18.1 Sorbents and Sorption Equilibrium

Since sorption and sorbents are quite different from the equilibrium-staged processes and the membrane separations studied earlier, we need to first carefully define the terms needed to study and design these systems. After a short description of the different sorbents, the equilibrium behavior of sorbent systems will be introduced. Then the last fundamental piece required is the mass transfer characteristics of sorbents and sorption processes.
