Realizing Reformulation

– A symposium on surface and materials chemistry

  • Date: Wed, 2014-10-22 – Fri, 2014-10-24
  • Location: Lund
  • Country: Sweden

Formulations are advanced mixtures of chemicals, designed to achieve or improve functional performance. Formulation science is highly interdisciplinary, encompassing surface and colloid science, material science, chemical engineering, biotechnology and so on. The challenges are ubiquitous in industry, where examples include formulating a pharmaceutical drug into a pill that dissolves in the right place and at the right speed in the body, formulating pulp to make efficient use of cellulose fibres in paper, formulating a paint that also has antimicrobial functions, or formulating a freezable low-fat mayonnaise. The challenges that one faces in these and other applications are often very closely related to fundamental problems in in surface- colloid- and material- chemistry.

2014 Symposium on surface and material chemistry is devoted to the broad topic Realizing Reformulation. The focus lies on generic aspects of formulations that are relevant to many different applications, and the scientific themes include:

• Concepts for reformulation
• Triggered transitions to control functionality
• Soft Matter Interfaces
• Formulation interactions with biosystems and biomoleculesE014635

The program include international and national leading experts from academia and industry together with young researcher from Swedish universities. The Akzo Nobel prize winners will also be presented.

Scientific contribution
Considerable time will be allocated to poster presentations and we invite such contributions from both academia and industry.

Venue
The meeting will take place at Lund University in Lund, Sweden.
