Today's formulator should be well acquainted with the chemical and physical theoretical underpinnings of formulation. These include knowledge of the types of interactions that can occur in complex mixtures. This course addresses the physical principles of formulation with respect to polymers and macromolecules, surfactants, dispersions and emulsions. Upon completion of the course, each participant would be expected to possess an understanding of the theoretical basis of formulating with these materials.
The course is divided into four parts, each of which will be taught over the course of half a day :
Part 1: The physical principles of formulating with polymers
Part 2: The physical principles of formulating with surfactants
Part 3: The physical principles of dispersions and emulsions
Part 4: Bringing it all together
