Thanks to those who joined the Formulation Science and Technology Group in November to see how characterisation enables smarter formulation.

Historically formulation was seen as more of an art than a science, slowly through the application of colloid science combined with the principles of chemical processing and laterly through the use of good scientific practice such as statistical design of experiments, formulation has become a science and in many case now a well controlled engineering process. 

However, due to the complexity of many formulations this has been achieved through direct connection of recipes and processing conditions with required application properties, without understanding of the physical and chemical structures which give rise to these properties.
This meeting showcased a growing number of examples where the range of currently available characterisation techniques has demonstrated the controlling structural features in complex formulations.

Our themes for 2017 were: Colour Science, Rheology, Imaging, Raman, near-IR, and Image Analysis.
