The ECS Imperial College London Student Chapter is co-organizing SElectrochem 2019: chance to meet bright young researchers in the electrochemistry field!

On September 19, 2019, young researchers in the field of electrochemistry (including batteries, fuel cells, catalysis, and corrosion) will gather at Imperial College London for a one-day event to share ideas, present work, and form new collaborations. There will be four sessions of oral presentations, poster sessions during lunchtime, and a prize ceremony with a drinks reception at the end of the day.

Talks with a twist! The student chapter is inviting two-minute “quick-fire” presentations with an accompanying poster, giving early career researchers a great way to introduce their work, inspire others, and encourage interest and collaborations. Prizes are lined up for the best presenters, generously supported by our sponsors that include the Royal Society of Chemistry, The Electrochemical Society, the Faraday Institution, Energy Futures Lab, Metrohm, and Alvatek.

Calling All Battery Innovators!

Canada is looking for its next big battery breakthrough!

Charging the Future Challenge is a new $4.5-million project which aims to accelerate made-in-Canada battery innovation in order to build a clean energy future and provide economic growth within Canada.
The 18-month challenge will offer five finalists the opportunity to pitch their ideas to a jury for a chance to win up to $700,000 each to develop battery prototypes, with the winner receiving a $1 million grand prize.

The ECS Toyota Young Investigator Fellowship, a partnership between The Electrochemical Society and Toyota Research Institute of North America, a division of Toyota Motor North America, is in its fifth year. The fellowship aims to encourage young professors and scholars to pursue innovative electrochemical research in green energy technology. Through this fellowship, ECS and Toyota hope to see further innovative and unconventional technologies borne from electrochemical research.

The ECS Toyota Young Investigator Fellowship Selection Committee has chosen five recipients to receive the 2019-2020 fellowship awards for projects in green energy technology. (more…)

Deadline: September 13, 2019

ECS is seeking to fill the position of technical editor in fuel cells, electrolyzers, and energy conversion for the Journal of The Electrochemical Society (JES).

Nominees for this position must possess and maintain scientific knowledge of the scope of the fuel cells, electrolyzers, and energy conversion topical interest area, which covers theoretical and experimental aspects of all types of fuel cells, electrolyzers, photovoltaics, and photoelectrochemistry. Specific topics as relates to energy conversion include design, modeling, testing, and evaluation; novel electrode structures and their characterization, including electrocatalytic materials and electrocatalysis; engineering aspects of fuel, electrochemical fuel synthesis, water, and thermal management. Materials at high temperatures are included.

The technical editor will be appointed for a minimum initial two-year term, renewable for additional terms, up to a maximum of 12 years total service in this role.

Submission Deadline: October 23, 2019

Submit your manuscripts to the Journal of The Electrochemical Society Focus Issue on Heterogeneous Functional Materials for Energy Conversion and Storage.

About the focus issue

This special issue focuses on Heterogeneous Functional Materials (HeteroFoaMs), which are pervasive in electrochemical devices. These devices consist of multiple materials combined at multiple scales (from atomic to macro) that actively interact during their functional history in a manner that controls their collective performance as a system at the global level. The principal motivation for this special issue will be to provide a forum to discuss the science that controls emergent properties in heterogeneous functional materials as a foundation for design of functional material devices with performance not bounded by constituent properties.

John Bannister Goodenough, internationally recognized as one of the key minds behind the development of the first commercial lithium-ion battery, has been awarded the Royal Society’s Copley Medal, the world’s oldest scientific prize.

The longtime ECS fellow and honorary member was recognized for his exceptional contributions to the materials science field, still used in mobile electronics today, including laptops and smartphones all around the world. The award ties him to an elite group of equally notable scientists and engineers, including the likes of Benjamin Franklin, Charles Darwin, Louis Pasteur, Albert Einstein, and Dorothy Hodgkin.

“Words are not sufficient to express my appreciation for this award,” said Goodenough, in a Royal Society interview. “My ten years at Oxford were transformative for me, and I thank especially those who had the imagination to invite a U.S. non-academic physicist to come to England to be a Professor and Head of the Oxford Inorganic Chemistry Laboratory. I regret that age and a bad leg prevent my travel back to England to celebrate such a wonderful surprise.”
