Researchers at ETH Zurich have developed porous ceramic catalysts for micro-electromechanical systems, the technique is patent pending. The patent describes a very flexible and cost-efficient method to produce a solid structured foam-type catalyst that can be filled in micro-electromechanical sys­tems (MEMS) and nano powder cata­lysts produced by such a method.

Good and efficient catalyst materials are often nanosized materials available in powder form. In order to use such a cata­lyst in a MEMS device the nano...
