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…)

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.

The ECS Journal of Solid State Science and Technology is publishing a focus issue on molecular electronics. It also includes selected papers from the 10th International Conference on Molecular Electronics held from November 29–December 2, 2021, in Lyon, France. The first International Conference on Molecular Electronics (ElecMol) was organized in 2004. Three successful conferences in 2004, 2005, and 2006 led to scheduling this event biennially. Molecular electronics is a widely interdisciplinary field at the frontiers of chemistry, physics, biology, electronics, and their many interfaces. The design and use of electronic components and devices at the nanometer scale stands as a major challenge for the near future.

This virtual issue focuses on papers covering the following topics: 

  • Single Molecule Junctions: Memories and Switches
  • Large Area Junctions: Memories and Switches
  • Organic Electronics and Spintronics: Molecules and Devices
  • Organic Optoelectronics and Photonics: Molecules and Devices
  • 2D Systems, Nanotubes, Nanowires, Nanosheets
  • Self-Assembly and Supramolecular Architectures
  • Scanning Probe Microscopies and Near Field Approaches
  • Carrier Transport and Device Theoretical Simulation and Modelling

Reviews, critical reviews, and perspective papers are welcomed. (more…)

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…)

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…)

The ECS Journal of Solid State Science and Technology is publishing a focus issue dedicated to the memory of Professor George Blasse: Recent Developments in Theory, Materials, and Applications of Luminescence. On December 30, 2020, Prof. Blasse passed away unexpectedly at the age of 86, in Munich, Germany, where he lived since his retirement in 1996. Prof. Blasse was highly recognized internationally and shaped the field of luminescent materials research. He combined groundbreaking fundamental discoveries with societal relevance including the discovery of the phosphor that enabled white light LEDs. He had a deep and also intuitive understanding of luminescence phenomena, and often relied on clever chemical variations in host composition and structure to obtain insight into the underlying physics of luminescence and energy transfer phenomena of ions in solids.
