A directory of graduate schools where a student can obtain a Ph.D. degree (or equivalent), and/or do postdoctoral research, by working for a professor who is specializing in electrochemical science or engineering. Master level degrees are not indicated. It is reasonable to assume that universities conferring Ph.D. will also confer master degrees. Institutions conferring only master level degrees are not included in this directory.

The file presently contains more than 700 listings from over 60 countries.

(See also links to Academic Centers on the WWW http://knowledge.electrochem.org/estir/inet.htm#acad).

The entries are listed in in alphabetical order by countries, and in alphabetical order by the last name of the professor for each country. The file can be viewed in its entirety or by country.

If you wish, you can also carry out a keyword search of this file.


It is difficult not to miss someone in a compilation of this type, and it is difficult not to make occasional mistakes. Additions and corrections are welcome.

Degree offered: Ph.D.in electrochemical engineering

Research interests: Zero gravity experiments to observe fundamental phenomenon in the absence of induced flow. Electrochemical processes in industrial electrolysis, batteries, and fuel cells are strongly coupled with transport. The induced flow in the gravity field due to mass transformation (deposition, dissolution, gas evolution, etc) at crystals, pores, or bubbles leads to a macroscopic scale flow which influences the nucleation and growth processes. With zero gravity experiments, the fundamental study of the ternary (electrode material/liquid electrolyte/gaseous product) and the binary (liquid electrolyte/solid product) phase situations is possible in the absence of all convective transport to obtain kinetic parameters for processes in industrial electrolysis, electro-deposition, corrosion, and batteries.

Degree offered: Ph.D. in chemistry

Research interests: Method for preparation of electrodes consisting of atomic metal and polyaniline has been developed. In this case un-capped clusters of pure metals AuN , PdN and metal alloys AuNPdM (for N and M 0 to 8 atoms) are deposited in PANI, which serves as isolation matrix. The ionization energy of the clusters of such atomic size exhibits a characteristic “odd-even” variation in excess of 2eV for AuN, which is governed by the quantum mechanical pairing of free electrons in the metal. Electrooxidation of lower aliphatic alcohols in strongly alkaline medium, as well as infrared spectra of the composite follow the theoretical pattern and confirm the existence of atomic moieties. Every signal from a system in equilibrium is composed of the mean value and of the fluctuating component, popularly known as “noise”. The spectral analysis of noise, otherwise known as “noise or fluctuation analysis” yields information that is equivalent to that obtained from e.g. impedance spectroscopy. However, there is one important difference, which makes the noise analysis more powerful. The system under study does not have to be perturbed by an external stimulus, making it a true equilibrium measurement. Electrochemical applications of this approach will be discussed.
