Brian Evans Conway

Physical Chemistry

The dean of electrochemistry in Canada

Conway has contributed much to the understanding of electrode kinetics, particularly those of hydrogen evolution and the very earliest stages of metal oxidation. He has also served as a consultant to chemical research labs. Conway's work in applied electrochemistry has allowed the development of rechargeable, compact batteries and supercapacitors for cellular phones, laptop computers and radiocommunication systems.
