Particles at Interfaces, Royal Armouries, Leeds, 7-9 September 2016

The RSC/SCI Colloids Group organised a meeting for both academia and industry colleagues to link the latest research on interfacially-active particles to current and future applications in the captivating and inspiring atmosphere of the Royal Armouries Museum in Leeds.  

Adsorption and desorption of particles at liquid-liquid and liquid-gas interfaces have formed an expanding part of colloidal science and technology over the last 15 years. Their applications as emulsion and foam stabilisers are starting to find their way into various formulated products. This meeting will address several different aspects of this topic, including the synthesis of interfacially-active particles, the characterisation of their behaviour at interfaces, their use as Pickering emulsifiers and as building blocks for functional materials.


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

SCI Colloid & Surface Chemistry Group (CSCG).

RSC Colloid & Interface Science Group (CISG).

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.

For information on how to become a member of the Society of Chemical Industry (SCI) or Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) please see the links below: 

Non-members of RSC wishing to join CISG should contact the RSC Membership Dept. (contact details at, asking to join the Colloid & Interface Science Interest Group, only, and mentioning their own affiliation.  The membership administration fee is £10 currently. In case of difficulty please contact a member of the Joint Committee.
