The Division of Colloid and Surface Chemistry
is one of the most active Divisions in the American Chemical
Society with approximately 2500 members throughout the world.
The research interests of the Division members are inherently interdisciplinary and diverse, e.g., our members investigate the interaction of surfaces with fluids having molecular densities spanning the range from liquids to ultra-high vacuum. Among disciplines represented in the Division are physical chemistry, chemical physics, materials science, nanoscience, biochemistry, electrochemistry, and chemical engineering.
The goal of the Division of Colloid and Surface Chemistry is to promote discovery, scholarship, and innovation in colloid, surface, interface, and nanomaterials chemistry as pursued by a global and multidisciplinary scientific community. The goal is achieved through scientific meetings, publications and awards
