Postgraduate Course: Adsorption (MSc) (PGEE11081)
|School||School of Engineering
||College||College of Science and Engineering
|Credit level (Normal year taken)||SCQF Level 11 (Postgraduate)
||Availability||Available to all students
|Summary||The course will cover the basic principles of adsorption and
adsorption separation processes including both equilibrium and
dynamic modelling and a brief overview of representative
industrial processes. The main topics will be:
Forces and energetics of adsorption;
Adsorption equilibrium (including both single and
Adsorbent materials (with emphasis on zeolites and activated
Sorption kinetics and measurement of transport properties;
Adsorption Column Dynamics (including linear, non-linear and
Adsorption Separation processes (choice of regeneration
methods, pressure swing, thermal swing and displacement
Membrane Processes (brief introduction)
The relationship between the properties of the adsorbent and
the process applications will be emphasized.
