Cubosome Formation Processes - Kinetic Effects and Consumer Product Implications
Patrick T. Spicer
Complex Fluids Research, Procter & Gamble Co., US
Pat Spicer received his Ph.D. in chemical engineering from the University of Cincinnati under the guidance of Prof. Sotiris Pratsinis in 1997. In the same year he joined the Procter and Gamble Company’s Corporate Engineering group as head of the Crystallization Core Technology. He is now a Technology Leader in the Complex Fluids research group where he is responsible for scale-up and scale-down of complex fluid processes when colloidal and surfactant structure dynamics play a critical role in product quality and stability. His research interests include population balance modeling, crystallization, non-equilibrium interfacial dynamics, and complex fluids engineering. Pat is co-editor of the book Bicontinuous Liquid Crystals that will be published by the CRC Press on May 6, 2005.
Pat is presenting in the special symposium on Nanostructured Fluids, Soft Materials, and Self-Assembly
