On May 11, 2024, Chemical Synthesis at the Seminar on Electrochemical Catalysis for Energy was successfully held in Hefei, China. The event was organized by the journal of Chemical Synthesis (CS, ISSN: 2769-5247) and the University of Science and Technology of China.

Chaired by Professor Bao-Lian Su, Editor-in-Chief of CS, and Professor Jun-Jie Ge, a Young Editorial Board Member, the seminar focused on "Electrochemical Catalysis for Energy". Nine distinguished experts from the University of Science and Technology of China and Hefei University of Technology delivered insightful presentations. The event attracted more than 100 audiences. This gathering represents an important step for CS towards a broader development platform and marks a breakthrough in the field of energy electrochemical catalysis.

The CS Editorial Office sincerely appreciates Professor Jun-Jie Ge for her meticulous organization and Professor Bao-Lian Su for his wonderful report. We also extend our gratitude to all the experts for their outstanding presentations and professional academic exchanges. Additionally, we thank all the participants and everyone who supported this seminar.


Bao-Lian Su, Academician of the Royal Belgian Academy of Sciences, Academician of the European Academy of Sciences, Honorary Member of the Chinese Chemical Society, Chief Professor of the Belgian Federation French, Professor  of the University of Namur, Belgium, Strategic Scientist of the Wuhan University of Technology, and President of the World Association of Mesostructural Materials. In 2019, he won the highest award for foreign experts who have made outstanding contributions to China's reform and opening up, rewarded with the Friendship Award of the Chinese Government.

His research interests include pore science and engineering and applications in energy conversion, energy storage, catalysis, photocatalysis, photosynthesis, environmental protection, life composite materials and artificial organs.

Jun-Jie Ge is a professor and doctoral supervisor of the University of Science and Technology of China, a Young Changjiang Scholar of the Ministry of Education, a fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry, and a researcher of the High-level Talent Program of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. Her research interests are hydrogen energy and fuel cells, and she has presided over the youth project of the National Key Research and Development Program and the key project of the National Natural Science Foundation. Recent results were published in PNAS, J. Am. Chem. Soc., Joule, Nature Commun., Angew. Chem. Int. Ed., Energy & Environ.Sci, etc. She also won the provincial and ministerial awards twice and was invited to attend domestic and foreign academic conferences more than 20 times to give invitation reports or serve as the chairman of the conferences. She serves as a Young Editorial Board Member of Chemical Synthesis. Director of the International Academy of Electrochemical Energy Science, Standing Director of IEEE Power and Energy Association China Energy Storage Technology Committee, etc. In recent years, Professor Ge has focused on hydrogen energy and fuel cells with low/non-precious metal catalysts, key components, membrane electrodes, and stacks and has improved the performance of fuel cells and electrolytic water under the premise of greatly reducing the amount of precious metals, among which the hydrogen space performance of fuel cells under low precious metal load has reached 1.5 W/cm2; electrolytic water performance under low precious metal conditions of 3 A/cm2 @1.84 V is in the advanced level.
