USD chemistry professor oversees ACS international meeting activities
The theme for the ACS meeting was: “Chemistry and Materials for Energy” and followed the mission of the ACS Energy and Fuels Division “to promote and advance energy-related research, development and education to address the world’s energy and chemical challenges.”
Koodali was tasked by the Division of Energy and Fuels (ENFL) to develop and finalize the technical program and session management of oral and poster contributions. Additionally, he was responsible for the arrangement of non-technical events and registration of sponsored speakers, including 493 abstracts spanning 13 different symposia. Topics discussed at the symposia included Advanced Materials for Hydrogen Energy; Energy and Fuels from Biomass; Innovations in Carbon Dioxide Capture, Storage, Conversion and Utilization; Electrolyte Systems and Interfacial Processes in Energy Storage and Conversion; and Nanostructured Materials for Solar Energy Conversion and Storage.
Koodali also oversaw the arrangement of 54 oral and two poster sessions at this meeting. In addition, he was co-organizer of the symposium on “Nanostructured Materials for Solar Energy Conversion and Storage,” along with Prof. Yun Hau NG, from the University of New South Wales, Australia. The sessions featured prominent research scientists in the academia and national laboratories from several countries.
“Dr. Koodali should be congratulated on organizing a superb symposium in which the current state-of-the-art was captured beautifully in the field," stated Andrew B. Holmes, Ph.D., University of Melbourne and president of the Australian Academy of Science. This was the ninth symposium organized by Koodali at the ACS meeting.
