Professors Phil Bartlett, John Owen, Andrea Russell and Dr Guy Denuault will be teaching masterclasses at the Universidade de São Paulo, with the technical assistance of five PhD students from Southampton.

The São Paulo School of Advanced Sciences on Electrochemistry, Energy Conversion and Storage (SPASECS) covers theoretical and practical electrochemistry with conferences on lithium-ion and lithium-air batteries, fuel cells and electrochemical capacitors. Around 80 students are expected to attend the intensive eight day course, which also includes sessions from other leading researchers in the subject.

"This is the latest in a series of international courses we have taught over the years," explains Phil. "Electrochemistry at Southampton is well-regarded around the world and we enjoy passing on the fruits of our research to students in South America, India and China."

Earlier in 2013, Phil and his colleagues taught on Southampton's long-established Electrochemistry summer school. Industrial researchers and postgraduate students from around the world heard about latest developments and took part in laboratory experiments in various aspects of advanced electrochemistry. This week-long programme has been educating scientists for more than 40 years.
