Journal of Flow Chemistry

In 2010, the Flow Chemistry Society was formed by internationally recognized flow chemistry experts to unite and represent those who are actively working on this rapidly developing field. One of the particular missions of the Society is to promote the communication between the scientists both in academic field and industry and rapidly deliver new knowledge making widely available for the entire chemistry community. Major element of this effort is the pioneering combination of the electronic media (internet, Web 2.0 technologies) and the traditional printed publications (journals/books). The Web 2.0 technology allows electronic access of the technical videos related to flow chemistry featured in publications or as part of a tutorial. The first step into this direction is the foundation of a Flow Chemistry Journal containing invited reviews, common articles, short communications as well as letters to the editors from the flow chemistry and related fields.

The Flow Chemistry Society entered into strategic partnership with a Kluwer’s affiliate in Budapest (Akadémiai Kiadó) to launch the Journal of Flow Chemistry. The Journal was introduced to the scientific community at the Flow Chemistry Europe Conference in Munich, Germany in March, 2011. The Journal was launched at the ACS National meeting (August 28-September 1, 2011) held in Denver, Colorado, USA.

The primary objective of the Flow Chemistry Journal is to stimulate the development and advancement of flow chemistry for the benefit and progress of the chemistry community. The Journal provides a high-level scientific forum for rapid publication of the latest results of flow chemistry and serve the most important information on scientific events, technology developments, products, etc. for the fast growing flow chemistry community. The main focus of the Journal is flow chemistry in inorganic, organic, analytical and process chemistry in the academic research as well as in applied research and development in the pharmaceutical, agrochemical, fine-chemical, petro-chemical, fragrance industry. However, the Journal also includes relevant flow chemistry aspects of material science, catalysis, green chemistry, nanotechnology, biotechnology latest development on flow instruments (engineering, automation), as well as theoretical and IT related topics.
