Theoretical Advancement in Chromatography and Related Separation Techniques : Proceedings of the NATO Advanced Study Institute, Ferrara, Italy, August 18-30, 1991
Chromatography and all the related separation techniques are experimental in their origin and justification. However, the spectacular progress made in this area since World War II has given rise to a theoretical underpinning. The present book covers the current status of the research area and places it in perspective with the general concepts of the fields of physical chemistry involved. The ASI lecturers/authors - well known leaders in their fields - have written presentations at the graduate level, accessible to all those who have a good general background in the thermodynamics and mass transfer theory of phase equilibria. The book should be useful to young scientists and engineers who wish to access the current frontiers in chromatography and other separation sciences.
