Abstract

Brownmillerite (BM)-type oxide sorbents have gained attention recently for producing oxygen-enriched streams. Herein, a cost-effective method of quenching with the use of an Al foil pad is adapted for the synthesis of brownmillerite SrCoO2.5. The oxygen storage capacity of this oxide has been investigated using a simple home-built volumetric setup. The oxygen-rich phase was formed by a pressurized heat-treatment of a BM sample. The oxygen storage capacity of the sample has been calculated from the pressure change during desorption. The effect of oxygen pressure on the amount of oxygen stored inside the sample has also been evaluated. Furthermore, selective absorption of oxygen is confirmed by performing the absorption in compressed air. The results indicate that 15.28 cm(3) O-2 g(-1) can be stored in the sample at STP. The change in oxygen content in SrCoO2.5+delta varied reversibly up to a delta value of 0.26, which is confirmed by iodometric titration. It is shown that the new method of quenching proposed does not deteriorate the oxygen storage property of the material.
