Separation techniques are a major part of analytical chemistry and chemical engineering, play an important role in different fields like biotechnology, forensic studies, food technology, the pharmaceutical industry, and petroleum industries. Major advances in separation science have enabled biologists, chemists, pharmacists and environmentalists make breakthroughs of their own genomics, drug discovery, DNA fingerprinting and ultra-trace residue analysis, for instance, would not be possible without recourse to the findings generated by separation science. 

High-throughput separations (fast analysis) are in great demand in many fields, such as clinical, forensics, toxicology, environmental and pharmaceutical analyses. On the other hand, highly efficient separations are necessary for many applications, including metabolomics, proteomics, and genomics. Very complex samples, such as biological materials, tryptic digests or natural plant extracts require highly efficient and fast analytical procedures to yield high resolution within an acceptable analysis time. The growing demand to enhance efficiency and reduce analysis speed directed many researchers to develop innovations in the traditional separation system.

Chromatography is an important biophysical technique that enables the separation, identification, and purification of the components of a mixture for qualitative and quantitative analysis. Proteins can be purified based on characteristics such as size and shape, total charge, hydrophobic groups present on the surface, and binding capacity with the stationary phase. Four separation techniques based on molecular characteristics and interaction type use mechanisms of ion exchange, surface adsorption, partition, and size exclusion. Other chromatography techniques are based on the stationary bed, including column, thin layer, and paper chromatography. Column chromatography is one of the most common methods of protein purification.

Spectroscopy deals with the production, measurement, and interpretation of spectra arising from the interaction of electromagnetic radiation with matter. There are many different spectroscopic methods available for solving a wide range of analytical problems. The methods differ with respect to the species to be analyzed (such as molecular or atomic spectroscopy), the type of radiation–matter interaction to be monitored (such as absorption, emission, or diffraction), and the region of the electromagnetic spectrum used in the analysis. Spectroscopic methods are very informative and widely used for both quantitative and qualitative analyses.

These technologies use heat evaporative systems, involve brine heaters, flash chambers and high temperature conversion processes in the conversion of seawater to fresh water.  This technology has demanded the use of a wide range of materials involving the copper-base (cupronickels), iron-base (stainless steels) and titanium.  Both the multi-stage flash (MSF) and the multi-effect distillation (med) processes are very capital intensive, with large footprints.The membrane process, or reverse osmosis (RO), is the low-temperature, high-pressure process in achieving the same ends. At the same time, this is a separation process used in the optimization and purification of potable and drinking waters. This process can be modularized or built as a full-scale plant for conversion.

The development of the pharmaceuticals brought a revolution in human health. These pharmaceuticals would serve their intent only if they are free from impurities and are administered in an appropriate amount. To make drugs serve their purpose various chemical and instrumental methods were developed at regular intervals which are involved in the estimation of drugs. These pharmaceuticals may develop impurities at various stages of their development, transportation and storage which makes the pharmaceutical risky to be administered thus they must be detected and quantitated. For this analytical instrumentation and methods play an important role.

Chemical processes consist of separation stages in which the process streams are separated and purified. Heterogeneous mixtures consist of two or more phases which have different composition. These mixtures consist of components that do not react chemically and have clearly visible boundaries of separation between the different phases. Components of such mixture can be separated using one or more appropriate techniques. These separation processes includes gas-liquid (vapor-liquid) separation, gas-solid separation (vapor-solid), liquid-liquid separation (immiscible), liquid-solid, and solid-solid separation etc. This separation can be done by exploiting the differences in density between the phases. Gravitational force or centrifugal force can be used to enhance the separation.

Separation Techniques is the most important unit operation in food processing. The first processes developed to separate food components selected physical or mechanical means that allowed simple separations involving solid–solid or solid–liquid systems. Another group of separation relied on heat-induced phase changes as the driving force for the separation. From simple evaporation to distillation and solvent extraction, such approaches allowed for the concentration of many liquid foods (i.e. milk, fruit and vegetable juices, etc.) and for as the industrial production of ethanol, liquor, and vegetable oils.

Geologically, worldwide detachment innovations advertise has been portioned into four zones to be specific, North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Rest of the World. Separation techniques industry which is comprised of several equipment like chromatography, spectrometry, electrophoresis, is one of the emerging field which shows the greater impact in the market.


Mineral metals are one of the fundamental crude materials which ought to be isolated and cleaned to their mineral structures. Mineral metal can be isolated by their molecule sizes, physical properties, and concoction properties. Partitions are made by concoction medicines and they are liable to quality control in every area to achieve its monetary review by isolating every other contamination. Mineral processing, the art of treating crude ores and mineral products in order to separate the valuable minerals from the waste rock, or gangue. It is the first process that most ores undergo after mining in order to provide a more concentrated material for the procedures of extractive metallurgy. The primary operations are comminution and concentration, but there are other important operations in a modern mineral processing plant, including sampling and analysis and dewatering.

Radiochemical separation methods include precipitation, solvent extraction, distillation, ion exchange, and chromatography. Since radioelements are often present in very low chemical concentrations, effects such as sorption on surfaces, anomalies in solvent extraction, etc., must be guarded against. These effects may be eliminated by the addition of an acid, a complexing agent, or a carrier to a radioelement solution. A carrier is a material chemically similar to, or identical with, a given radionuclide. An isotopic carrier is the ordinary stable element with which the radioactive species are isotopic.

Absorption and Adsorption is an important part of separation techniques. The major difference between adsorption and absorption is that one is a surface process and the other a bulk process. It plays a big role in reducing air pollution in many applications around the world. Studies show that the largest single use of absorbers this year will be to capture SO2 from power-plant flue gas. Adsorbers will be used by many chemical process industries (CPI) to capture volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and odors. A small, but fast growing industrial segment uses ozone and oxidants in combination with absorbers.
