article imagearticle imagearticle imageXue Jiao ('Crystal') has won the Best Poster Prize at the European Society for Electroanalytical Chemistry (ESEAC) 2018 meeting held in Rodos, Greece between June 3rd and 7th. The prize is sponsored by the international journal Electroanalysis published by Wiley. Crystal's poster showed how nanoparticle porosity can influence their electro-catalytic properties using Platinum particles as an illustration. her work demonstrates unambiguously that the internal surfaces are electrochemically active. Crystal is shown with her poster and with Profa. Dra Denise Lowinsohn (Brasil), former group member.
