Our leaders can help guide and accelerate your path to success. Build your network and friendships! (more…)

You are cordially invited to the January meeting of the ECS Detroit Section on Thursday, January 23!

The meeting will feature Jeff Yambrick, from SVOLT Energy Technology Co., Ltd. (Chinese: 蜂巢能源), who will introduce SVOLT Energy, a new and fast-growing player in battery manufacturing space.

The meeting will take place at the Lawrence Technological University (21000 West Ten Mile Road, Southfield, MI 48075) Building #5 (Taubman Welcome Center) 4th floor, Room 406. (more…)

ECS Thanks 2019 Reviewers

The Electrochemical Society relies upon the technical expertise and judgement of the many individuals who, as reviewers, help to maintain the high standards characteristic of the Society’s peer-reviewed journals. In 2019, 3,693 individuals supported the Society’s long-standing commitment to ensuring both the technical quality of the works published, as well as the integrity and validity of the peer review the community provides. ECS greatly appreciates the time and effort put forth by these individuals, and the Society would like to express a sincere thank-you for their hard work and support. (more…)

Rethinking Plastic

Plastic, it’s very handy. It’s lightweight, corrosion-resistant, durable, and yet, it’s also hazardous to the environment.

This led to the workshop “Closing the Loop on the Plastics Dilemma”—hosted by the Chemical Sciences Roundtable in Washington, DC—which asked chemists, chemical engineers, and participants in related fields to reimagine how plastics are created, used, and managed.

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicines shares what took place at the May 2019 workshop, including presentations and discussions, available now in the Proceedings in Brief. (more…)

The Electrochemical Society honors 2019 Nobel Chemistry Prize laureates, John B. Goodenough, M. Stanley Whittingham, and Akira Yoshino, by the launch of a new collection highlighting their scientific contributions published by ECS. In addition, ECS recognizes their contributions in the winter 2019 issue of Interface, now available online.

Goodenough, Whittingham, and Yoshino have been deeply involved with The Electrochemical Society—as members, authors, editors, fellows, meeting participants and organizers, awardees, and more. Their publications with ECS, to varying degrees, trace the history of the development of the Lithium-ion battery, the revolutionary invention for which they shared the 2019 Nobel Prize in Chemistry.

In “Approaches for the Electrochemical Interrogation of DNA-Based Sensors: A Critical Review,” Miguel Aller Pellitero, Alexander Shaver, and Netzahualcóyotl (Netz) Arroyo-Currás reviewed the specific advantages of the electroanalytical methods most commonly used for the interrogation of DNA-based sensors.

Arroyo-Currás, ECS member and associate editor, Journal of the Electrochemical Society sensors technical area, provided more background information to the article in response to questions from the ECS Blog.

What are DNA-based electrochemical sensors?

These are measurement platforms that employ any form of DNA as the molecular recognition element. We must remember that electrochemistry is extremely sensitive (for example, there is significant work regarding stochastic detection of single entities like molecules, nanoparticles and whole cells and viruses) but lacks specificity; thus, relying on the molecular binding properties of DNA allows us to selectively detect molecules even in complex biological environments.
