Description

This interdisciplinary approach combines the chemistry and engineering involved to describe the conception and improvement of chromatographic processes. The book covers recent developments in preparative chromatographic processes for the separation of "smaller" molecules using standard laboratory equipment as well as the detailed conception of industrial chemical plants.

Following an introductory section on the history of chromatography, the current state of research and the design of chromatographic processes, the book goes on to define the general terminology. There then follow sections on solid materials and packed columns process concepts. Final chapters on modeling and determination of model parameters, the design and optimization of preparative chromatographic processes and chromatographic reactors allow for the optimum selection of chromatographic systems.

Essential for chemists and engineers working in the chemicals and pharmaceutical industries as well as for food technologies, due to the interdisciplinary nature of these processes.

Reviews

"Das Buch beginnt mit der Frage: Warum ein weiteres Buch zum Thema "Präparativer Chromatographie"? Für alle, die das Buch gelesen haben, wird sich diese Frage nicht mehr stellen. Es war absolut überfällig in einer Welt, in der wir langsam die Komplexität natürlicher Prozesse begreifen und die Überschreitung der Grenzen zwischen Chemie, Physik, den Ingenieurswissenschaften und weiteren Disziplinen zwingend notwendig wird."
Nachrichten aus der Chemie

"...es gibt kein vergleichbares Werk. Für Pharmazeuten ist es besonders im Kontext der Herstellung, Reinigung und Isolierung von Wirkstoffen und Verunreinigungen außerordentlich nützlich."
