25th Topical ISE Meeting
of the International Society of Electrochemistry:
New electrochemical processes for energy and the environment
You are cordially invited to join us in Toledo, Spain from 12th to 15th May 2019. The 25th Topical Meeting aims to bring together researchers both in fundamental research and in technological applications who try to push the state-of-the-art of novel electrochemical processes to a new level. The city of Toledo, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1986, is located on a rocky headland, bordered by the river Tajo in the very heart of Spain, just 70 km from the capital Madrid. Nowadays, To-ledo preserves the image of a medieval city sheltered by city walls and fortified towers where different doors in the ancient walls open to give access to its impressive historic quarter. Known as the “city of the three cultures”, because Christians, Arabs, and Jews lived together there for centuries behind its walls. Toledo preserves an artistic and cul-tural legacy in the form of churches, palaces, fortresses, mosques, and synagogues. This great diversity of artistic styles makes the old quarter of the capital of Castilla-La Mancha a real open-air museum. Toledo with an exceptional environment will create a very friendly atmosphere and stimulate the discussion.
Scientific Scope of Conference
New materials play a key role in the search for novel applications of electrochemi-cal technology, either for the effective remediation of environmental problems or for the more efficient transformation and/or storage of energy. Well-known examples of the remarkable advancements associated to their development include diamond elec-trodes for the treatment of wastewater, bipolar and composite membranes, especially designed for many environmental and energy applications, and new electrolyte for-mulations for redox flow batteries, new catalysts for electrolyzers and fuel cells, etc. A detailed knowledge of their properties (and also about the fundamentals of the electrochemical processes in which they participate) can help to optimize existing ap-plications and to discover many other new applications.
