EXSORPTION - A NEW, SEPARATION PROCESS Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Exsorption is a new separation process based on extraction and adsorption. The solute removal capacity of this new process can be greater than that of simple extraction (absorption) or adsorption process. The addition of an adsorbent into the solvent phase does not increase the adsorption capacity of the solvent. In some cases the low-capacity solvents, that are not appropriate to solvent extraction (or absorption) process, can be used in the exsorption process because of the high adsorption capacity of the adsorbent in this solvent phase. The solute selectivity of the exsorption from a single-solute feeding solution can be greater than the simple extraction (or absorption) or adsorption process.
