vol. 8 no. 1 & 2 (2008)

Welcome to the 8th edition of ASEAN Journal of Chemical Engineering, in the form of E-journal. As you see, the appearance of this journal is slightly different from the previous edition. The Scientific Committee of RSCE has decided that ASEAN Journal of Chemical Engineering is E-journal since 2008, and the front cover feature has to be slightly changed into more chemical engineering picture. Although the appearance has changed, basically the “spirit” of ASEAN Journal of Chemical Engineering feature is still conserved as in the previous editions. The current edition publishes eight papers from various areas of chemical engineering: catalytic reaction and kinetics, adsorption, distillation as well as material science. Incoming papers were from Indonesia, Malaysia and Philippine. We invite you all as member of ASEAN University network to participate in publishing your paper in the forthcoming edition.

Best regards,
