Rheology of Dispersions: Thickeners and Gels

  July 10, 2017  
CfPA-The Center for Professional Advancement, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
15-16 November 2017

Who Should Attend?
This intensive course is designed for research workers and professionals working with pharmaceuticals, paints, agrochemicals, personal care and cosmetics, printing inks, paper coatings, ceramics and detergents. It is targeted at, but not limited, to

  • Formulation chemists 
  • Chemical Engineers

Research workers engaged in rheology of dispersions in both industrial and academic laboratories. 

Course Description
This course on rheology of dispersions, principles and applications, deals with the rheology of the solid/liquid (suspensions) and liquid/liquid (emulsion) types, rheology of thickeners and gels. The course will start with an introduction on the basic principles of rheology both steady state and oscillatory techniques. The various rhological parameters are clearly defined. Particular attention will be given to viscoelasticity and the models that can be used to describe it. The experimental techniques that can be applied for measurement of the various rheological parameters will be described. The course deals with concentrated systems and formation of three dimensional structural units. The rheology of concentrated suspensions, both stable and unstable systems is described. The rheology of emulsions will also be described with particular reference to interfacial rheology. Rheology modifiers of polymers, gels and particulate solids are described and their rhological behaviour is discussed.

Organized by: CfPA-The Center for Professional Advancement
Invited Speakers:
   Dr. Tharwat F. Tadros; Independent Consultant

Dr Tharwat Tadros, consultant in applied fields of Colloid and Interface Science, was a senior research associate at ZENECA and the leader of fundamental and applied research in the field of colloid and interface science. He was a visiting Professor at Imperial College (London), Bristol and Reading Universities.

Dr. Tadros’ research work is in various disperse systems, including surfactants, suspensions, emulsions, nanoemulsions, microemulsions, wetting spreading and adhesion and multi-phase formulations. He studies the properties of concentrated dispersions and their rheological behaviour. Application of polymeric surfactants for stabilization of emulsions, suspensions and nano-emulsions is one of his most recent research endeavours.

Dr. Tadros is the author of more than 250 papers and has edited several books on polymer adsorption and dispersion stability, surfactants, solid/liquid dispersions and polymers in colloid systems. He has written 4 books and a comprehensive text of applied surfactants. Emeritus editor of Colloids and Surfaces and an Honorary editor for Advances in Colloid and Interface Science, Dr Tadros is now editor for Wiley-VCH : Colloid and Interface Science Series and Topics in Colloid and Interface Science. He is an Editor-in-Chief of ‘’Encyclopaedia in Colloid and Interface Science’’ (Springer, Germany).

Former President of the International Association of Colloid Scientist, Dr. Tadros has been awarded two medals for distinguished research from the Royal Society of Chemistry, UK.
