This volume is based on different aspects of chemical technology that are associated with research and the development of theories for chemical engineers, helping to bridge the gap between classical analysis and modern, real-life applications. Taking an interdisciplinary approach, the authors present the current state-of-the-art technology in key materials with an emphasis on the rapidly growing technologies.

Alexander V. Vakhrushev, DSc, is a professor at the M.T. Kalashnikov Izhevsk State Technical University in Izhevsk, Russia, where he teaches theory, calculating, and design of nano- and microsystems. He is also the Chief Researcher of the Department of Information-Measuring Systems of the Institute of Mechanics of the Ural Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences and Head of the Department of Nanotechnology and Microsystems of Kalashnikov Izhevsk State Technical University. He has over 400 publications to his name, including monographs, articles, reports, reviews, and patents.
Reza Haghi, PhD, is a research assistant at the Institute of Petroleum Engineering at Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, Scotland, United Kingdom. Dr. Haghi has published several papers in international peer-reviewed scientific journals and has published several papers in conference proceedings, technical reports, and lecture notes. Dr. Haghi is expert in the development and application of spectroscopy techniques for monitoring hydrate and corrosion risks and developed techniques for early detection of gas hydrate risks. He conducted integrated experimental modeling in his studies and extended his research to monitoring system to pH and risk of corrosion.
J. V. de Julián-Ortiz, PhD, was a postdoctoral scholarship holder at the Institute of Computational Chemistry of the University of Girona, Spain, at the Molecular Engineering group directed by Prof. Ramon Carbó-Dorca. He worked as a researcher of the Network of Research Centers of Tropical Diseases, Faculty of Pharmacy-University of Valencia, Spain. He worked in the design and molecular dynamics of structure-directing agents for the synthesis of zeotype materials at the Institute of Chemical Technology—Spanish Scientific Council (CSIC)—Polytechnic University of Valencia at the group of Prof. Avelino Corma. From 2010 to 2015 he was part-time professor at the University of Valencia and project technician at several private foundations, co-financed by a grant from the Spanish Ministry of Innovation.
