About Professor JULIAN EASTOE
Professor Julian Eastoe is a British chemist: he has held Academic positions continuously for 25 years, firstly at the University of Durham (1992-1993), and since 1993 in the School of Chemistry at the University of Bristol. He was appointed to a Personal Chair in 2004. He has a PhD in Chemistry from the University of East Anglia (1990).
His research interests span colloid, surfactant and polymer chemistry and applications of neutron scattering.
He is a Co-Editor for the Journal of Colloid and Interface Science, which is one of the leading journals in the field.
He has published over 290 research articles, receiving >8900 citations and an H-index of 50.
He was awarded the 2015 ECIS-Solvay Prize from the European Society for Colloid and Interface Science.
He is winner of the 2007 Rideal Award from the UK Royal Society of Chemistry and Society for Chemical Industry.
Surfactants responsive to magnetic fields are reported, showing remarkable effects on surface and interfacial tension. This new class of magnetic ionic liquid surfactants (MILSs) offers potential for control over surface and bulk properties, showing remarkable effects on surface and interfacial tension, allowing access to magneto-responsive emulsions, new methods of separation and recovery, catalysis and potential magneto-phoretic applications.
