Interesting applications / Enrichment materials

These first 3 readings seem old, but they are still relevant. For example, the same principles are used in modern bioseparations.

  1. A comprehensive article on liquid-liquid extraction which describes the various units available.
  2. A reading on solvent extraction principles
  3. A general article on liquid liquid extractors.
  4. An interesting reading on safety in liquid-liquid extraction plants: a further reason for counter-current operations to minimize solvent use.
  5. Here's another instructor's slides on the same topic - sometimes a different point of view helps to understand.
