  • Mourn with Deep Grief for the Internationally Famous Electrochemist—Professor Martin Fleischmann

    Martin Fleischmann, a famous Electrochemist, Professor of University of Southampton and President of the International Society of Electrochemistry (1973-74) passed away on 3rd August 2012. The Chinese Society of Electrochemistry (CSE) membership and the whole electrochemical community will miss him greatly.

     

    Prof. Martin Fleischmann played an important role in the discovery of Surface Enhanced Raman Scattering effect (SERS) and developed the ultramicroelectrode. He was awarded the medal for electrochemistry and thermodynamics by the Royal Society of London (1979), received the Palladium Medal from the US Electrochemical Society (1985), and was elected to the Fellowship of the Royal Society (1986).

     

    The China electrochemical researchers especially the older electrochemists have a profound friendship with Prof. Martin Fleischmann. In the 1980s, Prof. Fleischmann has been to Xiamen University and gave lectures, and then Prof. Hao-Qing Wu, Prof. Quan-Xing Cha, Prof. Zhao-Wu Tian and Prof. Wen-Zhi Yang visited the University of Southampton, they were welcomed by Prof. Fleischmann. Prof. Martin Fleischmann played an important role to the development of Chinese electrochemistry.

     

    Though Prof. Martin Fleischmann left us, he is missed by the whole electrochemical community with great respect, and the new generation following him will carry forward the electrochemical career.
