Difference between Distillation and fractionation?
January 04, 2013 12:45PM
Distillation is a method of separating mixtures based on differences in volatility of components in a boiling liquid mixture.
Fractionation is a separation process in which a certain quantity of a mixture (solid, liquid, solute, suspension or i) is divided up in a number of smaller quantities (fractions) in which the isotope composition varies according to a gradient.
