You are all cordially invited to the third annual Oxford Electrochemical Society Student Chapter Symposium which will take place from 10 am to 5 pm on June 11, 2019, in the Harris Lecture Theatre, Oriel College. The keynote will be delivered by Saiful Islam, FRSC of the University of Bath.

We are looking for contributions from students or postdocs. If you want to give a short talk (15-20min) about your research sign up via the link below.

The symposium is free to attend, and breakfast and lunch will be provided! Come along to learn about ongoing research in different departments and network with other electrochemists!

If you are interested in attending or giving a talk, please register here: 

Contact if you have any questions or comments.

On behalf of the ECS University of Oxford Student Chapter,

Joseph Cohen

Four years ago, artist Joseph Cohen held an art exhibit in New York City titled “Dasein.” His paintings at the time incorporated materials like gold, silver, platinum, diamond dust, as well as precious and nonprecious pigments.

This caught the eye of scientist Dan Heller, who had attended the event and was very intrigued by Cohen’s work. He told Cohen he had the eye for material science.

“Dan and I spoke at the exhibit. We talked about my process and how I think about the material as a means to more specifically address and understand the kind of human condition and the physical world. We found that this vision could be reflected nicely in some of the materials that he was utilizing in his lab,” says Cohen, who was invited by Heller to work with new materials at The Daniel Heller Lab. “That’s when I became aware that I could work at a more refined, molecular level. I studied and studied, and worked very closely with the people in his lab. I began to research carbon nanotubes and began working with them due to their unique optical and physical properties.” (more…)

ECSTA new issue of ECS Transactions (ECST) has just been published. This issue includes 20 papers which will be presented at the Seventh International Conference on Semiconductor Technology for Ultra Large Integrated Circuits and Thin Film Transistors (ULSIC vs. TFT 7), to be held in Kyoto, Japan, May 19-23, 2019.

ECST Volume 91, Issue 1 can be found here.

Issues of ECST can also be purchased from the ECS ONLINE STORE as full-text digital downloads.

For more information, please contact

ECSTProceedings from 7 symposia from the upcoming 235th ECS Meeting in Dallas, Texas, have just been published in the latest volume of ECS Transactions.

ECST volume 89, issues 1 to 7 can now be accessed online through the ECS Digital Library.

These issues are also available for purchase as an instantly downloadable electronic (PDF) edition through the ECS Online Store:

In celebration of its third annual Free the Science Week (April 1-7, 2019), the Society once again took down the paywall to the entire ECS Digital Library. For the duration of the week, readers had unrestricted access to more than 151,000 scientific articles and abstracts.

This successful weeklong event produced swells in ECS page visits and content usage that attest to the enduring relevance and value of the Free the Science initiative.


What you need to know before you go!

Success in the industry takes more than a passion for science—it requires staying up to date on industry trends, presenting and publishing your research, and expanding your network. Not only will you find all of this at an ECS meeting, but a little preparation goes a long way when it comes to making the most of your time during the week.

Editor’s note: This briefing was written by Bruker Optics. Bruker Optics will be exhibiting (booth 400) at the 235th ECS Meeting in Dallas, TX this May. See a list of all our exhibitors.


Electrochemical investigations are a very current topic in research. In recent times advancement in technology and industry results in a world-wide increasing energy consumption. A future requirement to face this trend is the development of high capacity and as well low weight rechargeable batteries for energy storage. Therefore studies of electrolyte systems or electrode surfaces are of great importance for possible further improvements.

Also in other fields, like biochemistry or catalysis, electrochemistry is of great benefit to get access to information of molecules, depending on an applied electrochemical potential. For example of the redox-active center in biomolecules [1], the reaction behavior of catalysts or the formation of carbon oxides during alcohol oxidation.
