For more than 50 years, notable leaders in the fields of electrochemistry and solid state science—including numerous Nobel Laureates—have presented the ECS Lecture. In his presentation, “Carbon Materials,” Dr. Ruoff discusses the intimate connection between carbon materials and electrochemistry such as electrochemical synthesis, energy storage, catalysis, and basic science such as of the redox behavior and studies of kinetics and thermodynamics of a variety of (electro) chemical processes (e.g., the formation of graphite intercalation compounds by electrochemistry). He will describe efforts at CMCM exemplifying the range and utility of electrochemistry for basic science. The lecture is a prominent feature of the Society’s biannual meetings.
Dr. Ruoff co-founded the ECS Fullerenes Group which evolved into the current ECS Nanocarbons Division. He is a Fellow of the Materials Research Society, American Physical Society, American Association for the Advancement of Science, and Royal Society of Chemistry. He received the American Physics Society’s James C. McGroddy Prize for New Materials (2018), American Carbon Society SGL Skakel Award (2016), and Materials Research Society Turnbull Prize (2014). Ruoff has authored or co-authored some 500 peer-reviewed publications related to chemistry, physics, materials science, mechanics, and biomedical science. Clarivate Analytics named Ruoff a Citation Laureate for many years. He has been a Highly Cited Researcher in Chemistry, Physics, and Materials Science since such statistics have been reported.
