Academic staff
Welcome to the homepage of the Electrocatalysis and Applied Electrochemistry Group at the Department of Chemical Sciences, University of Padova. The research group applies electrochemical methods to the study of chemical problems, conducting investigations in electro-organic chemistry, electroicatalysis for energy convesion and storage, and environmental electrochemistry

Prof. Armando Gennaro has been selected as the winner of the Jaroslav Heyrovsky Prize for Molecular Electrochemistry, in recognition of his outstanding contributions to molecular electrochemistry ranging from the very fundamentals of electron transfer mechanisms to the development of electrosynthetic processes.

The Jaroslav Heyrovsky Prize for Molecular Electrochemistry will be awarded at the 2018 Annual Meeting in Bologna, Italy
