Multi-scale analysis and simulation of chemical processing and reactions have received unprecedented attention in recent years; however, measurement technology focused on multi-scale structures, particularly on meso-scale phenomena, has not been sufficiently addressed.  This volume of Advances in Chemical Engineering focuses on the "Characterization of Flow, Particles and Interfaces" to alert the chemical engineering community to this challenging issue presenting six meso-scale measurement technologies.
