Autonomous Discovery of Battery Electrolytes with Robotic Experimentation and Machine Learning

Presenter: Venkat Viswanathan, Faculty Fellow at the Wilson E. Scott Institute for Energy Innovation and Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University
Date: August 12, 2020
Time: 1-2pm ET (more…)

UPDATE: In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 11th International Frumkin Symposium on Electrochemistry has been postponed until October 2021 (expectedly October 18-22).

The symposium organizing committee hopes to proceed with the symposium in its originally planned format on this later date.

The symposium website, as well as the registration and abstracts submission engine, will remain fully operational so that previously submitted materials are kept active.

Further announcements will be available on here

Francis D’Souza

Francis D’Souza

Dr. Francis D’Souza, Distinguished Research Professor of Chemistry at the University of North Texas (UNT), is one of the most recent recipients of the prestigious Chemical Research Society of India (CRSI) Medal. The award recognizes, promotes, and fosters talent in Chemistry and Chemical Sciences in order to improve the quality of Chemical Education at all levels.

Dr. D’Souza, an ECS member since 1993 and ECS Nanocarbons Division member since 2014, says he is honored to receive recognition from his motherland, in an article by UNT.

“Previous awardees have been from top-rated institutions across the globe. Getting this award while at UNT is something special for me,” says Dr. D’Souza.

The University of Utah’s Center for Synthetic Organic Electrochemistry (CSOE) is proud to announce that they received a $20 million grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to fund the CSOE’s Phase II development to improve the sustainability of synthetic chemistry. CSOE’s mission is to promote a safer alternative to traditional organic synthesis methods.

“If you think about industry, whether industry is making a pharmaceutical or a plastic, they’re doing a synthesis in an organic solvent and typically at high temperatures and sometimes at high pressures with possibly explosive materials. This is because most of the synthesis require oxidation or reduction reactions that typically is done chemically and not electrochemically. Those chemicals can cause safety issues when it comes to making pharmaceuticals and other value-added products,” says Shelley Minteer, professor of chemistry and CSOE director. (more…)

PRiME 2020 Moves to Digital Platform

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the PRiME 2020 cosponsors—The Electrochemical Society, The Electrochemical Society of Japan, and The Korean Electrochemical Society—are converting the in-person PRiME 2020 meeting to an exclusively online event.  

The cosponsors determined that it was impossible to host the meeting in person without risking the health and safety of meeting attendees and volunteers, ECS staff, and the public at large. It is indeed unfortunate that the amazing plans for the in-person PRiME meeting will not take place as initially envisioned, however, the organizers are extremely excited for the opportunities this reimagined digital PRiME affords. Most notably, for the first time in PRiME’s history, access to all of the program’s technical presentations will be freely available to the entire global community. All are welcome to attend!

For months, Impact Canada has been working hard on narrowing down five finalists to work on the Charging the Future Challenge, a $4.5-million project aimed at accelerating made-in-Canada clean battery innovations with the potential to substantially reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The five selected finalists will have the opportunity to pitch their ideas for battery breakthroughs to a jury for a chance to win up to $700,000 each to develop battery prototypes over the course of 18-months, with the winner receiving a $1 million grand prize.

ECS was founded in 1902 as an international nonprofit, educational organization concerned with a broad range of phenomena relating to electrochemical and solid-state science and technology. The Electrochemical Society has more than 8,000 scientists and engineers in over 70 countries worldwide who hold individual membership, as well as roughly 100 corporations and laboratories that hold corporate membership.

ECS holds international meetings in the spring and fall of each year, providing a forum for exchanging information on the latest scientific and technical developments in the fields of electrochemical and solid-state science and technology. ECS meetings bring together scientists, engineers, and researchers from academia, industry, and government laboratories to share results and discuss issues on related topics through a variety of formats, such as oral presentations, poster sessions, panel discussions, and tutorial sessions.

ECS is currently seeking a highly motivated and detail oriented Meetings Program Specialist to work on the technical programming of its biannual meetings. (more…)
