116th AGEF symposium: Triboelectrochemistry
22. to 24.September 2021 in Bonn (Germany).
Venue: Institut für Physikalische und Theoretische Chemie,
Wegelerstr. 12, D 53117 Bonn
Energy dissipation due to some sort of friction is the ultimate end where all mechanical energy (and, in a wider sense, also electric energy) finally goes. Therefore the knowledge on how to reduce friction, and the intelligent use of friction, may make a large contribution to our efforts in saving energy. Apart from the importance of friction on wet surfaces (which inherently are electrodes), electrochemistry also offers means to steer friction.
These aspects will be discussed at a small
Workshop on friction in electrochemical systems
with a focus on atomic scale mechanisms. Of course, related systems, such as the role of adsorbates in general, are also of interest.
Because of the unforeseeable Covid-19 situation, this will certainly be a hybrid workshop, although we hope that, due to decreasing number of infections expected in summer together with increasing number of vaccinations, the situation in September will allow us all to meet in person. We have to be optimistic!
Confirmed invited speakers include:
Roland Bennewitz Hua Li Mark W. Rutland
Fernando Bresme Martin Müser Wolfgang Schmickler
Philip Egberts Noshir S. Pesika Michael Urbakh
Florian Hausen Susan Perkin Astrid de Wijn
We would be glad if you could participate! Further oral contributions are welcome.
Participation is free.
By the way, Bonn is a very nice and pleasant city, and has nice surroundings:
