About this Research Topic
We are delighted to present this inaugural “Advances and Reviews” Research Topic. The Microfluidic Engineering and Process Intensification section of Frontiers in Chemical Engineering solicits Original Research Articles, Perspectives, and Reviews on all aspects of the engineering of microfluidics, the design of microreactors, including modelling, and their testing together with the development of micro-flow processes and reactions from an engineering point of view. The articles should cover topics that have seen significant development or progress in recent years, with comprehensive depth and a balanced perspective. We invite authors to present a complete overview of the “state-of-the-art” or new reports also with a focus on process intensification (PI) equipment.
With this collection, we also wish to spark a multidisciplinary discussion on:
• Different schools of thought or controversies
• Fundamental concepts, current applications, issues, and problems
• Current research gaps
• Potential developments in the field.
Authors may also contribute with Mini-Reviews that offer a succinct and clear summary of the topic, allowing readers to get up-to-date on new developments and/or emerging concepts.
Keywords: Process Intensification, Microfluidic Engineering, Microreactors, Micro-Flow Processes, Microreactors Modeling
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
