As an efficient process intensification strategy, microreactor technology offers many advantages compared to conventional batch reactors, such as enhanced mass and heat transfer rate, continuous operation, intrinsically safe, reduced reagents and solvent consumption, better process control, etc. These characteristics help to open up new opportunities for reactions and processes. Over the past decade, numerous efforts have been devoted to the design and exploration of this innovative technique. Remarkable progress has also been achieved in their applications, such as mixing, separation, chemicals synthesis, nanofabrication, emulsification, detection, clinical diagnostic devices, etc. Accordingly, this Special Issue seeks to showcase research papers, communications, review articles, and mini-reviews that focus on (1) novel designs, fabrication, integration, and scale-up strategies of microreactors, microdevices, or micromachines; (2) the application of microreactors as well as relevant reaction kinetics and mechanisms, including but not limited to chemicals synthesis, nanofabrication, particle formation, emulsification, detection, separation, etc.; and (3) experimental or numerical study of transport phenomena in microreactors.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 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 2600 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.
