Study and Preparation of Electrocatalytic Ceramic Membrane Electrode
The novel electrochemical membrane reactor for wastewater treatment was designed and introduced. As the key part of the electromembrane reactor, the tubular membrane electrode was prepared and researched. The tubular inorganic ceramic membrane was endowed with electroconductivity by the deposition of pyrolytic carbon from propylene by chemical vapor deposition. The electrocatalytic property of the membrane electrode was realized through dip-coating with chloroplatinic acid solution, drying and hydrogen reduction in order that the electrocatalyst of reduced platinum can be supported. The SEM characterization and water flux test of the membrane electrode show that membrane separation and electrocatalysis can be integrated together.
