Introduction

Distillation is one of the oldest and most widely studied unit operations in chemical engineering. It is familiar as a separation technique to chemical, process and petroleum engineers and to chemists. The common techniques, design methods and numerous applications have been extensively documented in monographs and in the journal literature (and conference proceedings) over many decades. Specialist texts and more general handbooks should be familiar to those working in related fields, therefore these standard sources are not documented here. The importance of distillation and its future directions have been discussed by Kunesh et al. (1995) and by Porter (1995) (see Further Reading). This article presents a state-of-the-art overview of distillation by concentrating on recent advances and possible future developments.
