About Us

The Ohio University student chapter of the Electrochemical Society was chartered on chartered on May 3rd 2011 under the supervision of Dr. Gerardine G. Botte.

The purpose of this student organization is to foster among students a greater understanding of electrochemistry as well as to promote electrochemical and solid-state science and technology amongst their peers. In addition, the new chapter aims to enhance student professional development and to enrich the overall academic experience.

The chapter will provide various benefits to students involved in electrochemical research, such as the opportunity to engage with fellow students and peers in the field, and to collaborate with other researchers to present posters at ECS meetings. Additional benefits include opportunities to organize technical meeting programs and to participate in scholarly activities.

The sub-disciplines within electrochemistry which the chapter will emphasize include electrolysis (of urea, ammonia, and coal), corrosion, fuel cells, batteries, alternative energy, sensors, nanotechnology, and environmental science.
