Course Description

Chemical Processes consist of variety of units and operations. Here, distillation, gas absorption, extraction, and so forth which aim substance separation and purification will be lectured from basic principle and phenomena to kinetics and quantitative expression.

Grading

Evaluation will be made based on midterm exam, routine exam at the end of semester, and reports often given in lectures.

Course Goals

By taking typical separation operations as examples, mass balance, the students will understand the concept of mass transfer, and equilibrium, and they will master how to use them in quantitative manner. Additionally, they cultivate their ability to use differential contact operation and stage operation.

Course Topics

Theme Class number of times Description
Fundamental of mass separation and mass purification 3 Principles and methods in substance separation and purity, which are important for chemical process, will be lectured. Fundamentals of molecular diffusion and mass transport will be explained.
gas absorption 4 Equilibrium of gas with liquid, diffusion in liquid phase, gas diffusion rate, and design of gas absorption will be lectured, and the students will understand the idea of differential contact operation.
distillation 4 Method to correlate the gas-liquid equilibrium will be lectured, and fundamental principle of distillation operation is explained as operation for purification of liquid mixture. The design method of continuous rectifying trays tower will be lectured as the most simple multi-stage contact operation method.
extraction 3 Method to correlate the gas-liquid equilibrium will be lectured, and fundamental principle of distillation operation is explained as operation for purification of liquid mixture. The design method of continuous rectifying trays tower will be lectured as the most simple multi-stage contact operation method.
Feedback class 1 A supplementary lecture or exercise class will be conducted as an additional class to give advanced knowledge or to confirm the attainment level of the course goals on diffusion, gas absorption and distillation.
