Adsorption and ion exchange: basic principles and their application in food processing


Adsorption and ion exchange: basic principles and their application in food processing

Suvardhan Kanchi, Myalownkosi I Sabela, Krishna Bisetty, Shakeel Ahmed

This chapter provides a critical review for a wide range of ion-exchange chromatography applications which is an integral part of our food processing industry. The characteristics of ion exchange chromatography are reviewed with particular emphasis on the basic principle and its column materials using state-of-the-art analytical instrumentation coupled with different detectors for analysis.
