Abstract
A silicon micromonolith of 7 mm diameter and 0.2 mm length containing 1.5 million regular channels with a diameter of 3.3 µm was used for obtaining hydrogen through ethanol or bio-ethanol steam reforming (ESR) and oxidative steam reforming (OSR). The microchannels were coated with RhPd/CeO2 catalyst by a two-step method. First a CeO2 layer of ca. 100 nm thickness was deposited from cerium methoxyethoxide over a SiO2 layer, which was previously grown over the silicon microchannels by oxidation. ...
