“The Electrochemistry strikes back.”
Energy conversion and storage devices have attracted a lot of attentions from academic and industrial societies. Most of the state-of-the-art energy devices such as rechargeable batteries, fuel cells, supercapacitors and dye-sensitized solar cells are working based on “Electrochemistry” even if materials science and chemistry related to synthesizing nanostructured materials are emphasized. Importance of Electrochemistry is two-fold: The creative application of electrochemical principles has a possibility to open new-concept energy devices; and the electrochemical analysis contributes to solving problems of current energy devices and suggesting solution to the problems.
