Applications which fit the following description should be submitted under
funding opportunity title of Joining and Sealing High Temperature Gas
Separation Membranes (DE-PS26-05NT42244-08).

One of the enabling technologies required for high efficiency, low
fossil energy conversion is the development of sealing materials for
hermetically joining the inorganic membranes used in high temperature gas
separation to the underlying support structure of the separation device.
Ceramic membranes, which have operating temperatures between 250 and
1000 degrees C,
are attracting increasing attention because of their technological
in high temperature gas separation and membrane reactor processes.
However, in
order to fully exploit the unique properties of these advanced ceramics,
ceramic membranes must be sealed to a dense ceramic or a metal support
structure. Commonly used seals are not suitable for these applications
their heat resistance is ineffective above 400 degrees C. Therefore, grant
applications are sought to develop inorganic materials with high melting
that can be used for sealing the ceramic membranes at high temperatures
(greater than 600 degrees C). For good sealing results, the seals must be
tailored to
obtain suitable wettability, viscosity, chemical inertness, thermal
expansibility, and bonding strength. The sealing of these ceramic
should achieve a success rate of nearly 100% if correct sealing procedures
