Some are aimed at general formulation - everything from paints to shampoos to pharmaceuticals:
Some are aimed specifically at pharmaceuticals:
Due to the vast field of application of formulation science, it is possible to learn about formulation under a number of headings, such as: colloid science, physical chemistry, chemical engineering, galenic, Pharmaceutical formulation, quality control, analytical chemistry etc...
Professional societies that have dedicated formulation subject groups include:
- The French Chemical Society (Societe Francaise de Chimie, Paris, France)
- The American Chemical Society (ACS, U.S.A.)
Other societies or institutions that work closely with the Formulation Science and Technology Group include:
