Been founded in 1980, the scientific journal Tecnologia Quimica (abbreviated title TQ) it is a publication cuatrimestral of the Ministry of Superior, arbitrated Education and published in collaboration among Editions UO of the Universidad de Oriente and Facultad de Ingieneria Quimica y Agronomia (FIQA). It allows the access open to all their content. It has it considers the articles coming from servants preprints, as well as with the opening of the data and of breaking wind open review. It is inscribed in the National Registration of Seriate Publications with RNPS 2118 and ISSN: 2224-6185.

History of the Journal

The journal Tecnologia Quimica was founded in 1980. With the time it has gone evolved and adapting to the demands of the databases in which is inserted. It has a rhythm lasting four months, registered and approved as seriate national publication with the registration number RNPS 2118, ISSN 2224-6185. The emergence of the journal is very tied to the industrial development reached when being increased the industries of chemical processes and alimentary, like the sugar industry in the country and in particular in the oriental region. The Universidad de Oriente played a decisive paper as first university in the country in assuming the career of Industrial Chemical Engineering, for what this career is jointly founder with the Universidad de Oriente in the year 1947, later on other careers like Sugar Chemical expert and Chemical Sciences Physique supported the development of these industries. The TQ thought about from its beginnings like objective, to disclose the scientific production, the educational experiences and the works of professors' projects, investigators and other professionals in topics related with the development of the chemical engineering, fulfilling this way its mission of providing the publication and popularization of the works de investigation and of projects, the educational, scientific and technical experiences of the chemical engineering in the country and abroad, allowing the creation of an academic community. The first number of the RTQ was published in 1980 in support paper with technicians' taxes and Cuban specialists, but as it went being given to be known they began to receive taxes of other latitudes. In spite of some limitations that affected the printed publication between 1990 and 1997, the journal TQ maintained a high prestige in the community of national engineers and international chemical for the dedication and concern of the Council of Writing of the same one and the dedication of many directive of the Universidad de Oriente to maintain alive the publication, it is for this reason that starting from the year 1998 the journal pass to the digital formed and to achieve that the numbers of the TQ were available in digital format, were proceeded to the digitalization of the numbers in support paper, completing this way most of the volumes in digital format, continuing until the present in that support.


Theoretical works are published and of unpublished practical results on topics of Chemical Engineering and Engineering of Foods, related with the study of technologies, processes and apparatuses of the industries chemistry and alimentary. Topics are also accepted that try of the teaching of the Chemical Engineering, computer science applied to the Chemical Engineering, mechanical projects of chemical and biotechnical teams, engineering of the materials, economy of the chemical industry, controls of chemical processes and other topics considered as interesting, useful and convenient of agreement with the experience.


To provide the publication and popularization of the investigation works and of projects, the educational, scientific and technical experiences of the chemical engineering in the country and abroad, allowing the creation of an academic community.


To disclose the scientific production, the educational experiences and the works of professors' projects, investigators and other professionals in topics related with the development of the chemical engineering.


Journal Tecnologia Quimica has the purpose of motivating the specialists to develop and to perfect the investigations and to give solution to the problems, as well as to increase the knowledge in the branches that occupy them.
