The selective separation of aromatics (benzene, toluene and p-xylene, BTX) from aliphatic (n-heptane) is investigated using simple permeation and facilitated transport emulsion liquid membrane mechanism. The separation performances, represented by the permeation rate and separation factor, are analyzed systematically by varying the operating parameters. One(More)
Phosphorus is one of the primary nutrients which leads to eutrophication and accelerates aging process in enclosed water bodies. Because of the poor phosphorus selectivity of other adsorbents, the novel La(III)-modified zeolite adsorbent (LZA) was prepared by modifying 90 nm zeolite with lanthanide to selectively remove phosphate in the presence of various(More)
The population balance equation finds many applications in modelling poly-dispersed systems arising in many engineering applications such as aerosols dynamics, crystallization, precipitation, granulation, liquid-liquid, gas-liquid, combustion processes and microbial systems. The population balance lays down a modern approach for modelling the complex(More)
In this joint work, a complete framework for modeling, simulating and visualizing multiphase fluid flow within an extraction column is presented. We first present a volume-of-fluid simulation, which is able to predict the surface of the droplets during coalescence. However, a fast and efficient model is needed for the simulation of a liquid-liquid(More)
The influence of non-ionic surfactants on the selectivity and retention in the ligand exchange chromatography for the enantioselective separation of racemic mixtures of the amino acids dl-methionine, dl-leucine, dl-valine and dl-tyrosine applying chiral mobile phases was investigated, whereas five different surfactants were tested as modifiers. The(More)
A rigours mathematical model based on the bivariate population balance frame work (the base of LLECMOD ''Liquid-Liquid Extraction Column Module'') for the steady state and dynamic simulation of pulsed liquid-liquid extraction columns is developed. The model simulates the coupled hydrodynamic and mass transfer for pulsed (packed and sieve plate) extraction(More)
The biofouling affinity of different polymeric surfaces (polypropylene, polysulfone, polyethylene terephthalate, and polyether ether ketone) in comparison to stainless steel (SS) was studied for the model bacterium Escherichia coli K12 DSM 498 and native biofilms originating from Rhine water. The biofilm mass deposited on the polymer surfaces was minimized(More)
The cloud point separation of Direct Yellow from micellar solution of various nonionic surfactants, containing a polyoxyethylene chain, was studied. The separation of dyes is an important environmental problem. Moreover, such separation can also be considered as a preliminary step for further studies of biochemical recovery. Some dyes can be considered as(More)
The ultrafiltration of colloid solutions containing hexadecyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB), sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS), and alkylpolyglucoside (APG) through hydrophilic membranes with a 10,000 mol wt cut-off from regenerated cellulose was studied. The effects of experimental conditions on the permeate flux and secondary resistance were determined. It(More)
