When discussing optimization and improvements to costly and time-consuming purification processes "trapping" columns can be an alternative to fractionation.

When discussing optimization and improvements to costly and time‑consuming purification processes “trapping” columns can be an alternative to fractionation. However, when trapping, the compound has to be recovered from the column and transferred into its powder form. This requires consideration of chemical properties, as well as technical realization. This article demonstrates this complexity based on examples of the flow schemes and the software workflow.
