Ion- Exchange Membrane Processes: Their Principal and Practical Applications

Ion- Exchange Membrane Processes: Their Principal and Practical Applications

The objective of this seminar is to provide a comprehensive description of the fundamentals of ion-exchange membranes processes and their applications. The subject is covered in six chapters. First, a very general overview of relevant ion-exchange membrane processes is given. Then some electrochemical and thermodynamic fundamentals are discussed. The preparation and characterization of ion-exchange membranes is described next. This is followed by a discussion of the various processes as unit operations and the design of systems and equipment. Finally, present and possible future applications of ion-exchange membrane processes are treated and research needs are pointed out.
