III Reunión Ibérica de coloides e Interfases (RICI)
VIII. Reunión del Grupo especializado de coloides e interfases (CEGI)
Although colloid interface science dates back over 150 years, it has undergone a renaissance over the large couple of decades, largely as a result both of advances in our theoretical understanding of what happens to systems at the submicrometre lenght scales involved and developments of new techniques for studing these systems. This multidisciplinary area spans the spectrum from biological systems to advanced materials, and has practical applications as diverse as cosmetics, personal and domestic care products, gene transfection, food science, nanoparticles, etc.
