Design and Synthesis of Membrane Separation Processes provides a novel method of design and synthesis for membrane separation. While the main focus of the book is given to gas separation and pervaporation membranes, the theory has been developed in such a way that it is general and valid for any type of membrane. The method, which uses a graphical technique, allows one to calculate and visualize the change in composition of the retentate (non-permeate) phase. This graphical approach is based on Membrane Residue Curve Maps. One of the strengths of this approach is that it is exactly analogous to the method of Residue Curve Maps that has proved so successful in distillation system synthesis and design.

Key Features:-

  • Provides fundamental methods for the process design and synthesis of membranes
  • Includes a CD that allows the user to input variables for examples and calculations
  • Uses a novel method, membrane residue curve maps, to design and produce membrane systems
  • Applies and adapts the well–known technique for batch distillation in the design of several types of
