Formulation: The Basics

20th March 2024: 12:00 am GMT

This is a past event. For upcoming training on this subject, please go to the event web page.

One-day course – Alderley Park, UK 

Tuesday 24th September 2019

Formulation is an essential value-adding step in the development and manufacture of a huge number of chemical-using products. For example, medicines, cosmetics, toiletries, foods, detergents, cleaners, paints, inks, agrochemicals and adhesives are all formulated products. FORMULATION: THE BASICS is a one day introduction to formulation – what it is, where it is done, its benefits as well as why and how it is done.

FORMULATION: THE BASICS was sold out when it was first run in 2018 and we received overwhelmingly positive feedback from the delegates.


FORMULATION: THE BASICS is especially suited to:

  • Commercial, production, technical or administrative staff in any company involved in the formulation supply chain.
  • Newcomers to R&D and production functions such as technicians, process operatives, QC and administrative staff.
  • Students and academics from non-chemistry disciplines who are seeking an industrial context to formulation.

Some basic scientific understanding will be helpful but is not essential. A chemistry degree is not required!
