Aims and Scope

Green Processing and Synthesis is a bimonthly, peer-reviewed journal that provides up-to-date research both on fundamental as well as applied aspects of innovative green process development and chemical synthesis, giving an appropriate share to industrial views. The contributions are cutting edge, high-impact, authoritative, and provide both pros and cons of potential technologies. Green Processing and Synthesis provides a platform for scientists and engineers, especially chemists and chemical engineers, but is also open for interdisciplinary research from other areas such as physics, materials science, or catalysis.


  • Flow chemistry, microreaction technology and microfluidics
  • Process intensification
  • Green chemistry
  • Nanosciences for chemical engineering
  • Chemicals from biomass: biofuels and intermediates
