One-day course – SCI Belgravia, 14/15 Belgrave Square, London SW1X 8PS

Thursday 29th September 2022



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 have received overwhelmingly positive feedback from the delegates every time the course has taken place.



“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!
