Nomination period: October 1, odd years – January 15, even years
Presented: ECS spring meeting, odd years
The ECS Physical and Analytical Electrochemistry Division David C. Grahame Award was created in 1981 to encourage excellence in physical electrochemistry research and to stimulate publication of high quality research papers in the Journal of The Electrochemical Society (JES).
Recipients are :
- Current and active ECS Members who have made recent outstanding scientific contributions to physical electrochemistry.
- For the purposes of this award, “currently active” is measured by publication of more than one paper in JES and attendance at more than one Society meeting as a member of the Society within the previous five years.
A complete nomination packet includes:
- Completed electronic nomination form;
- Nomination letter;
- Nominee curriculum vitae (CV) that includes a record of achievements (e.g., publications, technical presentations, patents, etc.);
- List of Nominee’s key published or accepted paper(s) in an ECS Journal;
- Letters of support (minimum 2, maximum 5)
Unsuccessful nominations are automatically considered for one additional award cycle. Renomination is permitted.
ECS Physical and Analytical Electrochemistry Division David C. Grahame Award Committee members may not submit a nomination or letters of support during their term of service on the committee.
- USD $1,400 prize
If the award is made jointly to two or more co-recipients, each co-recipient receives a scroll and prize for an amount determined by the ECS Physical and Analytical Electrochemistry Division.
Recipients are required to attend and present a lecture at the division’s general session or a division-sponsored symposium at the spring Society meeting at which the award is given.
About David C. Grahame
David C. Grahame was a pioneering American physical chemist and professor at Amherst College. He is well known for his ground-breaking 1947 paper, “The Electrical Double Layer and the Theory of Electrocapillarity,” which outlined the fundamental principles that govern electrical double-layer formation at metal-solution interfaces.
