Chemistry department researchers chosen to present at international Electrochemical Society conference

Emma Palin, a PhD student, and Prof. Karl Ryder in the Chemistry department have been chosen to present at the 232nd Electrochemical Society meeting which will take place between 1st and 5th October 2017 in National Harbor, MD, USA.

Emma has been awarded a bursary from the Electrochemistry Group of the RSC, one of only 10 awarded this year, to attend the conference. She will be presenting a poster entitled ‘A Novel Electrochemical Method for Analysis of Thin Metal Films and Bilayers for Application in the PCB Industry’.

Karl will be giving a talk at the meeting on similar work entitled 'Characterisation of Metal Deposition and Metal Dissolution Processes in Deep Eutectic Solvents Using Electrochemical, Gravimetric and Neutron Scattering Methods.’

Emma's PhD project, supervised by Prof. Karl Ryder and Prof. Robert Hillman, involves using a variety of novel electrochemical and neutron scattering techniques to characterise thin layer metal films that are used to manufacture printed circuit boards for the electronics industry.

We wish Emma and Karl well at the conference. For more information on the Electrochemical Society meeting please see the link here .
