Abstract: Implanting the desired porous architectures in inorganic media tailored for different separation purposes through molecular level designing and fabrication controlling will dramatically elevate the performance of current membrane technology. The framed chemical and thermal stability of inorganic materials propel them to be one of the most exciting classes of advanced material in recent times. This research project explore the idea of utilizing molecular shaping forces released from polymerization or from controlled thermal degradation to fabricate macro- and micro-channels in inorganic membranes, capable of deploying as a filter, catalyst support or gas separation. The first study investigate an in-situ pore forming process where the foundation of the pore network in ceramic is laid down through the in-situ generation of polymeric porogen in the green article. The second study focus on the design of processing technique to explore new class of precursor for carbon membrane, namely conducting polymer.
