McBain Medal Award Lecture (12 December 2011, SCI HQ, London, UK)
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 & interface science.
This one day meeting incorporated the award of the McBain medal to Prof Adam Lee, who is a Professor of Physical Chemistry at the 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.
