Micro-process engineering is the science of conducting chemical or physical processes inside conduits or other structures with sub-millimeter dimensions, typically, inside channels with characteristic dimensions of less than 1 mm. These processes are carried out in continuous-flow mode, as opposed to batch production, allowing a throughput high enough to make micro-process engineering an efficient tool for chemical production.
This Special Issue of Micromachines aims to be a forum for scientists and engineers from academia and industry to present and discuss recent developments in the field of micro-equipment design. We invite papers that tackle, either numerically (computational fluid dynamics studies) or experimentally, problems concerning the design of micro-equipment. Contributions may focus on, but not exclusively, problems associated with the design and construction of novel micro-equipment (e.g., micro-mixers, micro-reactors, micro-heat exchangers) and the use of non-intrusive experimental techniques.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Micromachines is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
