Aims & Scope

Synthesis and Sintering aims to provide a platform for researchers to share their findings and insights on theoretical and experimental studies related to the synthesis and sintering of materials. The priority subjects and areas of interest for this journal include:

  1. Synthesis of Advanced Materials: The journal welcomes contributions focusing on the synthesis of advanced materials tailored for industrial applications. Various processing methodologies such as liquid-solid reactions, powder metallurgy, sol-gel processes, mechanical alloying, etc., are of particular interest.

  2. Design of Novel Materials: Manuscripts discussing the design and fabrication of novel materials, both as-synthesized and as-sintered, are encouraged. This includes but is not limited to metal matrix composites, ceramic matrix composites, polymer matrix composites, as well as complex materials such as MAX phases, MXenes, high entropy alloys, and intermetallics.

  3. Sintering Processes: The journal covers research on sintering processes used in the fabrication of industrial parts. This includes techniques such as pressureless sintering (PS), hot pressing (HP), spark plasma sintering (SPS), microwave sintering (MS), etc.

  4. Additive Manufacturing: Contributions related to additive manufacturing processes involving sintering are welcomed. Techniques like selective laser sintering (SLS), selective heat sintering (SHS), and binder jetting, which fuse powdered materials together to create complex 3D objects layer by layer, are of interest.

  5. Computer Modeling and Simulation: The journal encourages research on computer modeling and numerical simulation of materials during the sintering processes. This includes predicting physical behaviors such as heat transfer and thermal stresses in materials and devices.

Through its publication, Synthesis and Sintering seeks to advance the understanding of synthesis and sintering processes, promote the development of innovative materials with enhanced properties, and foster collaborations among researchers in materials science, chemistry, chemical engineering, physics, pharmacy, and related disciplines.
