Abstract: There is a trapping effect on the solute in the simulated moving bed (SMB) with solvent gradient. As the eluotropic strength of the liquid in zone II (between the extract-port and feed-port) is higher than that in zone III (between the feed-port and the raffinate-port), the solute can move forward in zone II but backward in zone III to be trapped in the two zones consequently. On this basis, a pseudo-SMB was proposed to separate the medium retained solute from a ternary mixture by selectively trapping the medi…
