The Sir Eric Rideal Lecture honours an individual who has made a sustained and distinguished contribution to colloid and interface science in the UK, and a one-day scientific meeting is organised around the winner. The 2022 awardee is Professor Bernard Binks from the University of Hull. The one-day symposium will feature six invited lectures by his colleagues and collaborators speaking about their recent research related to particles at interfaces and their applications. The meeting will conclude with Professor Binks’ award lecture on his pioneering research.


This meeting will bring together chemists, chemical engineers and physicists interested in the fundamentals of research on particles at fluid interfaces, as well as those interested in applications across numerous industrial sectors. One of the aims of the meeting is to offer early career researchers a unique platform to gain first-hand information from world-renowned scientists on topics of prime importance in colloid science. Attendees will be able to present their work in the lunchtime poster session.
