Royal Society of Chemistry - Particle Characterisation Group

The Particle Characterisation Group is one of the RSC's many Interest Groups. The Interest Groups are member driven groups which exist to benefit RSC members, and the wider chemical science community, in line with the RSC's strategy and charter.

The distribution of particle sizes and shapes, together with the characterisation of surfaces, has been shown to greatly influence the process of particulate and porous systems and therefore is of immense interest to manufacturers allied to the bulk powder industries, for example.


  • To provide a forum through which those persons with a common interest in ways to dimensionally characterise single or assemblies of particles, in the solids handling, solids fabrication and general solid particulate industries, can meet to exchange views, discuss problems and generate ideas. 
  • To bring together diverse but interdependent specialists from many industries to provide a link between different industries and educational institutions. 
  • To work with other groups working in associated areas. 


PCIG AWARDS in the form of bursaries are available to student members of the Particle Characterisation Interest Group of the RSC in order to attend Conferences.
