Electrochemistry of Advanced Materials for Redox Flow Batteries


Ulrich Stimming is Professor of Physical Chemistry at Newcastle University. He is a Visiting Professor at Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Shanghai, China. He is a Visiting Professor at Technical University Munich, Faculty of Computer Science. He is a member (Master) of the DeTao Academy, Shanghai, China. He was a Chair of Physics at Technical University of Munich (TUM).  He was Scientific Advisor and Principal Investigator of TUM CREATE, Singapore. He is the founder and Editor-in-chief of the scientific journal “Fuel Cells-From Fundamentals to Systems”, VCH-Wiley. He is member of various national and international academic advisory committees and served on evaluation panels of the European Research Council (ERC). He also coordinated for the Association of Leading Technical Universities in Germany (TU9) a research network of a total of 8 universities in electromobility between Germany and China, and was co-director of the Joint “Institute for Advanced Power Sources” of TUM and Tsinghua University from 2010-2014.

Research Interest

Prof. Stimming group is based in the School of Chemistry at Newcastle University. They are physicists and chemists working on electrified interfaces and the energy conversion processes that take place thereon. Surfaces and interfaces delimit distinguishable regions of matter and are the locations of gradients that are the driving force for processes.

Energy and Nanostructures Research

The topic Energy deals with electrochemical energy conversion and energy storage. We do fundamental research on devices such as fuel cells, batteries and supercapacitors. We look at the big picture - how the application of electrochemical devices can change economy and environment.  The topic Nanostructures investigates single molecules or nanoparticles on electrodes. These small entities can be either catalyst nanoparticles, biomolecules such as enzymes or DNA, or large inorganic molecules.
