Formulation Science & Technology Group

Formulation Science and Technology Group

The Formulation Science and Technology 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 all aspects of product formulation from initial product concept, through the development of prototypes, to market testing and manufacture, across the diverse markets impacted. 


  • To act as a focal point for formulation science and technology within the RSC.
  • To provide a forum for communication between Group members via symposia and conferences. 
  • To liaise and collaborate with other RSC Groups and external organisations on matters on common interest for formulation science and technology.
  • To the RSC in their public relations activities in order to improve the awareness of formulation science and technology amongst the general public, including schools and universities.
  • To take an international perspective for the benefit of all Group members.
  • To assist the RSC in its work with government agencies in order to further the interests of formulation science.   


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