Abstract
Macroporous silicon with millions of parallel microchannels per square centimeter can be used as a micromonolithic support for high-speed catalysis in miniaturized systems, opening a new and exciting field of research and application. We used macroporous silicon membranes with >106 parallel microchannels with a diameter of 3.3 µm and depth/width ratio >60 as microreactors for the generation of hydrogen through the steam reforming of ethanol. The microchannels walls were coated with a thin layer...
