Z02 - Electrochemical/Materials Processing for Space Engineering

A half-century has passed since the Apollo 11 mission. This mission, and the 'successful failure' of the Appolo 13, have stimulated space science & engineering itself and dramatically driven ground energy conversion & storage technologies nowadays. NASA’s Artemis program has recently started in order to establish sustainable exploration, including surface sample return from Mars 1 Phobos satellite and even the next giant leap, sending astronauts to Mars. It is also reported that the first woman and next man may land on the Moon by 2024. Additionally, the Lunar Gateway, a space station to be placed in lunar orbit, will be constructed as a solar-powered communication hub. It will provide powerful instrumentations for planetary science, astrophysics, Earth observation, space biology, human health performance and even geological science laboratory combined with rover surface exploration. Such an interdisciplinary space exploration should be accomplished by ambitious graduate students for all humankind's common peaceful interests and welfare.

Several symposia have been hosted in the past, such as “Electrochemistry in Space”, 236th ECS Atlanta(2019) meeting and “ISRU”, ACS Earth and Space Chemistry for Special Issue: Materials of the Universe: the Final Chemical Frontier(2020). Although the scopes were focused on the space exploration concepts, primarily led by the Space Agency, they have not been geared toward training graduate students for future space engineering using basic science. The Space Environmental Utilization Research has not intensively covered so far and our aim is to invite the Electrochemical Society (ECS) community to lead in such an interdisciplinary education & research program in collaboration with the TMS society (Light Metal and Materials Processing Divisions). The following research subjects on Space Energy & Resources must be newly stimulated to make recognize and support the field of Electrochemical/Materials Processing, encompass:

(1) Basic Science with Drop Tower, Rocket & ISS (for example Nucleation & Growth of Ice in Space, Gaseous Electrode Behavior)
(2) Microgravity Research like Protein or Semiconductor Crystallization
(3) Energy Conversion and Storage System for Space Engineering (URFC, LIB, Nuclear Battery)
(4) Sensor System for Rover Eng. & X-ray Astrophysics
(5) Life Supporting System including Desalination Technology and CO2 Reduction
(6) ISRU, Materials Processing/Thermodynamic Measurement with ELF
(7) Computational Chemistry/Interfacial Reaction Dynamics
(8) Ion Transfer through Cell Membrane in Bio-physics
(9) Global Environmental Observation System
(10) Other related topics

F02 - Multiscale Modeling, Simulation, and Design 5: In Honor of Ralph White

This symposium provides a forum for tutorial, invited and regular research presentations concerning all aspects of multiscale modeling, simulation, control and design of electrochemical systems. Contributions related to both fundamentals and applications are encouraged. From this meeting on wards the symposium on Electrochemical engineering for 21st century will be merged into this multiscale symposium. New electrochemical applications are being discovered where the control of events from molecular to macroscopic length scales is critical to product quality and process control. In addition, improvements in many existing technological systems are today based on understanding how to control electrochemical events occurring at near molecular length scales. Future trends in electrochemical engineering will be influenced by the need to control processes and insure quality at the molecular scale. Transfer of molecular-scale understanding and discoveries into new and improved products and processes requires integration of system behavior across a range of length and time-scales. New engineering approaches are needed that couple traditional current-and potential-distribution approaches to molecular-scale events in order to accurately describe and design systems to meet the needs of the next century. For example, such an approach will open the way to exploiting self-assembly during processing. This symposium focuses on the role of molecularly coupled electrochemical engineering in addressing future technology challenges of the 21st century.

Topics include:
(1) Experimental and theoretical methods for understanding and describing behavior in electrochemical systems at the molecular level
(2) New engineering methods and simulation algorithms with improved computational efficiency and quantification of uncertainty that enable coupling to molecular-scale processes for the design, control and optimization of entire, realistic systems, including those where stochastic events influence quality
(3) Use of molecular understanding, design and/or control to address 21st century electrochemical engineering applications such as NEMS, MEMS, and electronic device fabrication; systems and materials for stationary power (from photovoltaic systems and fuel cells to energy storage devices and hydrogen generation); power systems for transportation; electrochemically enabled devices, systems, and products for medical technology; and corrosion systems, among many others.
Both fundamental and applied papers that address the symposium topics are encouraged.

The symposium will include a few invited speakers who will give historical and future perspectives including tutorials of the underlying science in various fields and its anticipated implementation in technology. The tutorials should be useful for students and for professionals seeking to diversify their background or break into new technological areas.

L09 - Fundamental Kinetics and Mechanisms in Environmental and Energy Relevant Reactions

Many of the most environmentally relevant reactions involve simple molecules such as H2, CO2, CO, NH3, O2, N2, NOx, halides, SO2, and H2O. Despite the molecular simplicity, the reaction pathways are often inner sphere processes with concomitant adsorption further complicated by multielectron transfers and coupled chemical reactions. Yet, substantial Edisonian research is undertaken to develop catalysts and tailor reaction conditions for these processes. Fundamental appreciation of these critical, simple molecule reactions would better control adverse environmental impacts and facilitate production of materials critical in electrosynthesis and energy systems.

Papers relevant to all aspects of the fundamental kinetics and mechanisms at electrodes for these and similar simple molecules are sought. Developments and advances of theory, models, experiments, data analyses, and data compilations are relevant. New measurement methods are of interest. Approaches to sound kinetic theory distinct from long established but awkwardly applied theory are of interest. Notions of alternative processes, pathways, and catalysts that circumvent adsorbates and disadvantageous transition states are sought. Appropriate papers consider the specific chemical and physical properties of the reactants, products, electrodes, and catalysts involved in these electron transfer reactions.

Among other issues are improvements that could increase energy density and enable power-grid storage applications.
