The Cardiff School of Chemistry was pleased to host the annual M4Colloids Group one-day meeting on 21st July. Organised by students from Cardiff, Bath, Bristol and the STFC ISIS facility, the meeting provided a excellent programme of research talks from 11 PhD students, plus a stimulating display of posters and accompanying soundbite presentations.  The talks covered a broad range of colloid science, from polymers and surfactants to amphiphilic ionic liquids, gels, films and nanoparticles, and the methods used to study them.  The formal presentations were concluded by an invited lecture from Dr Jon-Paul Griffiths from Oxford Advanced Surfaces Group plc, who described his research career path from PhD project to co-founder of a successful spin-out company.  Informal discussions continued into the evening at a highly enjoyable ‘indoor barbecue’ held at the Vulcan Lounge.
