Soft interfacial materials: from fundamentals to formulation

Event dates: 
Monday, October 12, 2015 to Tuesday, October 13, 2015

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.
