Handbook of Methods and Instrumentation in Separation Science, Volume 2 provides concise overviews and summaries of the main methods used for separation. The contents are based on the Encyclopedia of Separation Science. The handbook focuses on the principles of methods and instrumentation. It provides general concepts concerning the subject matter; it does not present specific procedures. The volume discusses the separation processes including crystallization, distillation, electrophoresis, extraction, flotation, ion exchange, membrane separations, and particle size separations. Each separation process is defined and compared with other methodologies. It also provides specific techniques under each method of separation. Moreover, the handbook presents the applications and advantages of the processes described in this book. The handbook is an excellent reference for environmental and production chemists, biomedical researchers, food and beverage technologists, flavor and fragrance technologists, nuclear researchers, and academic and industrial librarians. Students and novice will also find this handbook useful.
