The McBain Medal is an annual award by the Colloid and Surface Chemistry Group of the SCI and the Colloid and Interface Chemistry Group of the RSC to honour a younger scientist who has made a meritorious contribution to colloid and interface science.

The McBain Medal is an annual award by the Colloid and Interface Chemistry Group of the RSC and the Colloid and Surface Chemistry Group of the SCI to honour a younger scientist who has made a meritorious contribution to colloid & interface science.

This one day meeting will incorporate the award of the McBain medal to Prof Adam Lee, who is a Professor of

Physical Chemistry at Cardiff University and an EPSRC Leadership Fellow. His PhD is from the University of

Cambridge, UK, where he studied with R M Lambert. After a Post-Doc in Cambridge, Adam was appointed to lectureships at Hull (1997) and York (2003), where he co-founded the new surface chemistry and catalysis group, before moving to Cardiff in 2009.

His research spans the breadth of colloid and surface chemistry including new

surfactant-templated architectures, spectroscopic techniques for studying chemical

dynamics at metal and metal oxide surfaces, the application of synchrotron radiation to in-situ and time-resolved studies of surface chemical processes and the surface

modification of novel biomaterials.

This meeting will be suitable for academia and industry, in particular researchers with interests in chemical engineering aspects. The breadth of the meeting will also make it suitable for students who wish to get an insight into the range of current research.
