The goal of this course is to provide students with an understanding of the physical elements relevant to processing of formulations. Students will learn systematic procedures, including drawing and labelling flowchart, for calculating the materials and energy required and key compositions during production. They will be able to use solubility behaviours and phase diagrams to determine the composition of the different parts of formulated products, such as oil and water phases in emulsions.
By the end of the course you will be able to:Draw and label a process flow diagram for a batch or continuous production processDevise a strategy for determining all flows/quantities and compositions at all points in a process flow diagramDetermine whether or not all information needed to solve for all flows/quantities and compositions in a process flow diagram is knownApply the solution strategy to solve a range of problems relevant to product formulationCarry out simple calculations to determine the amount of energy input-output that might be required by individual unit operations in a processCalculate the composition of liquids and gases based upon knowledge of solute-solvent behavioursUse phase diagrams to determine the forms, quantities and compositions of immiscible liquid mixtures such as emulsion
