Electrochemistry Symposium



The Electrochemical Hub for Energy Materials and Sustainability (e-CHEMS) is very pleased to invite you to its second annual symposium on November 2nd 2023 at Utrecht University. This symposium will feature two great speakers and a poster session covering the current work conducted at Utrecht University to discuss opportunities in Electrochemistry. 

The symposium is open to everyone (students, lecturers, researchers, staff) with an interest in any field related to electrochemistry. The best poster will received an award. 

The event will start in the David de Wied building, room M2.01. The poster session will take place in the Ruppert Hall.

Please, use the registration form to register for the event and/or to sign up for the poster session. The deadline to sign up for presenting a poster is 15 October 2023.

Prof. dr. René van Roij

René van Roij is professor of soft-matter theory at the Institute for Theoretical Physics at Utrecht University. In the past few years he extended his research from phase equilibrium and structure of electrolytes, colloidal dispersions, and liquid crystals to microfluidic transport phenomena,  iontronics, and electrocatalysis. The electric double layer often plays a key role in these systems, involving (dis-)charging and substitution reactions on the liquid-solid interface and in the case of electrochemical reactions also Faradaic processes. We develop and solve models on the basis of reaction-diffusion-advection equations in microfluidic channels and nanoporous geometries, typically 3D (modified) Poisson-Nernst-Planck-Stokes equations coupled to 2D Langmuir kinetics and/or Butler-Volmer equations on the surfaces. Recent findings include flow-induced charge heterogeneities [1], current rectification and memristor properties in microfluidic conical channels with neuromorphic responses [2], the enhancement of electrocatalytic N2 reduction by tailoring the electric double layer [3], and chemistry-specific charging kinetics.
