    The goalAcquiring knowledge about dense gas application in separation processes, both in the field of extraction and production of materials with special characteristics.
    The outcomeOn the basis of acquired knowledge from this course students are capable to participate in development of high pressure separation processes on the laboratory scale, or to take part in these procedures on semi-industrial or industrial scale.
    Contents of lecturesThermodynamic and mass-transfer properties of dense gasses (phase balance, transport properties), dense gasses application in separation processes (extraction of active compounds from plant materials, separation of chiral compounds, supercritical extraction in petrochemistry), mathematical modeling of high pressure processes in packed bed, adsorption and absorption under high pressures, production of micro and nano particles with supercritical fluids, production of polymers with desired pore size distribution.
    Contents of exercisesPractical part includes experimental work on some of the laboratory facilities for high pressure processes.
