Course description and aims

In this lecture, students will learn the separation process and reaction process, which are one of the most important unit operations in the industrial chemical process or environmental conservation process. First, understand the adsorption separation and membrane separation processes. In addition to understanding the outline of petroleum refining and petrochemical processes, learn about the basis of chemical reaction using solid catalyst and reactor design.

Student learning outcomes

In this lecture, in addition to deep understanding of the separation and reaction processes, learn the organic linkage of the chemical processes composing of separation and reaction processes.
