Don’t forget to make your plans for the PRiME 2020 meeting in Honolulu, Hawaii from October 4-9, 2020.
PRiME 2020 Topic Close-up: Frontiers of Chemical/Molecular Engineering in Electrochemical Energy TechnologiesPosted on February 14, 2020 by Bianca Kovalenko
In Honor of Robert Savinell’s 70th Birthday
Topic Close-up #5
Symposium focus: In honor of Robert Savinell’s 70th birthday, after more than four decades of research in fuel cells and flow batteries, this symposium is organized to celebrate his achievements. The symposium highlights current and emerging ideas in electrocatalysis, electrolytes, and device design for fuel cells and flow batteries. Topics include molecular-level understanding of small-molecule electrocatalysis (including hydrogen, oxygen, and carbon- and nitrogen-containing molecules such as alcohols, ammonia, urea, carbon dioxide, and others), membranes and electrolytes including additives, nanoparticles, and deep eutectic chemistries, redox-active molecules, and new concepts in fuel cells and flow batteries, with contributions spanning different length scales from molecules to devices. We welcome contributions from both theory and experiment, especially on studies that are designed to bridge molecular-level understanding of electrochemistry to macroscopic electrochemical technologies. The objective is to provide an interdisciplinary discussion forum on the current state and future perspectives in fuel cells and flow batteries, and to celebrate the achievements of Robert Savinell to the field.

Symposium C02: High Temperature Corrosion and Materials Chemistry 14
Symposium focus: This symposium will focus on the fundamental thermodynamic and kinetic aspects of high temperature oxidation and corrosion, as well as other chemical reactions involving inorganic materials at high temperatures. Both theoretical and experimental papers are accepted, and contributions from industry and students are especially encouraged. Specifically, presentations on the following topics in the area of oxidation/corrosion are solicited: fundamental mechanisms of high temperature oxidation; reactions in complex environments and/or ultra-high temperatures (>1500°C); and, response of protective coatings in high temperature environments. In the area of high temperature chemistry, papers on the following topics are solicited: thermodynamic property determination; phase equilibria and phase transformations; solid state diffusion; and, volatilization reactions. Fundamental studies of materials interactions in high temperature processing or in power and propulsion are also welcome. (more…)
Symposium H02: Photovoltaics for the 21st Century 16: New Materials and Processes
Symposium focus: This symposium provides a forum for the discussion of terawatt-capable solar-to-electrical conversion technologies that have the potential to meet the global energy demand and become an impactful source of energy in the 21st century. Research is needed in earth-abundant solar materials, energy-efficient fabrication, recycling of waste solar modules, and storage of intermittent solar electricity to lower the cost and improve the efficiency and sustainability of solar-to-electrical conversion.

Symposium H03: Thin Film Transistors 15 (TFT 15)
Symposium focus: The tradition of the symposium is to provide a forum for the presentation and discussion of the latest developments in Thin Film Transistors (TFTs) and related fields. It provides a rare opportunity for synergistic interactions among those working in TFTs, other high-tech fields, or related products or research areas. Papers dealing with all aspects of fabrication processes, materials, devices, designs, characterization, and applications of TFTs are solicited. (more…)
PRiME 2020 Topic Close-up: Pits & Pores 9: Nanomaterials – Fabrication, Properties, and ApplicationsPosted on February 11, 2020 by Bianca Kovalenko
Topic Close-up #1
Symposium C03: Pits & Pores 9: Nanomaterials – Fabrication, Properties, and Applications
Symposium focus: This symposium is aimed at the fabrication of all kinds of porous structures, their physical and chemical properties as well as their applications. It is a continuous attempt to integrate the diverse research in different fields such as localized metal corrosion, semiconductor electrochemistry, pore-filling, matrix materials, optical spectroscopy, and characterization of magnetic properties in order to develop a highly transdisciplinary approach to the topic. Emphasis will be on pit and pore formation, porous-structure/surface-property relations, work relevant to the formation of advanced materials and their characterization, and applications of these materials in different areas of science such as energy storage and conversion, biomedicine, optics, and magnetism.
