Topic Close-up #1

Symposium M03 – Electrochemical and Metal Oxide Sensors

Deadline for Submitting Abstracts: December 4, 2020

Submit today!

Symposium focus: The development of electrochemical (based on ionic conduction—potentiometric, amperometric, and mixed potential) and metal oxide (based on electronic conduction—conductometric) gas sensors has a long history, and their optimization and miniaturization is a source of continued research. The major focus is to improve selectivity, stability, and reproducibility of the sensor response, in addition to novel methods for synthesis of metal oxide nano-hetero-structures with unique properties and novel sensing mechanisms, and the characterization of the arrays of metal oxide sensors. All relevant topics on gas sensors and biosensors based on electrochemical principles including amperometric, potentiometric, mixed potential, and conductometric devices for both room temperature and high temperature gas sensing are welcome. Please check out the call for papers for more details. (more…)

Akira Yoshino

M. Stanley Whittingham

A highlight of The Electrochemical Society’s record-breaking PRiME 2020 digital meeting was the live session honoring M. Stanley Whittingham and Akira Yoshino, long term ECS members and 2019 Nobel Chemistry Laureates. That same day—October 7, 2020—the Royal Swedish Academy of Science announced that Emmanuelle Charpentier (Max Planck Unit for the Science of Pathogens, Berlin, Germany) and Jennifer A. Doudna (University of California, Berkeley, US) received the 2020 Nobel Chemistry Prize “for the development of a method for genome editing.” (more…)

ECS is set to participate in its sixth International Open Access Week, an annual event organized by SPARC, the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition. From October 19-26, ECS takes down the paywall to the entire ECS Digital Library on IOPscience, making over 160,000 scientific articles and abstracts free and accessible to everyone.

This year’s theme, “Open with Purpose: Taking Action to Build Structural Equity and Inclusion,” supports ECS’s long-term vision to Free the Science by providing access to all in order to further advance research. ECS publications showcase research that directly addresses the sustainability of the planet. Electrochemistry and solid state science continue to hold the keys to innovation in renewable energy, biomedical applications, water and sanitation, communications, transportation, technology, infrastructure, and beyond.

D.O.E. Highlights Faraday Technology

ECS congratulates Faraday Technology, an ECS Patron Level Institutional Member. The U.S. Department of Energy (D.O.E.) recently highlighted Faraday for developing an energy-efficient method for removing water from cellulosic nanomaterials (CNs). CNs have a unique combination of characteristics including high mechanical properties, sustainability, and large-scale production potential. Their material applications include as additives, self-sustaining structures, and template structures. By making CNs more economical to transport, the new FARADAYIC® ElectroDewatering process and associated FARADYIC® ElectroExtrusion apparatus make them more accessible for a broad spectrum of industrial applications.
