyst supported on La0.6Sr0.4Co0.2Fe0.8O3-delta hollow fibre membranes

Lookup NU author(s): Dr Danai Poulidi, Dr Maria Rivas, Professor Ian Metcalfe



The use of wireless electrochemical promotion of catalysis (EPOC) of a Pt catalyst supported on a mixed ionic electronic conducting hollow fibre membranes is investigated. This reactor configuration offers high surface areas per unit volume and is ideally suited for scaled-up applications. The MIEC membrane used is the La0.6Sr0.4Co0.2Fe0.8O3 perovskite (LSCF) with a Pt catalyst film deposited on the outer surface of the LSCF membrane. Experimental results showed that after initial catalyst deactivation (in the absence of an oxygen chemical potential difference across the membrane) the catalytic rate can be enhanced by using an oxygen sweep and wireless EPOC can be used for the in situ regeneration of a deactivated catalyst.
