Separation techniques are integral unit operation in most of the modern chemical, pharmaceutical and other process plants. There are many standard and conventional separation techniques available in the market and these techniques are quite common and the relevant technologies as well as well developed and well studied. On the other hand, newer separation processes, like, membrane based techniques, chromatographic separation, super critical fluid extraction, etc., are gaining importance in modern days plants. The present course is designed to emphasize on these novel separation processes. The course is designed for an elective subject of final year undergraduate students.
Course Outcome
After learning the course the students should be able:
1. To built advanced concepts of separation techniques used in chemical industries.
2. To understand the principles and functioning advanced separation techniques.
3. To utilize the advanced separation technique in problem solving where conventional techniques are not fruitful and require replacement.
4. To understand the applications of advanced separation techniques as per industrial requirement..
5. To recognize the selection criteria between advanced separation techniques and conventional separation techniques.

Active Learning
Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos, animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus to be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should submit to GTU.
