Simulated Moving Bed (SMB) chromatography is promising
process which is continuous chromatography like True Moving
Bed(TMB) chromatography using counter-current flow.
SMB process can provide some advantages such as high productivity, high efficiency
and low energy consumption. Also, SMB chromatography can be applied to the
separation of binary mixture. With these favorable characteristics of SMB, it is
evaluated positively in petrochemical, pharmaceutical, and fine chemical industries.
SMB research was investigated deeply in order to develop separation process in Korea.
Through this research, SMB process will be regarded as an important technology in
petrochemical and fine chemistry industries contributing to the production of high
value added materials.

Our lab has been successfully used for biological products such as organic acids, sugars, amino acids, and fatty
acids purification.
