- The research supported by DOE under this grant resulted in the development of continuous flow adsorptive chemical reactors based on chromatographic separations. In particular, the countercurrent moving bed chromatographic reactor and the simulated countercurrent moving bed chromatographic reactor were investigated both theoretically and experimentally. An important contribution was the demonstration that simulated countercurrent moving bed reactors can be successfully used for methane conversion reactions, giving promise of commercial processes for turning natural gas into useful chemical feedstocks and fuels. This work has stimulated interest in the area of reactive adsorption/separation. This paper discusses the advantages of this technology.
