Course: Colloid Chemistry and Colloidal Dispersions - Fundamentals and Practical Aspects

This 3-day intensive course, provides a comprehensive introduction to the fundamental and practical aspects of colloid chemistry and colloidal dispersions.

The course is focused on particles that are dispersed in liquids. Nearby topics, such as surfactant chemistry, polymers in solution, emulsions and foams are also covered to some degree in order to make the course complete on a stand-alone basis.

Colloidal dispersions are systems where one phase, having at least one dimension between 1 and 1000 nm, is dispersed in a second phase. Examples are particles dispersed in a liquid to form a suspension or liquid droplets dispersed in a second liquid, in which it is insoluble, to form an emulsion.

Colloidal dispersions are present in every-day life, from food systems to ceramics. The chemistry of colloidal dispersions covers many overlapping fields of science, such as physical chemistry, organic chemistry, physics and biology. It is therefore rare that solely colloidal dispersions are covered.
This course is organized annually and has been held for five consecutive years since 2014.   

 

Goal and purpose

This course aims at providing a comprehensive introduction to the fundamental and practical aspects of colloid chemistry and colloidal dispersions which are relevant for a variety of technical applications.  

Target audience

The course is relevant for industrialists, researchers and PhD students working with development and formulation of any colloidal system, be it paints, coatings, ceramics, food, cosmetic or pharmaceutical formulations.
