Bubble and Foam Chemistry

Plats: Stockholm
Datum: 20 sep > 21. sep 2017

This 2-day course, arranged by RISE Research Institutes of Sweden, provides a straightforward introduction to the principles and properties of foams and foaming surfactants. It discusses the key ideas that underpin why foaming occurs, how it can be avoided and how different degrees of antifoaming can be achieved, and covers the latest test methods, including laboratory and industrial developed techniques.

Combining academic and industrial viewpoints and detailing a variety of different kinds of foams, from wet detergents and food foams, to polymeric, material and metal foams, it connects theory to real-world applications and recent developments in foam research.

The course is intended for industrialists, researchers and students with an interest in foam systems, regardless of the specific application or area of technology and research.

Robert J Pugh, Visiting Professor at Nottingham Trent University. He is an active member of the foams community and has almost twenty years’ experience in industry, having worked as a foam specialist for Dow Chemicals and Unilever Research. He has also acted as a consultant for Argus Fire, Akzo Nobel, Nestlé, GlaxoSmithKline, Procter and Gamble, and Arizona Chemicals.
He has edited two previous books in the field of surface and colloid science, and authored several highly cited review papers on the topic of foams and foaming.
