Rideal Meeting: Controlling Structure, 27th March 2014, RSC, Burlington House, London
The recipient of the Sir Eric Rideal (founder's) Award and Lecture for 2014 is Professor Dame Athene Donald FRS of the Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge. Prof. Donald's lecture on "Control of Structure" will be given at this dedicated mini-symposium to be held in London.The overall theme of the meeting is controlling structure. The speakers, who are all former students, post-docs or collaborators of Prof Donald, will demonstrate the wide range of experimental techniques used to examine the arrangement of colloidal and soft material systems and the effect on macroscopic properties. This one day symposium will showcase some of the latest work and cutting edge advances in sort matter.

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.
