Separation Science and Technology

Aim & scope

Separation science is continually evolving. To achieve a successful separation, a mixture is divided into two or more fractions having different compositions.

To further improve a separation process, it is necessary to develop a better understanding of physical/chemical processes involved in a given separation.

When a mixture contains more than two components, the process becomes more complex; it is generally called chromatography because the procedure was initially used for the separation of coloured compounds.

Sample cover of Separation Science and Technology

One of the goals of the series is to cover the subject in a concise manner and avoid burdening the reader with many details and mathematical equations.

The key features of Separation Science and Technology series are:

  • Cover the fundamental physical and chemical phenomena involved in separations

  • Provide a concise overview of the basics of transport phenomena and thermodynamics

  • Explain how simple extraction and partition processes provide the basis of separations

  • Describe the role of chromatography and separation science in various fields

  • Discuss the role of separation science and technology in the development of methodologies

  • Present new and evolving methods and show the best way to select an optimum method


The series is designed to enable researchers in both academia and industry to efficiently keep abreast of developments in analytical chemistry.
