Abstract: This thesis focuses on the three-stages development of catalytic hollow fiber membrane reactor for coupled hydrogen production and purification via catalytic decomposition of methane, including: (1) development of lanthanum nickelate-based perovskite and its application in catalytic decomposition of methane to hydrogen and carbon nanomaterials; (2) development of inorganic hollow fiber and its application as a porous support of palladium-based membranes; (3) development of palladium-silver alloy membrane and its application in high temperature hydrogen separation; and (4) development of novel catalytic hollow fiber membrane reactor which ¿catalytic reaction¿ for hydrogen production and ¿separation process¿ for isolating hydrogen from the residual gases simultaneously take place in the same device. By using these membrane reactors, hydrogen of high purity (up to 99%) can be directly obtained. Furthermore, the continuous removal of hydrogen from the reaction zone can greatly enhance the efficiency of methane decomposition by shifting the reaction equilibrium toward the product side.
