16th December 2020 - Particle Dispersion in Liquid Formulations - Online - particle dispersion is complex, the colloid science is not simple, the hydronamics through formulation manufacture, storage and use have a major effect and finally measuring particle size, morphology and distribution at all stages of a formulated products life is difficult.  Further details coming soon.  If you want to contribute - presentation (oral, poster) or help organise please get in touch - This email address is being protected from spambots.

You are still able to learn about recent meetings with presentations, once we have had a chance to collect all the recordings and presentations together.

You have just missed - 10th November 2020 - Modelling and Simulation in Formulation - hear about how modelling and simulation are revolutionising formulation.

Formulation 4.1 - after Formulation 4.0, this will be the second chapter of the story of bringing digital to all aspect of formulation. 

Formulating Functional Films and Coatings III - learn about new insight into how the performance of organic coatings is controlled by formulation.

Future Formualtion IV - you are still be able to learn about the outputs from the EPSRC's 7 Future Formulation grants.  And we would love your thoughts on what to do for Future Formulation V in 2021 - This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

TBC Spring 2021 – Formulation Beyond Peak Oil – Online – an update from B&GII in 2010, how formulation ingredients are less dependent on oil derived raw materials - This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Postponed - new date 2 March 2021 - Keeping it Green in Personal Care - London

12th March 2021 - Formative Formulation 2 - Online - Free Registration - A follow-up conference to Formative Formulation, this is a technical meeting for early career formulation scientists in industry and academia.

Postponed - new dates 5 - 9 September 2021 - Advances in Corrosion Protection by Organic Coatings (ACPOC7) - Cambridge

Upcoming Events: Formulating Functional Films and Coatings III, Powder Flow, Formulation Modelling/Automated Formulation, Formulation Monitoring, Renewable Materials, Formulation Science Fair (Outreach).  
Other Groups Events:
COVID-19: RSC-FST has postponed all our events for the moment and are looking at online options to go ahead with a number of conferences before the autumn.
Please make sure you and your family stay safe.
One of the key ways you can protect yourself and others is through regular handwashing using soap and water or an alcohol based hand rub - which kill and remove the virus.
If your organisation wants to make alcohol hand rub then the WHO has detailed formulation instructions -
Stay safe
Call for RSC-FST participation input into the Royal Society of Chemistry's Data for a Service Project
Aim: to understand the data needs of Formulation Scientists working in several industrial sectors. 
Get involved: Please complete the quick form - - and you will be contacted to participate in a 20-30 minutes call to help the RSC understand the needs and challenges of using scientific data in formulations research. We will use the insight directly for our product development to build new data tools and services for formulations scientists to use.


This isn't just any formulation group; this is the Formulation Science and Technology Interest Group! The RSC-FST promotes technology exchange over all aspects of product formulation, from initial product concept to manufacture.  Join us to find out how formulations impact your life and how we make, characterise and use them everyday (details of how to join the RSC-FST).
Our categories include:
  • 1-day events (workshops, symposia, meetings...)
  • Multi-day events (conferences, symposia, meetings...)
  • Training events
  • Awards, bursaries or travel grants
  • Early career researcher specific events (targeted at students, postgraduates, postdocs, all early career scientists)
The RSC-FST is working together with the National Formulation Centre to drive strategic activity in formulation for the benefit of the UK.
