HSP50 – Fifty Years of Hansen Solubility Parameters

5 April 2017 09:00 - 7 April 2017 12:00, York, United Kingdom

Charles Hansen's Solubility Parameters (HSP) first appeared in 1967. They quickly became adopted by the polymer and paints industries as a vital formulation tool. It was gradually realised that they were a universal tool able to provide formulators with powerful insights into pigments, art restoration, nanoparticles, pharma formulations, green chemistry and more. They are now more popular than ever, used by industry and academia all over the world, in large part thanks to HSPiP (Hansen Solubility Parameters in Practice) the software/eBook/datasets package that became available in 2008 and is now in its 5th edition. .

To celebrate fifty years of HSP, the HSPiP team (Dr Hansen, Prof Abbott, Dr Yamamoto) are holding a special conference hosted at the University of York by the Green Chemistry Centre of Excellence.

We are expecting a high demand to present at this conference and we are looking for papers that excite, challenge and stimulate discussion. We will be choosing a broad range of topics to open new horizons for all the delegates.Information on how to submit abstracts for oral or poster presentations can be found on the event webpage.

Opportunities to sponsor and exhibit are also available.
