Registrations are closed

We are happy to announce this special hybrid workshop to celebrate the grand opening of Particle Characterisation Laboratories; a new center for particle and materials research for the global scientific community. 

 This workshop, hosted by world leading sorption science authority, Prof. Daryl Williams, will explore some of the recent advances in pharmaceutical powders characterisation. this will showcase just a few of the cutting-edge techniques PCL will employ, and give attendees the opportunity to gain fresh insights from a world-leading scientist, and network with peers in their field. Join us in Hyderabad for this one-of-a-kind event.


  • Surface Properties of Pharmaceutical Powders- Importance of Surface Energy
  • Water Sorption Behaviour of Pharmaceutical and Biopharmaceutical Solids
  • Powder Rheology Studies of Moisture Sensitive Solids- Caking Investigations
  • Determining the BET Surface Area of Low Surface Area solids: <5m2/gm

Professor Daryl Williams graduated with a B.Sc. (Hons) in Physical Chemistry from University of Melbourne, Australia before coming to Imperial College London complete his PhD.  He is founder and Managing Director of Surface Measurement Systems, Particle Characterisation Lab and the Professor of Particle Science in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Imperial College. 

DRW has published over 125 papers in refereed journals and been granted international 5 patents. His research interests include the surface and bulk characterisation of complex organic solids, including especially biopharmaceutics, foods, pharmaceuticals and polymers as well as their manufacture using spray drying, crystallisation, freeze drying, milling and granulation.  The Surface and Particle Engineering Laboratory at Imperial College he leads has 3 Postdoctoral research fellows and 11 PhD students.  In 2019 he was awarded the Geldart Medal by the Institution of Chemical Engineers and  in 2020 the Royal Society of Chemistry named him as Chemistry World Entrepreneur of the Year. His research current work includes investigating complex materials in range of industrial applications including their manufacture, performance and stability.
