This Special Issue, “Analytical Control Strategies for Process Chemists” will consist of full-length research articles focusing on analytical tools/techniques that assist in the development of control strategies for specific process chemistry challenges—for example: SFC, LC, MS, PAT, NMR, trace-level estimation of metal impurities, etc.—as well as articles showcasing fully integrated processes with analytical controls. If you do not feel that you have work that is amenable to a research article, a Review or Perspective article may be possible. For Reviews and Perspectives, we ask that you discuss the proposed topic with us for approval by sending an inquiry to

Organic Process Research & Development is a journal that serves as an authoritative source of scalable procedures for synthetic chemists. As such, it is a communication tool between industrial chemists and chemists working in universities and research institutes. It reports original work from the broad field of industrial process chemistry but also presents academic results that are relevant, or potentially relevant, to industrial applications. Process chemistry is the science that enables the safe, environmentally benign, and ultimately economical manufacturing of organic compounds that are required in larger amounts to help address the needs of society.
