Exploring the Diversity The Canadian Journal of Chemical Engineering

Published: 14 Aug 2009

Introduction: This virtual issue of The Canadian Journal of Chemical Engineering collects several of our top articles published recently, as well as some highly cited older papers. The broad variety of themes covered in these manuscripts encompass fluid mechanics, microfluidics, biochemical engineering, process control, chemical reactors, mineral processing, colloids and surface sciences. Undoubtedly, this diversity of themes, interconnected through a few core areas, is what makes chemical engineering so rich and stimulating; to capture this variety of themes between the covers of a single scientific journal is one of the main goals of the CJChE editorial board.
