RSC Faraday Discussion: “Physical Chemistry of Functionalised Biomedical Nanoparticle”, 17 - 19 September 2014, Bristol, UK
There is less than one week left before the oral abstract deadline for Physical Chemistry of Functionalised Biomedical Nanoparticles (FD175) http://mxm.mxmfb.com/rsps/ct/c/1127/r/460001/l/1728014/t/18987
*deadline 25th November* Submit today for a chance to showcase your work at this engaging event:
•Noble metal NPs: Novel synthesis of Au and Ag NPs, for example, and better understanding of surface chemistry and interactions between NPs and ligands
•Quantum dots: Novel syntheses and novel biofunctionalisation to enhance quantum yield of quantum dots, as well as being a protective layer for biomedical applications
•Magnetic NPs: Novel syntheses for enhanced magnetic properties and functionalisation for specific targets in vivo
•Carbon nanotube & graphite/graphene and other NPs: There is very limited literature on biomedical applications of this type of material.

McBain award meeting: Dynamic and controlled self-assembly at interfaces
19th December 2013, Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge.
Elaborate supramolecular architectures can be crafted and tuned through non-covalent interactions, ranging from simple host-guest interactions to more complex types of molecular recognition. Recent advances in the field have made these systems adaptative, customisable, responsive to one or multiple stimuli and relevant to a wide range of applications, requiring also cutting-edge techniques to probe the morphologies on the nano-scale. This one-day symposium will showcase some of the latest work in this rapidly growing field. The McBain Medal is an early-career award offered by the RSC/SCI Joint Colloids Group.
The 2013 McBain Lecture will be given by Dr Oren Scherman of the Dept of Chemistry in the University of Cambridge in recognition of his work on smart polymers, disperse systems and interfaces. Dr Oren’s web pages can be found at http://www.ch.cam.ac.uk/staff/oas.html.

UK Colloids 2014 - International Colloid and Surface Science Symposium, 6-9th July 2014, London
This is the second colloid science conference in this series and will be held in London from July 6th – 9th 2014. It is being jointly organized by the RSC Colloid and Interface Science Group and the SCI Colloid and Surface Science Group and will provide a perfect opportunity for UK and international researchers interested in colloid and interface science to meet, present and discuss issues related to current developments in this field.
The Venue: We have selected the Mermaid Theatre in London as the venue for Colloids 2014 (http://www.the-mermaid.co.uk/). The Mermaid is situated near Blackfriars between the City and the West End. Located on the North Bank of the River Thames, the Mermaid enjoys spectacular views towards the Tate Modern, Globe Theatre and the Millennium Bridge. Excellent transport links to the rest of London ensure that all of the capitals attractions are easily available to delegates.
Registration: Registration will open in November 2013
