The Electrochemistry Group is one of our many Interest Groups. The Interest Groups are member driven groups which exist to benefit our members, and the wider chemical science community, in line with our strategy and charter.
The Electrochemistry Group of the Royal Society of Chemistry represents and co-ordinates the interests of a very wide range of scientists involved with all aspects of electrochemistry.
The aim of the Electroanalytical Sensing Systems Group is to promote the study and application of electroanalytical chemistry.
What is Electroanalytical Chemistry?
Electroanalytical chemistry, also known as electroanalysis, lies at the interface between analytical science and electrochemistry.
It is concerned with the development, characterisation and application of chemical analysis methods employing electrochemical phenomena. It has major significance in modern analytical science, enabling measurements of the smallest chemical species, the proton, right up to the macromolecules of importance in modern biology.
Devices and systems have importance in the contemporary laboratory as well as in out-of-laboratory applications. The latter applications are enabled by the role of electroanalysis as a major driving force in modern chemical sensor and biosensor technology as well as electroanalytical detection in microsystems technology.
The Group achieves its aims primarily through the organisation of timely scientific meetings addressing new advances and potential applications of relevance to researchers and end-users, whether in academia, industry, clinical, environmental or government laboratories.
Technology transfer between researchers and technology users is a central theme of many such meetings.
Members maintain contacts and collaborations with other cognate groups in electrochemical science via the Electrochemistry Newsletter. The RSC Electrochemistry Group and the SCI Electrochemistry Group also receive the newsletter.
The Group also supports the attendance of postgraduate students at relevant international scientific meetings by offering assistance with travel and related costs.
