Professor Daan Frenkel was the 2017 Rideal Lecturer. The Rideal Lecture is awarded jointly by the RSC Colloid and Interface Science Group and SCI Colloid and Surface Chemistry Group, to recognise a sustained and distinguished contribution to colloid and interface science in the UK (photograph below).

A one-day symposium was held at Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge on Tuesday 4th April 2017. The symposium featured contributions by Willem Kegel, Richard Sear, Zorana Zeravcic, Roel Dullens, Erika Eiser and Rosalind Allen and finished with the Rideal Lecture.

You can become a member by joining one of the two groups:

SCI Colloid & Surface Chemistry Group (CSCG).  http://www.soci.org/Membership-and-Networks/Technical-Groups/Colloid-and-Surface-Chemistry-Group

RSC Colloid & Interface Science Group (CISG). http://www.rsc.org/membership/networking/InterestGroups/colloidscience/

The former is open to SCI members only. The latter is open both to RSC members and associates AND to scientists and engineers who belong, either, to a chartered professional or learned body from outside the chemical sciences, or to another chemical society with whom the RSC has entered into an international partnership agreement approved by RSC Council. Non-RSC members of CISG pay RSC a small annual fee to cover administration and postage.
