Process design, optimization and intensification

Edited by Dr Rafiqul Gani
​​​​​​​
Scope: This section considers the design, optimization and intensification of chemical processes. This includes fundamental work on process and product systems engineering, multiphase processing, materials processing, particle technology, product design, process monitoring and optimization, reactor miniaturization, multifunctionality and intensification of process operation. The section will also consider papers applying process design, optimization and intensification principles to the chemical, petrochemical, agricultural, food, pharmaceutical, materials and energy industries.

  1. Ionic liquids (ILs) have been recently considered as potential entrainers for extractive distillation. The use of ILs may affect the vapor-liquid properties to aid the separation of azeotropic mixtures. In par...
