Silicalite-1 and Al-ZSM-5 membranes were prepared by combining one-step in situ seeding with one secondary membrane growth step. For membranes prepared under similar conditions, Al-ZSM-5 membrane growth was found to be considerably slower than Silicalite-1 growth leading to a significantly higher preferred axial orientation of the Silicalite-1 membranes. H(2)/SF(6) single gas permeation measurements revealed that for both membrane types a correlation existed between the H(2)/SF(6) ideal perm-selectivities and the zeolite layer thickness. Above a certain thickness the defect density is independent of layer thickness. However, Al-ZSM-5 membrane perm-selectivities were higher, despite lower membrane thicknesses and comparable hydrogen permeation rates. For example, room temperature ideal H(2)/SF(6) perm-selectivities of about 136 and 65 were measured for a 7.5 mum thick Al-ZSM-5 and a 45 mum thick Silicalite-1 membrane, respectively. Comparison to literature data revealed that the membranes were of good quality. Moreover, reproducibility of the membrane synthesis procedure proved to be good. (C) 2004 Elsevier Inc.
