Abstract

All experts share the same view that future eminent breakthroughs will be made largely at the interfaces of the sciences and technologies. Technology merging is one of the megatrends which are forecasted to shape society and the economy of the future.I grew up scientifically in this “gap” and found myself from the first moment as a chemist among chemical engineers, mechanical engineers, and physicists. All these skills are needed for micro technology as a whole scientific package. The applications were as diverse as relating to the smallest motors, actuators, sensors, pumps, and microreactors, which was my topic. Lately, I helped to create this journal Green Processing and Synthesis which, first of all, crosses the borders of chemistry and chemical engineering. Yet and secondary, papers about material science, metallurgical technology, catalyst development, and more are included as well.One striking problem we experienced when making the journal was that too few experts on the “inter-disciplines” are available. For the journal, this means in practice that it is here and there difficult to find the right referees. For industry being active in a technology-merging business this means it might be difficult to recruit the right personnel and there is a danger to
