Sir Eric Rideal Lecture
The Sir Eric Rideal Lecture (in existence since 1970) recognises and honours an individual who has made a sustained and distinguished contribution to colloid and interface science in the UK. The recipient will receive the Award as the culmination of a one-day scientific meeting organised around them.
The Lecture is named after Sir Eric Rideal, who was one of the founders of catalysis and gave his name to the Eley Rideal mechanism. He was also famous for his work at the Colloid Science Laboratory which he set up in Cambridge University in the 1930s (more details).
Candidates need not be UK-based necessarily, but they will have had sustained and significant connections with the UK colloid, interface and surface science community and a marked impact upon work in the UK.
