About the book

Solvation is a physical process, solvation is the word meaning of separation of compounds depending on the selectivity of the solvent and solvent power whether the solvent green or organic solvent, solvation can act as a step in the crystallization and purification of the selected separated product, solvation technique divided into different type depending on the target, solvation techniques can be applied in water treatment for contaminations removals such as phenols and de-salination, petroleum refining, lube oil production and recycling, and paraffin wax separation and fractionation, purification and recycling, solvation depend on four main parameters: solvent to feed ratio, type of and characterization of the solvent, solvent power and temperature of the solvation, solvation technique can be evaluated with yield percentage and characterization of the separated fractions, solvation factors such as solubility and solvation energy can be studied theoretically by computational chemistry programs such as material studio, cosmo and gaussian.
