The Formulation Science and Technology group (FSTG) of the Royal Society of Chemistry is organising a conference on Formulating Functional Films and Coatings. See the menu on the right for Abstract Submission, Details on Exhibiting, Programme, Posters and Registration.
This will be held in Burlington House, Piccadilly, London on Friday April 24th 2015
There is a lot of talk about smart and functional materials as a new / unique materials at present, however in reality most coatings have always achieved multi-functional properties and hence had to overcome significant formulation challenges to get the optimum balance of properties and it is these skills which are now allowing people to add in the headline properties that are "smart". We are planning to have 5 themes through the day - additive, sensing, bio, energy and responsive.
The nature of this area is such that expertise does not reside in one sector but across many sectors as well as both in industry and academia. The meeting will provide an opportunity for industrialists to learn both from peers in other industries, but also from academics who are providing knowledge of the fundamental science and for academics to gain insight into key industrial challenges.
