New Smart Continuous Catalytic Reactors and their Process Networks finally need Best Catalysts
Catalysis moves, as any research area, towards interfaces. Technology conversion is a megatrend and thus catalysis merges with other disciplines to give way to new innovations. This special issue is about such ‘mergers’, i.e. interdisciplinary research.
Catalysis and flow (chemistry) have recently formed such a strong new scientific package. In the Chimica Oggi vol. 33(4) issue, I have questioned whether there is a Flow Catalysis (meaning a new transdiscipline) or “just” Catalysis in Flow (‘ordinary’ interdiscipline). Conclusion was that both aspects can be found. Not surprisingly, in the same way as flow chemistry is trans- and interdisciplinary.
