This book addresses the diffusion of matter in conventional media, such as in gases, liquids, membranes, crystalline and porous solids, starting with stochastic diffusion, followed by the study of mass diffusion from characteristic mechanisms. The chapters are transdisciplinary in nature., presenting problems that go beyond technique to establish dialogic relationships with other fields of knowledge. After the problem statement, the theoretical foundation is presented, followed by the technical solution of the problem. This structure allows the use of the book in its entirety or in parts, because the work was idealized as a textbook for a mass transfer discipline, as well as support material, since the chapters can be used individually in other disciplines in the academic universe, as well as in sectors that operate in transformation processes, in a multidisciplinary way, as well as the statement of the problem, in another area of expertise or knowledge other than Chemical Engineering.

The content of the book is the fruit of the last 12 years in which the fluid mechanics module was taught in Brazil, in Colombia, in the United States and the United Kingdom. Along this journey, it was increasingly observed that the available literature was extremely long and that sometimes it focused on purely mathematical concepts and at other times it was superficial and, to a certain extent, too pragmatic. It then remained for the reader to have long hours of study to complete each module normally presented in fluid mechanics courses.. However, in various undergraduate and graduate courses, the student rarely attends only the fluid mechanics module, and in this way it was observed the difficulty of the student in complementing the subject addressed in the classroom. This work intends to fill this gap., bringing to the reader all the mathematical rigor with physical interpretations of the analyzed situations.

Alexis de Tocqueville, contemplating emerging technology in America, in the middle of the century 19, summarized a good governance premise: “a new world calls for new policies”. Today, to use a very close reference, the movement to adapt São Paulo state universities to the demands of the new times could not come from just one institution, in isolation. It was unanimous, thus, the decision of its Council of Rectors (Crossp), in the sense of undertaking a joint study, of the three universities, on policies to be adopted and define the ideal digital basis for measurement, registration and dissemination of your academic performance.

Sugarcane has attracted a lot of interest for its potential as a viable renewable energy crop. Although the use of sugarcane juice for ethanol production has been in practice for years, a new focus on the use of the fibrous product known as bagasse for the production of renewable fuels and bio-based chemicals is growing. The success of these efforts and the development of new sugarcane varieties could greatly increase the use of sugarcane and sugarcane biomass as fuels, while increasing the sustainability and competitiveness of the industry.

Mass transfer is present in several processes, from the simplest, like dissolving sugar in a cup of coffee, even the most complex, like those present in the chemical industries, petrochemicals and pharmaceuticals, in the control of pollution and drying of cereals. Anyway, in any process where you want to separate or add a certain component in a given mixture.

This book seeks to show the importance of Chemical Engineering and how it is present in people's daily lives. The intention is to be an introductory book in which chemical formulas and mathematical equations are left for another opportunity, aiming to clarify aspects about the formation of the chemical engineer. Seek-se, therefore, understand Chemical Engineering through areas and fields of activity of its professional, as well as the products and services arising from its activities. In addition, there is a concern to contextualize the profession through the presentation of a little of the world and national history of the Chemical Industry and Chemical Engineering, as well as the responsibilities and skills desired by the chemical engineer, highlighting the importance of Ethics as a guide for their actions.
