MEMBRANE SEPARATION PROCESSES
This concise and systematically organized text gives a clear insight into various membrane separation processes, covering the fundamentals as well as the recent developments of different processes as well as their industrial applications and the products. It covers the basic principles, operating parameters, types of membrane used, flux equation, transport mechanism, and applications of membrane-based technologies. Membrane separation processes are largely rate-controlled separations which require rate analysis for complete understanding. Moreover, a higher level of mathematical analysis, along with the understanding of mass transfer, is also required. These are amply treated in different chapters of the book to make the students comprehend the membrane separation principles with ease. The book has a sufficient number of examples and exercises, thus making it student friendly. KEY FEATURES Provides sufficient numbers of examples of industrial applications related to chemical, metallurgical, biochemical and food processing industries. Focuses on important biomedical applications of membrane-based technologies such as blood oxygenator, controlled drug delivery, plasmapheresis, and bioartificial organs. Includes chapter-end short questions and problems to test students’ comprehension of the subject. This textbook is primarily designed for undergraduate students of chemical engineering, biochemical engineering and biotechnology for the course in membrane separation processes. Besides, the book will also be useful to process engineers and researchers.

This is the best book on Separation Processes I have ever read. The section of Pervaporation is given in such a way that it can be understood in a single attempt. Hats off to the author!
