Adsorption and membrane processes, Chemical Engineering

Zeolites are used to adsorb a wide range of solutes from vapour and gas streams. What is it about their structure that makes them suitable for selective adsorption? What isotherm(s) is/are used to model the adsorption capacity of zeolites? Describe, with examples, three different industrial processes that successfully utilize zeolites.

Include in your discussion for each application how the selected zeolite's structure influences its performance and why zeolites are used in preference to other types of available adsorbents, in particular activated carbons. Your report should be fully referenced within the text, including any pictures or diagrams copied and used. Include an Abstract at the beginning (no more than 8 lines). The Abstract should be followed by an Introduction, and then individual Sections (e.g., one on structure, one on isotherms, one each for the three industrial process etc.).

Finally, include a Conclusion section that provides an overall discussion of the key points arising from the entire report. The Conclusions should be no more than one page. Make sure you include at the end of the report a list of all the References used in the text (make sure that you also indicate throughout the report those sections of text and/or diagrams that are references, and from which reference(s) they came from). On-line encyclopedias, such as Wikipedia, are not adequate as a reference - you must look at and quote the original source (e.g., journal article, book, technical report etc.).
