Flow Chemistry Society

The Flow Chemistry Society was formed by internationally recognized flow chemistry experts in 2010 to unite and represent those who are actively working on this rapidly developing field. The Society is dedicated to enhance the public appreciation of flow chemistry and its integration into everyday practice throughout the world by delivering the latest knowledge and making it available for the entire chemistry community.

Conferences in 2020/2021:

  • April, 2021, Flow Chemistry Congress 2021, Boston, MA, USA (35% discount to FCS members)
    Amid the growing concerns over the global outbreak of the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, and in light of our growing safety concerns for our attendees, the Society has decided to postpone the Flow Chemistry Congress 2020 event to April 2021. Updates on the exact time and date will be provided soon. The conference venue remains the same, The Wyndham Boston Beacon Hill Hotel, Boston, MA

Supported conferences and courses in 2020/2021:

  • IMRET16: December 5-8, 2021, Melbourne, Australia
    Due to the ever worsening COVID-19 situation the organizing committee has had to make the difficult decision to postpone IMRET 16 until 5 - 8 December 2021. The conference venue will still be the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre in Melbourne, Australia.

Dr. Timothy Noel (TU/e) has become the new EiC of the journal

The Flow Chemistry Society has named Dr. Timothy Noel from Eindhoven University of Technology as the new Editor in Chief of Journal of Flow Chemistry, joined by 3 new Associate Editors: Dr. Jean-Christophe Monbaliu (ULiège), Dr. Norbert Kockmann (TU Dortmund) and Dr. Shawn Collins (UMontréal).

Journal of Flow Chemistry 2018 impact factor announced: 2,277

The Journal of Flow Chemistry, the periodical of the Flow Chemistry Society published by Akadémiai Kiadó, was selected for coverage in the Science Citation Index in February, 2013. The quarterly journal was launched in August 2011, which means that the official impact factor was reached within two years.

The Journal of Flow Chemistry, however, is a groundbreaking initiative publishing paper on the fast growing field of continuous operations of chemical reactions that offer numerous benefits and advantages including safe, fast, economic, green and sustainable synthesis.

On The Future of Flow Chemistry

C. Oliver Kappe

Today, the Journal of Flow Chemistry published a special all open access perspectives issue on the "Future of Flow Chemistry". This dedicated issue of 100 pages containes 16 articles written by leading experts in the field and discusses advances and visions on flow chemistry related to a variety of topics.

It is our greatest pleasure to inform you that Dr. Timothy Noel (Associate Professor at the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), who has joined the Flow Chemistry Society in 2013, of which he is to-day one of the most esteemed and active members, has been awarded the DECHEMA Prize 2017 in recognition of his pioneering work on continuous photochemical conversion in microfluidic systems.

We are happy to announce that in recognition of his outstanding achievements towards the field of chemistry, Dr. Ferenc Darvas, president of the Flow Chemistry Society has been awarded an ACS Fellowship.

The Graduate Textbook on Flow Chemistry is available

"Flow chemistry fills the gap in graduate education by covering chemistry and reaction principles along with the current practice, including examples of relevant commercial reaction, separation, automation, and analytical equipment. The Editors of Flow Chemistry are commended for having taken the inititative to bring together experts from the field. It promisies to become a useful study text and as well as reference for the graduate students and practitioners of flow chemistry."
