Overview

In any chemical process, often one encounter interaction between phases where transfer of species takes place from one phase to other. That is there exist several situations of vapor-liquid, liquid-liquid, vapor-liquid-liquid, solid-liquid equilibria in chemical engineering processes. Often these situations are dealt with assumption of ideal behavior and binary systems but in reality non-ideality and multicomponent mixtures exists and accordingly one has to deal with such situations. This course offers step-by-step understanding of required thermodynamic properties to handle such equilibrium cases and explore possible ways of solving problems associated with non-ideality in VLE, LLE, VLLE and SLE for multicomponent mixtures. INTENDED AUDIENCE : Chemical Engineering, Biotechnology, Petroleum Engineering, Polymer Engineering and Food Engineering PREREQUISITES : UG Level Thermodynamics Course INDUSTRY SUPPORT : Oil and Gas Industries, Chemical Industries, Polymer Industries, Biochemical Industries
