IEX 2008 - conference papers

This item first appeared in 2008

Cambridge, 6-11 July 2008

Ion exchange is one of the basic separation and purification technologies of modern industry. The SCI IEX Conferences began in 1954 and have been established as one of the major international conferences for the ion exchange community. These unique IEX meetings provide the opportunity, every four years, for the ion exchange manufacturing and service companies, end user and researchers to present papers on all aspects of the theory and practice of ion exchange and adsorbents and to discuss current practice and future industrial developments.
