Advanced Thermodynamics

By Prof. Nanda Kishore   |   IIT Guwahati
In any chemical process, often one encounter interaction between phases where transfer of species takes place from one phase to other. That is there exist several situations of vapor-liquid, liquid-liquid, vapor-liquid-liquid, solid-liquid equilibria in chemical engineering processes. Often these situations are dealt with assumption of ideal behavior and binary systems but in reality non-ideality and multicomponent mixtures exists and accordingly one has to deal with such situations. This course offers step-by-step understanding of required thermodynamic properties to handle such equilibrium cases and explore possible ways of solving problems associated with non-ideality in VLE, LLE, VLLE and SLE for multicomponent mixtures.
