Thomas Graham Lecture

Thomas Graham

Established 2011

Thomas Graham was born in Glasgow, Scotland. In 1819 he became a student at the University of Glasgow and developed a strong interest in chemistry. He graduated in 1826, and later became a professor of chemistry. He worked at numerous colleges, including the Royal College of Science and Technology and the University of London.

In 1841 Graham founded the Chemical Society of London and in 1866, he was elected a foreign member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences. He was the last person to hold the position as the Master of the Mint, which was the position he held for 15 years until he died, aged 64, in 1869.

The Graham Lecture has been established to fill the gap between the McBain award for younger scientists and the Rideal Lecture for those who have made a distinguished and sustained contribution to colloid and interface science. Typically it will be awarded to those who are in the prime of their research careers, have established an international reputation in colloid science, have already made distinguished contributions to the field of colloid science, and have the prospect of a further 15+ years of active research to come.
