Development of High Performance Micro Rectification Equipment for Analytical and Preparative Applications
In this contribution it is reported about the realization of efficient micro rectification equipment (MRA), which can be operated intermittently or continuously and be used both for analytical as well as for preparative separations of mixtures of liquid substances. Different binary systems were separated. A theoretical separation stage number of 12 was obtained together with a height equivalent to one theoretical plate of 1.08 cm. Compared to the state of microtechnology this can be regarded as an excellent progress.
