The slides of the oral presentation at the 18th International Conference on Chemical Education in Istanbul in August 2004 ( http://www.18icce.org/ ) are provided. The title of this talk was Separation Problems Using Mathematica. The work presented focus on solving distillation and liquid liquid extraction problems using Mathematica. We show how to compute residue curve maps for reacting and non reacting systems. We discuss how to use Mathematica to compute the McCabe and Thiele and the Ponchon and Savarit diagrams for binary distillation. A problem on multicomponent distillation is also be presented. Finally, we show how Mathematica can be used to perform liquid-liquid extraction calculations with one and two feeds using the Hunter and Nash Diagram and the McCabe and Thiele Method.
