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 ...
