The Simulated Moving Bed (SMB) concept has been applied to the separation of different mixtures as a continuous counter current separation process, avoiding several problems related with solid motion. The aim of this work is to present some relevant examples of SMB separations corresponding to the two major ages in the use of the SMB concept, here ...
In this paper, a new state feedback scheme is proposed for the control of simulated moving beds with strongly nonlinear isotherms. The proposed scheme offers a unified framework enabling different performance criteria to be improved according to the active production constraints (achieving low cost, improving efficiency, respecting deadlines) that ...

Aqueous solutions of DL-β-phenylalanine from a biotechnological process have been desalted by simulated moving bed preparative liquid-chromatography (SMB LC). During the design of a laboratory-scale continuous procedure four kinds of reversed-phase polymeric resin were compared. A suitable adsorbent was chosen and operating conditions were subseque...
A method, combining laboratory scale equilibrium and elution experiments, simplified model based and heuristic rules, as well as sophisticated dynamic simulation was applied to design the separation of a two-component steroid crude mixture in a given laboratory-scale Simulated Moving Bed unit. The adsorption equilibrium isotherms of the pure compon...
