Sir Eric Rideal Lecture

Eric Rideal

Established 1970

The Sir Eric Rideal Lecture is a late-career or “life-time achievement award”, which recognises and honours an individual who has made a sustained and distinguished contribution to colloid and interface science in the UK. The recipient will receive the Award as the culmination of a one-day scientific meeting organised around them.

The Lecture is named after Sir Eric Rideal, who was one of the founders of catalysis and gave his name to the Eley Rideal mechanism. He was also famous for his work at the Colloid Science Laboratory which he set up in Cambridge University in the 1930s (more details).
