ECS Fellow Professor Yury Gogotsi was inducted into the 2022 Class of National Academy of Inventors Fellows at the NAI Annual Meeting from June 25-27, 2023, in Washington, D.C.
Since 2012, the National Academy of Inventors, a nonprofit organization founded and dedicated to encouraging academic inventors with U.S. patents, has inducted a yearly class of fellows into the organization. “The NAI Fellows Program was established to highlight academic inventors who have demonstrated a prolific spirit of innovation in creating or facilitating outstanding invention that have made a tangible impact on quality of life, economic development, and the welfare of society. Election to NAI Fellow status is the highest professional distinction accorded solely to academic inventors.” (From the NAI Fellows Program website.)
With more than 190 patent applications filed and more than 70 issued patents, over 30 of which have been licensed to industry, Prof. Gogotsi is certainly worthy of this esteemed accolade. He thanks his nominators, co-inventors, and companies that acquired licenses for using his patented carbon and MXene materials and technologies for their support in reaching this honor. (more…)

The Electrochemical Society (ECS) named 15 new members to the 2023 Class of ECS Fellows. The designation “Fellow of The Electrochemical Society” was established in 1989 for advanced individual technological contributions to the fields of electrochemistry and solid state science and technology, and for service to the Society. Fellows are recognized for scientific achievements, leadership, and active participation in the affairs of ECS. Each year, their peers choose up to 15 renowned scientists and engineers for this honor.
Nominating period: March 15-June 15, 2024
The ECS Honors & Awards Program and ECS Industrial Electrochemistry and Electrochemical Engineering Division are pleased to announce the new Industrial Electrochemistry and Electrochemical Engineering Division Ralph E. White Outstanding Student Award.
Ralph E. White
The award is named of longtime ECS member Ralph E. White, Professor of Chemical Engineering and Westinghouse Distinguished Scientist at the University of South Carolina (USC). In 1995, he founded the university’s Center for Electrochemical Engineering. Professor White has made significant contributions to the field of modeling and simulation of electrochemical systems. As a department chair and Dean at the University of South Carolina, he was instrumental in training the next generation of students, researchers, and colleagues who have gone on to make significant contributions in academia and industry.
ECS seeks self nominations for the position of Technical Editor for the Journal of The Electrochemical Society in the Fuel Cells, Electrolyzers, and Energy Conversion topical interest area (TIA).
Nominees for these positions must possess and maintain scientific knowledge of the scope of the topical interest area. Specific topics include, but are not limited to: (more…)
Spotlight on Matthew Liu and William Tarpeh for their contribution to The Electrochemical Society Interface summer issue: “Reports from the Frontier: Electrifying Chemical Transformations and Separations to Valorize Wastewater Nitrogen.”
The authors address “…treating nitrogen as a resource to recover rather than simply a pollutant to remove aligns with the US National Academy of Engineering’s call to manage the nitrogen cycle, a challenge central to chemical manufacturing and ecosystem protection.” (more…)

The Journal of The Electrochemical Society is publishing a focus issue in connection with the 18th International Symposium on Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFC-XVIII), which took place from May 28-June 2, 2023, in Boston, MA. The papers in this issue are based on SOFC-XVIII and cover all aspects of SOFCs and solid oxide electrolysis cells (SOECs), including:
- Development and demonstration of systems;
- Materials for different cell components and their processing and performance;
- Cell, stack, and system designs;
- Fabrication and testing;
- New applications including electrolysis and reversible cell operations;
- Flexibility to various fuels;
- Performance modeling;
- Durability and reliability issues.
