The Journal of Organic Chemistry (JOC) & Organic Process Research & Development (OPR&D) are announcing a joint Special Issue: Excellence in Industrial Organic Synthesis 2024. This unique compilation will feature work from research teams across the chemical enterprise, from the broad field of industrial process chemistry but also presenting academic results that are immediately relevant to industrial applications.

Research that capitalizes on industry-academic collaborations and work from start-up companies is welcome, especially strategies that address the question of how the chemical industry can develop next-generation value chains and processes for a sustainable future to tackle challenges in raw materials supply, energy demand, pollution prevention, and greenhouse emissions.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Synthetic methodologies
  • Pharmaceutical development
  • Fine and specialty chemicals
  • Petrochemicals
  • Polymer chemistry and materials
  • Agricultural chemicals
  • Green and sustainable chemistry based on renewables and biocatalytic processes

This Special Issue follows the 2019 Edition and 2021 Edition of this series.

Submissions are due by August 1, 2024.
