Abstract: Pure silica CHA-type zeolite (Si-CHA) membranes were synthesized by a hydrothermal secondary growth method on porous α-alumina supports. Using Si-CHA seed crystals as a crystalline nuclei allowed the formation of a dense Si-CHA layer. The Si-CHA membranes prepared in this study showed excellent gas permeance derived from their large pore volume and effective molecular sieve performance for gas separation. The Si-CHA membranes exhibited excellent H 2 and CO 2 permeance of 1.1 × 10 −6 and 1.7 × 10 −6 mol/m 2 sPa…
