Formulating with Precision at Nanometer Scale

August 27, 2012

Call for abstracts for 245th ACS Meeting in New Orleans.

The Division of Colloid and Surface Chemistry (COLL) has scheduled a symposium on “Formulating for Precision at the Nanometer Scale” at the 245th ACS Spring 2013 meeting, scheduled for April 7-11, 2013 in New Orleans.


This symposium highlights challenges and progress in developing formulations involving nano-scale components and interactions, with a focus on pharmaceutical, food, and consumer applications. Contributions that specifically address the role of nanoscopic properties in these areas are of particular interest. Both experimental and theoretical studies are welcome.


Specific topics include:

• Novel nanoparticles for advanced delivery
• Self-assembled delivery vehicles
• Fluid-based or multi-phase nanoformulations
• Multi-functional or stimuli-responsive nanomaterials
• Nanoformulations for topical or transdermal applications
• In vivo and in vitro testing

Abstracts should be submitted online on the PACS abstract submission site:
http://abstracts.acs.org


Select "COLL" and then this symposium. Follow the instructions to input a 150 word abstract.


Deadline for online abstract submission is Oct. 31, 2011.
