New geometries for monolithic catalyst supports are described where the number of square cells per square inch is increased and the cell wall thicknesses are descreased. Catalytic cycle efficiencies are improved due to an increase in the geometric surface area and reduction in thermal inertia. Physical properties are discussed and the effect of the new structures on thermal shock resistance, melting, pressure drop, strength, coatability and catalytic activity are described.
