15 April 2011, 09.30 - 17.30
Organised by SCI's Colloid & Surface Chemistry Group and the RSC's Colloid & Interface Science Group

Synopsis

The Rideal lecture is an annual award given by SCI’s Colloid and Surface Chemistry Group and the RSC’s Colloid and Interface Science Group. Colloid science principles have been successfully applied in a wide range of industries involving manufacture, processing and formulating many materials as aqueous dispersions.

This Symposium aims to bring together a group of colloid scientists all of whom have played leading roles in understanding the nature and properties of fluid-fluid interfaces and such formed between aqueous solutions and both hydrophilic and hydrophobic materials of all kinds by using neutrons.

Who should attend?

This conference is aimed at anyone interested in colloid science as well as rheologists and formulators, scientists in the agriculture, food, coatings, pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries will also find this conference very informative.

Bursaries

SCI and RSC are pleased to offer complimentary registration to students. To apply for a student bursary, please complete the registration form. Bursaries will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
