Soft interfacial materials: from fundamentals to formulation
The science of soft interfaces (lipid membranes, emulsions, particle‐stabilised droplets etc) is rapidly moving into an era of predictive capability that allows the design and development of advanced materials to be based on secure scientific knowledge. The meeting will not only address fundamental science, focussing on generic design principles for self‐organisation and interfacial structure, but also explore the resulting prospects for 'informed formulation' of new and improved industrial products.
Royal Society discussion meeting organised by Professor Michael Cates FRS, Professor John Seddon, Dr Nicholas Brooks, Dr Paul Clegg and Professor Alex Lips.
Session 1: Functional amphiphiles and lipids
Session 2: Membranes and delivery
Session 3: Particles and proteins at interfaces
Session 4: Unconventional emulsions and multiphase gels
Registration for the meeting is free.
A poster session will be held throughout the meeting alongside the schedule of presentations. To submit a poster please email a title, 200-word abstract and list of authors to the Royal Society events team at email@example.com no later than Friday 31 July 2015. The scientific organisers will make a selection based on the abstracts received. Please note spaces are limited. Abstracts submitted after the deadline may be considered, subject to availability.
