Exploring the potential application of Matrimid® and ZIFs-based membranes for hydrogen recovery: a review

Abstract: Hydrogen recovery is at the center of the energy transition guidelines promoted by governments, owing to its applicability as an energy resource, but calls for energetically nonintensive recovery methods. The employment of polymeric membranes in selective gas separations has arisen as a potential alternative, as its established commercial availability demonstrates. However, enhanced features need to be developed to achieve adequate mechanical properties and the membrane performance that allows the obtention of hydrogen with the required industrial purity. Matrimid®, as a polyimide, is an attractive material providing relatively good performance to selectively recover hydrogen. As a consequence, this review aims to study and summarize the main results, mechanisms involved and advances in the use of Matrimid® as a selective material for hydrogen separation to date, delving into membrane fabrication procedures that increase the effectiveness of hydrogen recovery, i.e., the addition of fillers (within which ZIFs have acquired extraordinary importance), chemical crosslinking or polymeric blending, among others.
