NOVELTY – Manufacturing microchannel plates involves adding metal material into a device containing ytterbium, and then performing chemical treatment at 200-1200 degrees C for 2-24 hours. An acidic solution is added to the obtained reaction product. USE – Method for manufacturing microchannel plates for use in microreactor used for producing hydrogen in situ to use in laboratories (claimed).
J01 (Separation – including evaporation, crystallisation, solvent extraction, chromatography, dialysis, osmosis including drying gases and/or vapours, and separation of solids from gases, liquids and other solids. Isotope separation, filter materials (including molecular sieves for separation), and centrifuges (except where used for analysis) (B01D, B03, B04, B07B).); J04 (Chemical/physical processes/apparatus – including catalysis, catalysts (excluding specific e.g. enzymatic or polymerisation catalysts), colloid chemistry, laboratory apparatus and methods, testing, controlling, general encapsulation, detection and sampling (excluding clinical testing) (B01J, L).)
