The jury of the 5th Antonio Aldaz Award decided to award this prize to Paula Sebastián’s thesis Surface influence on the first stages of metal electrodeposition in ionic liquids, supervised by Elvira Gómez, professor from the Department of Materials Science and Physical Chemistry of the UB, and Juan M Feliu, professor at the University of Alicante. The award, given by the Group of Electrochemistry of the Spanish Royal Society of Chemistry, honors the top doctoral thesis on electrochemistry read in 2018.

Paula Sebastián carried out her thesis as part of the interuniversity doctoral program of Electrochemistry, Science and Technology, in which the UB takes part. She is now carrying out her postdoctoral studies in the Nanoscience Center of the University of Copenhagen.

The awarded thesis is a detailed study of the metal ionic liquid (LI)interfacial properties, and how these influence the early stages of formation in a metallic electrodeposit. To study the surface influence in different processes, several platinum and golden monocrystals were used. Once these were electro-chemically characterized, LI were used to study the metallic deposit in different surfaces with different orientations. The study shows the potential of these solvents to modify a surface with different metals in a simple way using the formation of an electrochemical deposit, which opens the door to use innovative solvents to design new materials.
