Welcome to the home of ACIS, the Australasian Colloid and Interface Society. The society was established in 2013 as an inclusive organisation to bring together everyone in Australia and New Zealand (and beyond) who is interested in colloid and interfacial science, engineering and technology.
Colloid Science is the study of material dispersions which rely on molecular and nano-scale phenomena to impart key properties. Such colloidal phenomena, which include adsorption, aggregation and self assembly, are dictated by surface interactions. Colloid and surface science are thus inextricably related, and are enabling disciplines for global industries, including minerals processing, water treatment and pharmaceutical formulation. They are also key ingredients for the so-called ‘nanotechnology revolution’.
ACIS Issues a Letter of Support for Associate Professor Gerd Schröder-Turk
In response to the appalling behaviour of Murdoch University in handling the whistleblower case involving Gerd, the ACIS Board today issued a letter of support addressed to the Vice-Chancellor of Murdoch University demanding cessation of their punitive legal action against Gerd for questioning admission practices. More information on this issue can be found here. Several professional societies and a group of 57 ARC Laureate Fellows have written similar letters of support and the Board believes that it is an appropriate action in supporting our members and the right of academics to question University practices.
