Chapter 29. Adsorption and Chromatography

Learning Objectives

After completing this chapter, you will be able to:

  • Appreciate typical applications of adsorption and chromatography.

  • Understand common types of models used to describe solid–fluid equilibria (adsorption isotherms).

  • Understand the sequence of mass transfer steps involved in adsorption and chromatography.

  • Set up and solve models for predicting the performance of batch and continuous packed bed adsorption columns.

  • Understand how axial dispersion and internal diffusion effects can affect the performance of chromatographic columns.

Adsorption is a mass transfer process by which a chemical component from a fluid phase is transferred and attached to a solid phase. This can be an effective ...
