The American Chemical Society (ACS) Division of Fuel Chemistry has issued a call for papers for a Symposium on Fuel Chemistry and Electrochemistry for Fuel Cells to be held in conjunction with the 239th ACS National Meeting, 21-25 March 2010 in San Francisco.
The chemistry and electrochemistry of fuels for fuel cells are key components of this rapidly growing technology. The goal of the symposium is to bring together the researchers in this field to exchange ideas and current results in the following areas:
- Fuel preparation and processing
- Electrocatalysis of fuel oxidation
- Electrocatalysis of oxygen reduction
- New electrolyte systems for fuel cells
- Fuel impurities and mechanism of fuel cell poisoning
- Chemical and electrochemical reactions of fuels in fuel cells
- Related topics
ACS is seeking contributions on the experimental, theoretical, and engineering aspects of these topics. Abstracts and preprints for the symposium will be due 2 November 2009.
The symposium is being organized by Prof. Elton J. Cairns, UC Berkeley; Prof. Sheng Sui, Shanghai Jiao Tong University; and Dr. Robert Kostecki, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
