Prof. Christian Amatore --Paris, France

Prof. Christian Amatore Paris, France

Christian Amatore, born in 1951 at Sidi-Bel-Abbes (Algeria), was educated at Ecole Normale Supérieure (ENS), the leading French educational and research center. He was Director of the Chemistry Department of ENS, Director of Research in CNRS and is Full Member of the French Académie des Sciences. In 2007 he was appointed as one of the twenty members of the High Council of Science and Technology to advise the President of the French Republic on scientific matters.

Christian Amatore gave the molecular electrochemistry new directions and endowed of instrumental and conceptual tools that allowed this discipline to overflow its traditional fields to face major problems in organic chemistry, inorganic, organometallic, and more recently biology. Christian Amatore, in partnership with Mark Wightman (USA), had a pioneering role in the development of ultramicroelectrodes worldwide.

Prof. Doron Aurbach --Bar Ilan, Israel

Prof. Doron Aurbach Bar Ilan, Israel

Prof. Doron Aurbach is a Professor in the Department of Chemistry and the Director of the Nano Cleantech Center at the Bar-Ilan Institute of Nanotechnology and Advanced Materials (BINA).

Aurbach and his team study the electrochemistry of active metals and polar aprotic systems, the development of spectroscopic methods (in situ and ex situ) for sensitive electrochemical systems, and the electrochemistry of modified electrodes. They conduct basic studies of electrochemical intercalation processes and work to develop rechargeable high energy density batteries and EDL capacitors.

Prof. Richard G. Compton--Oxford, UK

Prof. Richard G. ComptonOxford, UK

Understanding electrochemical processes is key to developing energy storage and conversion devices (fuel cells, solar cells, batteries) as well as being at the heart of much of modern biology and nanotechnology. At the same time electrochemical sensors provide sensitive, selective, clean and easy to use approaches to the detection and monitoring of many important chemical species (gas sensors, blood sugar, pH).
