Clever Characterisation for Smarter Formulation II - 6th November
Royal Society of Chemistry, Burlington House Burlington House, Piccadilly, Mayfair, London W1J 0BD, UK
Historically formualtion was seen as more of an art than a science, slowly through the application of colloid science combined with the principles of chemical processing and laterly through the use of good scientific practice such as statistical design of experiments, formulation has become a science and in many case now a well controlled engineering process.
However, due to the complexity of many formualtions this has been achieved through direct connection of recipes and processing conditions with required application properties, without understanding of the physical and chemical structures which give rise to these properties.
This meeting will showcase a growing number of new examples where the range of currently available characterisation techniques has demonstrated the controlling structural features in complex formulations.
The techniques covered in presentations and posters is planned to include: 3D electron microscopy, in-situ microscopy techniqued, X-ray tomography, AFM-IR, NMR, surface energy measurement, particle velocimetry.
