A04 - Advanced Characterization Techniques in Battery Research

Over the last decades, lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) have successfully been adopted for powering electrical vehicles (EVs). However, to meet the challenges of further replacing the combustion engine vehicle with EVs, advanced LIBs or next-generation batteries with high energy, fast charging, low cost, better safety, and long cycle life must be developed.

To overcome technical challenges, an in-depth understanding of the structural changes of the cathode and anode materials in bulk and at the surface, the interactions between the electrode material and the electrolyte, the formation and functionality of the electrode/ electrolyte interface (SEI and CEI) on the anode and cathode, and the effects of the additives and the surface coatings are critically important. Since those remaining challenges are complicated, none of the single characterization tools can provide a clear answer, and it usually requires multiple strategies to provide comprehensive information in multi-modal/multi-scale approaches. In such circumstances in current battery research, the development and application of advanced characterization techniques are becoming increasingly important.

This symposium aims to be a platform for battery scientists and researchers to discuss recent advances in characterization techniques and share new ideas from them. The topics include, but are not limited to:

Recently, the focus of interest has shifted to solid state batteries (SSBs) in which electrolytes are made up of Li+-conducting solid materials. The use of solid electrolytes with non- or reduced flammability can keep batteries safe even under harsh and abusive conditions.

Therefore, the non-lithium-based rechargeable batteries based on alternative metal elements based on monovalent (Na+ and K+) or multivalent metal ions (Mg2+, Ca2+, Zn2+, Al3+, etc.) are regarded as promising candidates to replace the applications of lithium-ion batteries in the near future. Although research and progress is increasing rapidly on non-lithium-based batteries, several challenges still need to be overcome to become a practical and commercial reality.

I03 - Seawater Electrodialysis and Electrolysis for Water-Energy Nexus

Seawater electrolysis is environmentally friendly and is gaining attention as an alternative to traditional ocean energy sources. It can contribute to mitigating problems such as air pollution and ocean acidification. In addition, seawater electrolysis technology can help reduce the cost of hydrogen production. Seawater electrolysis is often preferred over freshwater electrolysis due to resource abundance and sustainability. However, seawater electrolysis requires more energy input than freshwater electrolysis due to the higher concentration of salt in seawater. Additionally, the high salt content of seawater can lead to corrosion and other maintenance issues, which can increase the cost of seawater electrolysis systems. In this regard, an electrodialysis (desalination) process is often combined with seawater electrolysis. Another important application of seawater electrodialysis is in the production of chemicals and other materials. Seawater contains a variety of minerals and ions that can be extracted and used for a range of industrial processes. Electrodialysis can be used to separate these ions and minerals from seawater, allowing them to be used in a cost-effective and environmentally sustainable way. This symposium focuses on electrochemical ion separation including electrodialysis and capacitive deionization, electrochemical chlorination and aquatic chlorine chemistry, and selective electrolysis (oxygen and hydrogen evolution reactions) of saline water and seawater.

Papers are solicited on the following topics, but are not limited to:

1) Synthesis of anodes and cathodes including dimensionally stable electrodes, mixed metal oxides, carbon-based electrodes, boron-doped diamond electrodes;

2) Electrochemical ion separation processes of saline water for water-energy nexus;

3) Selective oxidation between chloride and water;

4) Ammonia synthesis and electrolysis;

5) Scaling-free or inhibitive cathodes for hydrogen evolution reaction;

6) Electrochemical redox reactions for production of value-added chemicals.

L06 - Electrocatalysis at the Interface: From Fundamental Studies to Applications

Electrocatalysis has over the last years transformed our energy landscape from a carbon-based to a sustainable society. Unfortunately, until today, electrochemical energy devices suffer from performance or selectivity issues which have been increasingly approached from a material and engineering perspective. At the same time, an increasing number of studies have reported the importance of tuning the chemical and physical characteristics of electrode-electrolyte interfaces. These are characterized by the formation of an electric double layer (EDL) at which all electrochemical processes take place. Our increased understanding about the EDL has led to macroscopic cell design concepts, such as the use of ionomers to increase the density of cations close to the electrode. Despite the significance of the EDL, many questions remain, as our knowledge in large part remains based on models with unverified assumptions. In addition, electrochemical reactions under confinement in nano-sized dimensions and their physicochemical characteristics are extensively studied due to their potential importance for various electrochemical energy systems.

The objective of this symposium is to bring together scientists and engineers whose goal is to increase our fundamental knowledge of the EDL and electrochemical reactivity under nano-confined conditions which link to electrocatalytic performance (activity/selectivity/stability) using state-of-the-art experimental and computational techniques. This symposium is seen as a platform for deep discussion of the connection between fundamental understanding and application in real systems. This comprises, for example, the effect of cations, anions, water structure, hydrodynamic and nanoscale phenomena, or design principles of electrocatalysis and its interface based on activity, stability, and selectivity. The organizers invite contributions on, but not limited to the following topics:

• Fundamental understanding of the EDL and its functional link to electrocatalysis, as well as the coupling of its structure to the kinetics of electrochemical processes via both experiments and simulations;

• Computational simulations of interest include continuum as well as explicit atomistic representations of the electrolyte. Recently, fully atomistic descriptions of the electrolyte have become increasingly feasible and of particular interest. Force-field based descriptions are interesting as well as the application of cutting-edge machine learning tools;

• Advanced characterization techniques that shed new light on the interfacial chemistry and structures, with emphasis placed on new in situ/operando tools, probes and methods aiming to measure the dynamic processes at the electrochemical interfaces;

• Fundamental understanding of electrochemistry under the nanoconfinement via both experiments and simulations.
