The Journal of The Electrochemical Society is publishing a focus issue in connection with the 240th ECS Meeting symposium on Electrochemical Separations and Sustainability 4.

Electrochemical separations can recover or harvest value products at high purity and efficiency, as well as contribute technologies for environmental management and cleanup. These innovative processes become extremely meaningful when integrated with sustainable resources and renewable energy. The current focus issue intends to address fundamental topics as well as modern applications of electrochemical separation technologies.  

Electrochemical separations have received renewed attention due to growing challenges in energy, environment, and sustainability.  Now the electrochemical separation has been applied in many important areas including gas purification, critical materials recovery, environmental remediation, desalination, and materials recycling. Therefore, it is great timing to have this focus issue to summarize the progress and provide perspective for the future. This topic covers from fundamental electrochemical principles behind separations, to a range of applications.

During his ECS Masters Interview at the 2016 ECS PRiME Meeting, John Goodenough vulnerably disclosed that as a child, he had dyslexia and could not read like others his age. He described leaving home at the age of 12 for an affluent boarding school as a struggling scholarship student. Stories were shared about life events that led John on the path of science and discovery, as well as the individuals who supported and guided him along the way. And when asked about the dissemination of scientific content, John imparted his belief that scholarly societies are essentially in the business of fostering partnerships to serve the community at large. He emphasized the role of societies in creating space to convene the community to further scientific advancement.

The editorial teams of the ECS Journal of Solid State Science and Technology and Journal of The Electrochemical Society have come together in the spirit of this belief. They are publishing a focus issue comprised of 80+ select invited papers celebrating and honoring the life, legacy, and contributions of beloved professor and longtime ECS member Dr. John B. Goodenough.

The full issue is scheduled to be available in May 2022—just two months before John’s 100th birthday.

This focus issue of the Journal of The Electrochemical Society is a collection of papers on cutting-edge research by members of the Society for Electroanalytical Chemistry (SEAC). SEAC members work in diverse fields of electrochemistry including the fundamental study of the electrochemical interface, nanoelectrochemistry, electrochemical sensors, spectroelectrochemistry, electrochemical imaging, in vivo and in vitro analysis, and energy conversion and storage. The Society, founded in 1984, is dedicated to promoting advances in both basic and applied research in electroanalysis; providing a venue for the exchange of ideas among researchers from academia, industry, and government; and recognizing the achievements and contributions of scientists who work in the field of electroanalytical chemistry. This focus issue will publish exciting cutting-edge research papers at the frontier of modern electroanalytical chemistry. (more…)

To celebrate and promote the many achievements of women investigating the myriad aspects of electrochemistry, the Journal of The Electrochemical Society is announcing a focus issue on Women in Electrochemistry, to be published in 2022. The Electrochemical Society (ECS) celebrates the achievements of women researchers from all over the world with the aim of reducing gender inequality in STEM.

The issue is open to research papers and communications reporting new research results, methods papers discussing analytical techniques and standards, review papers looking at the history and development of specific fields, and perspectives on the future of certain areas of research. Showcasing the outstanding work of a growing list of eminent and talented female scientists, it pulls together the entire scope of topical interest areas covered by the Journal of The Electrochemical Society. In addition, the issue will be edited by 50 top female scientists from around the world, with their direct input on the peer-review of each submission.

The sole requirement for submission is that a female researcher is the primary author or co-author responsible for the study reported or opinions expressed. Male co-authors are welcome, as the issue aims to celebrate the diversity of our community, in addition to the important advances being made by women in the sciences. (more…)

Volume two of this focus issue is a collection of papers accepted to the 2020 International Meeting on Chemical Sensors (IMCS) which was postponed. Although IMCS takes place every two years, the postponed 2020 meeting is scheduled (in a digital format) for May 30-June 3, 2021. IMCS was founded in Fukuoka, Japan, in 1983. Today it is the largest and most-renowned conference in the scientific area of chemical sensors. IMCS meetings provide an excellent opportunity to network with leaders in the field and with companies commercializing chemical sensors for environmental, medical, healthcare, industry, and food safety applications. Papers are being accepted covering topics related to the planned IMCS symposia, which include: (more…)

The Journal of The Electrochemical Society invites submissions for a 2022 Focus Issue centered on energy storage research in China. Under the Paris Agreement, China committed to peak its CO2 emissions and to supply 20 percent of its energy demand using non-fossil sources by 2030. Energy storage technologies are required in order to promote renewable energy sources utilization and economic performance. China’s energy storage research develops rapidly, especially in the field of “beyond lithium-ion” technologies. This focus issue aims to present transformational advances in scalable energy storage to go beyond the current state of the art lithium-ion batteries. (more…)
