Protein and Amino-Acids

Protein are complex nitrogenous organic compounds which are essential for physical and mental growth and development of body. They are defined as long chain polymer of α – amino acids bounded by peptide linkage. Therefore, protein are polypeptides of high molecular weight ranging from 5000 to many millions.

Relative Volatility

In order to separate binary mixtures using distillation process, there must be differences in volatilities of the components. The greater the difference, the easier it is to do so. A measure for this is termed relative volatility. Volatility is a way of expressing relationship between components of vapor Ya and that of liquid Xa in equilibrium. It is defined as ratio of partial pressure of component to mole fraction of component in liquid.
