Separation and purification are major steps in most industrial processes. The development of new products often requires the design and establishment of new separation processes. In the case of life science industries, for example, the evolution of the pharmaceutical industry towards biopharmaceuticals has led to many innovations in chromatographic separation technologies. Similar challenges have arisen with the need to recover critical metals. Recycling or extraction of these metals from inorganic chemistry by-products previously considered as waste allows the purification and concentration of highly diluted target species in complex matrices. To meet these challenges, innovations in chromatography processes can be implemented at different scales, i.e., at the stationary phase scale, at the column scale, and at the scale of process architecture. The development of new, more selective phases, which allow for better ageing, in a material process approach, is essential. As far as the column is concerned, modeling and instrumentation development leads to a better understanding of the limiting steps and a better control of the process. In addition, many bottlenecks can be overcome through multi-column, continuous, or sequential process architectures or through hybrid processes.
This Special Issue entitled "New Frontiers in Chromatographic Separation Technology" aims to give an overview of the recent developments in chromatographic techniques to meet new industrial challenges. Progress in liquid chromatography will be more specifically addressed.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
- New stationary phases for life sciences
- Specific functional groups grafted on resins for metal ion/species separation
- Modeling and instrumentation of columns
- Specific column technologies (fluidized bed, etc.)
- Multicolumn processes (continuous or sequential)
- Hybrid ion exchange processes (electrodeionization, electro-regeneration, etc.)
Original research papers as well as reviews are welcome.

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 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 2400 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.
