By Catherine Charcosset

Membrane techniques are more and more utilized in pharmaceutical and biochemical engineering and biotechnology for focus and purification, synthesis of molecules and drug supply platforms, and help for biochemical reactions. This e-book offers a state-of-the paintings evaluate of the classical membrane procedures utilized in pharmaceutical and biochemical engineering and biotechnology, equivalent to ultrafiltration, microfiltration, virus filtration, membrane chromatography, membrane emulsification, liquid membranes and membrane bioreactors. It describes the final principles (principles, selection of configurations, membranes, parameters, etc.), fresh advancements (fouling keep an eye on, elevate permeate flux and selectivity, etc.), functions, and theoretical descriptions. additional, it provides rising strategies equivalent to solvent resistant nanofiltration and membrane crystallization.
