Malvern rheology expert contributes chapter to Handbook of Nutraceuticals

18 January 2012: Malvern, UK: Dr Samiul Amin, Strategic Technology Group Manager at Malvern Instruments has collaborated with Dr Krassimir P. Velikov from Unilever R&D Vlaardingen to provide a chapter examining the ‘Rheology of Complex Fluids Containing Nutraceuticals’, in a recently published book for industry professionals.

The Handbook of Nutraceuticals Vol 2: Scale-up Processing and Automation, which was launched in May 2011 is now available on-line as an e book [].

“I was very pleased to be asked to contribute to this new book and it’s great to have access to the finished product after the many months of hard work that have gone into it,” said Dr Amin. “The rheology of complex fluids is an area of personal interest for me and is one in which Malvern is heavily involved, with the Kinexus rheometer particularly suited to a wide variety of applications in the field.”

Samiul Amin is a member of the both the Society of Rheology and the British Society of Rheology, and serves on the Royal Society of Chemistry/Society of Chemical Industry joint colloid committee. He is a chemical engineer by background with postdoctoral research experience at the highly regarded University of Fribourg (Switzerland). His area of specialization is the rheology and microstructure of complex and nanostructured fluids.
