The main purpose of Separation Processes II is to provide to students the ability to:
- Understand the fundamental concepts of most recent separation processes in the chemical industry: crystallization, adsorption and chromatography and membrane separation processes.
- To design the equipment required for each of the studied processes.

The teaching comprises lectures and practical/laboratorial classes. Lectures cover all the content according with the syllabus. Wherever necessary example problems will be solved to illustrate the given concepts. Laboratorial classes are programmed to carry out practical works related to the lectures. The students will prepare seminars related with the topics of the course, giving emphasis to new techniques of separation.
