Course description and aims

[Description of this course] This course will focus on the chemical thermodynamics of mixture, the fundamentals of phase equilibrium, interface phonomenon required for the design and optimization of chemical processes.
[Aim of this course] This course aims for students to understand phase equilibrium, surface tension, and adsorption equilibrium and how to estimate transport properties required for the design and optimization of reaction and separation processes.

Student learning outcomes

[Student learning outcomes] At the end of this course, students will be able to understand:
1) basic concept of phase equilibrium, activity coefficients
2) fundamentals and criteria for gas-liquid and liquid-liquid equilibrium
3) fundamentals of surface tension, wettability of solid surface
4) fundamentals of adsorption equilibrium and thermodynamics


thermodynamics of mixture, phase equilibria, activity coefficient, surface tension, wettability, adsorption equilibria

Competencies that will be developed

Specialist skills Intercultural skills Communication skills Critical thinking skills Practical and/or problem-solving skills

Class flow

This course proceeds according to slides uploaded to T2SCHOLA. Towards the end of class, students are given exercise problems related to what is taught on that day to solve. Before coming to class, students should read the course schedule and check what topics will be covered. Required learning should be completed outside of the classroom for preparation and review purposes.

Course schedule/Required learning

  Course schedule Required learning
Class 1 Fundamentals of phase equilibrium calculation To understand the fundamentals of phase equilibrium calculation.
Class 2 Phase equilibrium and activity coefficients To understand phase equilibrium and activity coefficients.
Class 3 Fundamentals and criteria for gas-liquid and liquid-liquid equilibria To understand the fundamentals and criteria for gas-liquid and liquid-liquid equilibria.
Class 4 Fundamentals of surface tension To understand fundamentals of surface tension.
Class 5 Wettability of solid surface and capillary action To understand wettability of solid surface and capillary action.
Class 6 Fundamentals of adsorption equilibrium To understand the fundamentals of adsorption equilibrium.

Out-of-Class Study Time (Preparation and Review)

To enhance effective learning, students are encouraged to spend approximately 100 minutes preparing for class and another 100 minutes reviewing class content afterwards (including assignments) for each class.
They should do so by referring to textbooks and other course material.


None required.

Reference books, course materials, etc.

All materials used in class can be found on T2SCHOLA.

Assessment criteria and methods

Students will be evaluated based on their understanding of phase equilibrium and surface tension. Students' course score will be decided by considering all of homework, exercise (attendance), final exam.
