Preface

In the 21st century, separations remain as important, if not more important, than in the previous century. The development of new industries such as biotechnology and nanotechnology, the increased importance of removing traces of compounds, and the probable need to recover and sequester carbon dioxide have brought new separations to the fore. Chemical engineers must understand and design new separation processes such as membrane separations, adsorption, and chromatography in addition to the standard equilibrium-staged separations, including distillation, absorption, and extraction. Since membrane separations, adsorption, chromatography, and ion exchange are included, I changed the title of the second edition from Equilibrium-Staged Separations ...
