Industrial Chemistry

The Industrial Chemistry area supplements De Gruyter’s established chemistry portfolio. This is one of its most recent portfolio areas along with Materials Science.

The industrial chemicals sector produces chemical products for different business sectors such as the plastics, food, automotive, mechanical engineering, glass and construction materials industries. Amongst other areas, De Gruyter focuses on catalyst and process development, process engineering and chemical reaction engineering. The portfolio of international authors, which is published exclusively in English, is geared towards current cross-sector technologies and application markets.

The increasingly interdisciplinary approach and the demand for digital formats such as Open Access and databases play just an equally important role as the further development of existing formats.

The Graduate Textbook series is one example of this: relevant topics, such as the energy and raw material basis as well as innovations for linking production systems are considered here from a global, multidisciplinary perspective, including with the necessary practical orientation. This new format is therefore particularly aimed at masters’ degree students, young professionals and scientists who are looking for an introduction to the topic.

De Gruyter’s Industrial Chemistry portfolio is supplemented by monographs, manuals and journals – in both digital and printed form.

“I greatly appreciate De Gruyter as a publisher and I am impressed by De Gruyter´s long tradition in the sciences, their high standards for publication and their innovations in e-book and e-journals. I have had a position at Karolinska Institutet for 50 years, including in its Nobel Assembly for many years. Throughout, I have had many publishing contacts in these and other positions, but in all contexts De Gruyter is among those that stand out in quality and persistence!”

Prof. Dr. Hans Jörnvall, Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm
