Following an introductory section on the history of chromatography, the current state of research and the design of chromatographic processes, the book goes on to define the general terminology. There then follow sections on stationary phases, selection of chromatographic systems and process concepts. A completely new chapter deals with engineering and operation of chromatographic equipment. Final chapters on modeling and determination of model parameters as well as model based design, optimization and control of preparative chromatographic processes allow for optimal selection of chromatographic processes.
Essential for chemists and chemical engineers in the chemical, pharmaceutical, and food industries.
Keywords: Industrial Chemistry, process engineering, process simulation, process optimization, chemical industries, chromatographic systems, process-scale preparative chromatography, separation of mixtures, chemical engineering
