Awarded for his contributions to the chemistry of energy conversion and storage, particularly pioneering the lithium-air battery, the discovery of ionic conductivity in crystalline polymers


About the Winner


Peter G Bruce FRS, FRSE, FRSC, is Wolfson Professor of Materials at the University of Oxford. His research interests embrace materials chemistry and electrochemistry, especially lithium and sodium batteries. Recent efforts have focused on the synthesis and understanding of nanomaterials for lithium-ion batteries, including nanowire/nanotube intercalation anodes and mesoporous cathodes,  the challenges of the lithium-air battery and the influence of order on the ionic conductivity of polymer electrolytes. 

His research has been recognised by a number of awards and fellowships, including from the Royal Society, the Royal Society of Chemistry, the German Chemical Society and The Electrochemical Society. He was elected to the Royal Society (UK Academy of Sciences) in 2007 and the Royal Society of Edinburgh (Scottish Academy of Sciences) in 1994.
