Research Assistant September 2007 - Current
• Hydrogen production and separation from steam reforming reactions of methanol for Fuel Cell Applications. A
complete experimental setup has been built to study the reforming reactions in tubular and membrane reactors
respectively with an inline gas chromatography system to analyze the reaction product.
• Preparation of Pd-membrane to separate hydrogen from a mixture of gases. In the membrane reactor simultaneous
production and separation of hydrogen is done. The Pd-membrane has been fabricated in the form of tube and disk using
the method developed by our group Surfactant Induced Electroless Plating (Patent application pending).
• The catalysts used in the steam reforming reaction are bi-metallic and tri-metallic catalysts supported on mesoporous
silica. The catalysts have been synthesized using one pot synthesis technique.
• Design and fabrication of Micro-mixer (chip) to study the precipitation and mixing of different drugs.
