Description

This course introduces the key aesthetic and functional requirements and the principles underlying the creation of formulated products across a wide range of applications. Practical laboratories will focus on making and analysing a range of formulated products. Examples include pharmaceuticals, adhesives, paints, industrial coatings, fuels, cosmetics and personal care products, food and nutritional products, detergents and cleaning products, and agricultural products such as fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides. Lectures will cover principles of interfacial science affecting the creation and stability of emulsions, suspensions and solid formulations such as tablets and powders. Interactions of formulated products with physical systems will be described, including the mechanisms involved in their adsorption, absorption, metabolism, excretion and distribution within biological, non-biological and environmental systems.
