SESSION 16: Rheology of Drugs and Cosmetic Materials (RDCM)

Pharmaceutical products and cosmetics are very important in our life as their preparation and quality have a strong influence on human well-being. Rheological measurements and modeling are used in the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries for physical and mechanical characterization of raw materials, intermediate states, and final products. Indeed rheological measurements can elucidate the progress of the manufacturing process itself. Cosmetics and pharmaceutical materials can be classified in accordance with their consistency and they form a wide variety of phases; solids, fluids, gels, suspensions, emulsions, foams, etc. These consistency properties influence technological processes and the design of processing equipment, as well as the preservation, packaging and storage of these materials. There are a wide range of different experimental methods and equipments used to investigate rheological properties of raw materials, intermediates and finished products. In the last 5-10 years physicists, biophysicists, biochemists, pharmacologists and chemical engineers have made significant progress in pharmaceutical and cosmetic materials rheology, not only in colloidal science and powder technology, but also in the research of the structural transformation of materials during they processing and thermal treatments.


The RDCM session will provide a platform among leading scientists and researchers in the fields of rheology, cosmetics and pharmaceutical sciences. The session will include chemical and pharmaceutical engineers, biologists, physicists, biophysicists, biochemists, mathematicians, industrialists, academics, students and PhD students. Recent achievements in rheology, microrheology, and material structures will be highlighted, in addition to research into the relationship between processing technology and the physical, chemical, mechanical and aesthetical properties of cosmetics and pharmaceutical products.
