This course teaches the fundamentals of separation required in various chemical studies. Molecular mechanisms that separation relies on, quantitative interpretation of separation processes, what causes good or poor separation etc will be theoretically considered based on physical phenomena including fluid mechanics and mass transfer as well as chemical interactions. This course enables students to overcome the problems that they will encounter in their own research work.
By the end of this course, students will: 1. Know physics and chemistry involved in separation processes. 2. Understand the quantitative interpretation of results of separation. 3. Know dynamics and statics of separation processes. 4. Know how to improve separation performance. 5. Know that separation is not only a practical tool but also an efficient probe to the solution and interfacial phenomena
