Abstract

The porosity (i.e., pore volume, pore size, and surface area) of ceramic materials prepared by sol-gel processing depends on the size and structure of primary particles or polymers formed by condensation reactions, the organization of these structures, often by aggregation, to form a gel, and the collapse of the gel by drying. This paper reviews these ideas in the context of the formation of thin films suitable for inorganic membranes and introduces a number of specific strategies designed to control pore sizes in the range appropriate for gas separation: (1) aggregation of fractals; (2) management of capillary pressure, (3) control of condensation rate, and (4) the use of organic or microporous templates in composite thin film structures. These strategies are contrasted with the more traditional particle packing approach to preparing controlled porosity materials.
