    Welcome to SCI

    SCI is a unique multi-science and multidisciplinary forum where science meets business.

    SCI Themes

    SCI promotes Innovation and Education via forums and networks which support the delivery of our charitable aim to advance the commercial application of chemistry related sciences into business.

    SCI was established by Royal Charter in 1881, by a prominent group of forward thinking Scientists, Inventors and Business people; with founder members going on to set up major businesses producing many of the daily products we recognise today.

    Join SCI today to share and exchange information, ideas, innovations and research. Members have access to a growing network of member specialists from sectors as diverse as food and agrisciences, environment, energy, materials and health and well-being.

    Mohmed MullaIn 2016, Mohmed Mulla was awarded a Rideal Travel Bursary for his attendance at the 90th ACS Colloid & Surface Science Symposium which was held at Harvard University, Boston, USA.

    ‘The ACS Colloid & Surface Science Symposium is a topical meeting bringing together interdisciplinary researchers in academia and industry with a common interest in particles and complex fluids, interfacial phenomena and chemistry, soft-matter science and environmental science.

    ‘I was selected to deliver an oral presentation in a technical break-out session of specific interest to my work. Not only did this serve as a fantastic opportunity to present at an international conference, but it also provided the perfect platform to discuss my work, and network with experts in the field. As part of my PhD, I have been in discussion with a group in Japan who specialise in microfluidics. Their attendance at the conference allowed us to finally meet face to face and has hopefully facilitated a research trip to their group.

    ‘Attending this conference gave me the chance to talk to a range of academics based in the US which was extremely useful and insightful, as I am nearing the end of my PhD and am weighing up my future career prospects in academia.’

    ‘Overall the conference proved to be an extremely valuable experience. I am very grateful to the Rideal Trust for awarding me this travel grant and helping me to attend this international conference.’
