Electrochemistry plays a major role in many areas of interdisciplinary research and of industrial importance. In fact, electrochemistry is truly an assemble of multiple disciplines, involving analytical chemistry, spectroscopy, organic and organometallic chemistry, physics and materials science, just to name a few.
With an organized, open and thoughtful approach to both the fundamentals and applications of electrochemical science and technology, our small team on Electrochemistry of Materials develops novel materials and technologies applicable to environmental problems and electrochemical energy conversion and storage processes with industrial significance.
