Industrial Physical Chemistry Group

Industrial Physical Chemistry

The Industrial Physical Chemistry Group is one of the RSC's many Interest Groups. The Interest Groups are member driven groups which exist to benefit RSC members, and the wider chemical science community, in line with the RSC's strategy and charter.


To promote the industrial aspects of physical chemistry. This is achieved by encouraging and supporting the exchange of information, knowledge and opinion between industry and academia. 

Get Involved

We are always looking for new members who are keen to get involved and to help organise our activities. If you would like to find out more please contact the Secretary.

We have an online community, which is based on MyRSC, for anyone who shares our interests.

Innovations in Encapsulation

Thank you for all those who have provided poster and oral abstracts for our third Innovations in Encapsulation conference to be held on Friday 8 December in Burlington House London.

We now have a full programme of 12 presentations, abstracts of which can be accessed on the conference website alongside 14 most interesting poster abstracts. 

Thank you to the exhibitors who will be providing stands at the conference and those who have sponsored us by providing bursaries and poster prizes. There is still room for one or two more exhibitors. Details can be found on the conference website.

We already have many delegates representing universities in the UK and abroad along with those from industries such as  Nisco Engineering, Lambson, Johnson Matthey, Akzo Nobel, Ashland Specialty Chemicals, Domino UK Ltd. and Micropore Technologies.

Finally, we will provide some festive refreshments to support further networking at the end of the day.

Register now before it is too late.  Our first Innovations in Encapsulation conference in London was so well attended that we almost had to turn delegates away.
