Molecular distillation is a distillation process done under high vacuum. The very short distance the vapor travels before condensing ensures minimal to no loss due to surface hold-up of the vapor and is an immediate release from vapor to condenser surface. This distillation process is classified as short path distillation and is also referred to as molecular distillation due to the minimal vapor/liquid interface. The technique and equipment are typically used to purify substances with low volatility and/or temperature sensitivity.
Molecular Distillation Applications:
1.Thermal separation of heat sensitive chemical compounds.
2.The purification of organic synthetic material.
3.The separation of effective components from the biological extracting solution.
4.The recycling of industrial waste.
5.Remove toxic substances in the food industry.
6.The organic compounds’ decoloring, and eliminate the unusual smell.
7.High precision to remove residual solvent in chemical compound.
