The Story

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.
