Fundamentals of the Electrochemistry of the Metal/Electrolyte Interface Symposium

Venue: Anatomy Lecture Theatre, 6th Floor, King’s Building, Strand campus, King’s College London

6 July @ 9:00 am 7 July @ 5:00 pm

This symposium is supported by the TYC and is the third meeting organised by the partners of the EPSRC project on quantum corrosion. The symposium will focus on the fundamentals of electrochemistry of the metal/electrolyte interface, and will bring together theorists and experimentalists to discuss the latest developments. As well as the talks, there is a poster session and a concluding discussion session.

Registration is now open and will close once we have 50 attendees.
