  • In this chapter the principles of simulated moving bed technology are presented, starting with the history of chromatography and the progress from batch to continuous chromatography (true moving bed, TMB, and simulated moving bed, SMB). The basic equation (De Vault equation) to understand adsorption is derived and a simple design method for binary separations based on the equilibrium theory and linear adsorption isotherms is presented, leading to the representation of separation/regeneration… CONTINUE READING
