        This article describes a novel application of high-throughput   experimentation, namely in the field of liquid mixture separation   through adsorption. Two separate setups are designed and   extensively used to study multicomponent liquid phase adsorption:   the first setup performs batch adsorption in static conditions to   obtain adsorption isotherms while the latter carries out   breakthrough experiments in dynamic conditions, which yield   multicomponent breakthrough curves. The obtained data serves as   an indicator of the separative qualities of an adsorbent exposed   to a particular liquid mixture. The reliability of the obtained   measurements is assessed using different validation techniques.   Case studies pertaining to the competitive adsorption of binary   alkane/alkene/aromatic mixtures on faujasites complete the   validation process. A new model for batch adsorption isotherms is   proposed based on the equilibrium conditions in liquid   phase.
