Electrochemical Degradation of Multi-Component Materials

Objectives/Scope

This symposium focuses on materials degradation under electrochemical conditions. The goal is to share knowledge between different subdisciplines and inspire new ideas. Topics include but are not limited to:

  1. Aqueous corrosion of alloy (Ni-based, Al/Mg-based, steel)
  2. Materials evolution (oxygen loss/metal dissolution) in batteries
  3. Durability of catalysts in electrolysis and fuel cells (OER/ORR)
  4. Stability issues in desalination (adsorption and intercalation based)

Intended Audience

  • Academia
  • Researchers in corrosion as well as energy storage and conversion
  • Alloy producers, coating developers and automotive industry representatives.
