This post serves as notice that the Executive Committee and Members at Large of the ECS Nanocarbons Division have proposed amendments to their division bylaws. Per the ECS Nanocarbons Division’s existing bylaws, amendments must be passed by favorable vote of two-thirds of those replying within two (2) months to a ballot sent to all members of the ECS Nanocarbons Division. If approved by the division, the proposed changes advance to the ECS Board of Directors for final approval.

The ballot will be sent via email to ECS Nanocarbons Division members on Thursday, June 23, 2022. (more…)

Call for Papers

The ECS Journal of Solid State Science and Technology is publishing a collection of papers on Complex Multi-Metal Carbides.

Transition metal carbides are experiencing a resurgence in recent years due to their interesting properties and applications including catalysis, energy storage, and mechanical properties. However, moving beyond simple single-metal carbides can be quite challenging synthetically. Over the last 10 years, complex multi-metal carbides have seen a significant increase in research funding and publications. These complex metal carbides have a range of compositions, crystal structures, and phases, including solid solutions, true ternary compounds, MAX phases and related MXenes, and high entropy alloys. Most publications focus on the properties of these materials, leaving the synthesis details to the experimental section—and less explained and understood. This focus issue helps researchers understand the complexities involved in synthesizing these materials and how the properties can be tuned through synthetic manipulation. (more…)
