Multiphase reactors and processes play an indispensable role in process industries where their performance is one of the significant factor of the profitability of industry. Significant efforts and research have been devoted for understanding these reactors due to their complex interactions among the phases. However, with increasing cost, regulation requirements, competitiveness, new processes development and others, more efficient, intensified, reliable, controllable and predictable multiphase reactors are needed. To achieve these goals, more studies are required to advance the fundamental understanding of the conventional and novel multiphase reactors, their scale-up approaches, intensification strategies, model development and validation, benchmarking data for CFD validation and many others.
This special issue on “Multiphase Reaction Engineering, Reactors and Processes” aims to address the recent developments and advancement in the multiphase reactors. Topics include, but are not limited to:
- Fundamental understanding of the multiphase reactors
- Novel multiphase reactors
- Scale – up methodologies and strategies
- Reactor scale modeling
- CFD modeling and simulation
- Intensification of multiphase reactors

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. Processes 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 1100 CHF (Swiss Francs). Please note that for papers submitted after 30 June 2019 an APC of 1200 CHF applies. 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.
