Synthesis and Sintering
Synthesis and Sintering is an international, open access, and peer-reviewed journal which publishes high-quality original research and review papers on all aspects of theoretical and experimental studies in the fields of synthesis and sintering. This journal encourages manuscripts reporting unique and innovative contributions in materials science, chemistry, chemical engineering, physics, pharmacy, and other related fields. Manuscripts dealing with scientific approaches to the mechanisms, thermodynamics, and kinetics of synthesis and sintering processes, synthesis of powder materials, and advanced sintering routes are welcomed. In addition, novel as-synthesized or as-sintered materials with remarkable properties and potential for industrial applications are encouraged. These may include but are not limited to, metals and alloys, ceramics, polymers, intermetallics, and different composite and complex materials. Synthesis and Sintering is published four times a year.
Priority subjects and areas of interest are:
· Synthesis of advanced materials for industrial applications at room and high temperatures with different types of processing methodologies such as liquid-solid reactions, powder metallurgy, sol-gel processes, mechanical alloying, etc.;
· Design of novel as-synthesized/as-sintered materials such as metal matrix composites, ceramic matrix composites, polymer matrix composites, and other complex materials including MAX phases, high entropy alloys, intermetallics, etc.;
· Manufacturing of industrial parts using sintering processes which comprise compacting and forming solid materials by heat and/or pressure without melting them such as pressureless sintering, hot pressing, spark plasma sintering, microwave sintering, etc.;
· Computer modeling and numerical simulation of materials during the sintering processes to predict the physical behavior e.g. the heat transfer and thermal stresses in the materials and devices.
