:: In Conversation with Ronald Woods, Eminent Flotation Chemist


Ron was born on 3rd November 1934, and realised his future lay in the sciences when he attended Grammar School. His first employment was as a chemist by the North Western Gas Board in St Helens.

During this period, he attended St Helens Technical College and obtained a London University external B.Sc. with honours in 1956 in Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics. The Gas Board then financed a year at Liverpool College of Technology which led to him being awarded a Graduate of the Royal Institute of Chemistry in 1957. The College offered him a Research Assistant position in 1958 to carry out research for a London University external M.Sc., and he received this degree in 1960 for a thesis entitled "An Oscilloscopic Study of Various Phenomena at the Dropping Mercury Electrode".
