By the end of the course, the student is expected to be able to: describe the conventional and novel adsorption and ion-exchange materials; describe the conventional and novel applications of adsorption and ion-exchange; select a suitable adsorption/ion-exchange material for a particular purpose; understand the surface reactions in adsorption processes; and use the above mentioned knowledge to solve real problems through problem-based learning (PBL) group exercises


Learning the types and properties of conventional and novel adsorption and ion-exchange materials and their applications in water treatment. Learning to evaluate the economic and environmental aspects of the production and use of different sorption materials. Learning the surface reactions and theories behind the adsorption/ion exchange phenomena. Both individual and group work including PBL method, exercises and homework assignments will be conducted.
