2010-006 Zeolitic Imidazolate Frameworks for Kinetic Separation of Propane and Propene

Details

Project Title2010-006 Zeolitic Imidazolate Frameworks for Kinetic Separation of Propane and Propene
Track Code2010-006
Short DescriptionNone
Abstract

The separation of propane and propene by cryogenic distillation is one of the most energy-and cost-intensive industrial separation processes. Prof. Jing Li and her research group at Rutgers University have discovered an alternative adsorption-based kinetic separation of propene and propane. They demonstrate, for the first time, that zeolite-like microporous metal organic frameworks (MMOFs) are capable of separating these two hydrocarbon species based on the significant difference in their diffusion rates (125:1).
