In a feature in The Analytical Scientist, Professor Joaquín Rodríguez-López talks about the future of and limitless potential of electrochemistry, which is the general focus of research in his lab in the Department of Chemistry.

"Most of the students interested in joining my lab do not come because they want to make measurements with small electrodes. They come because they want to solve big challenges – reducing the levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, creating next-generation batteries that can store the electricity from growing solar and wind farms, putting renewable energies to good use in water remediation, or addressing the accumulation of polymers in the environment," he writes in the column featured online: Joaquín Rodríguez-López on Electrochemistry’s Limitless Potential (
