Clarkson Professor's Articles Appear on Top 25 Hottest List
Potsdam, NY | Posted on May 19th, 2007
The two articles are among the most read articles as counted by downloads on ScienceDirect.
Roy's first paper, "Electro-oxidation of methanol on gold in alkaline media: Adsorption characteristics of reaction intermediates studied using time resolved electro-chemical impedance and surface plasmon resonance techniques," by K.A. Assiongbon and D. Roy was published in Surface Science, 594 (2005) 99-119. This article appeared on ScienceDirect's Top 25 Hottest Articles at
http://top25.sciencedirect.com/index.php?cat_id=6&;subject_area_id=6&journal_id=00396028 list for October-December 2005. The paper describes the Clarkson group's research in the development of novel electrode materials for direct methanol fuel cells.
The second paper, "Electrochemical impedance characteristics of Ta/Cu contact regions in polishing slurries used for chemical mechanical planarization of Ta and Cu: considerations of galvanic corrosion," by K.A. Assiongbon, S.B. Emery, V.R.K. Gorantla, S.V. Babu and D. Roy appeared in Corrosion Science, 48 (2006) 372-388. This paper was included in ScienceDirect's January-March 2006 Top 25 Hottest Articles at
http://top25.sciencedirect.com/index.php?subject_area_id=&;journal_id=&cat_id=7 The report addresses certain fundamental issues of the chemical mechanical planarization (CMP) technique, and is a result of ongoing collaborative efforts in this area between the research groups of Professors Roy and Babu. S.V. Babu is the Distinguished Clarkson Professor and director of Clarkson's Center for Advanced Materials Processing (CAMP).
Among the coauthors of these articles, Kankoe Assiongbon, a former Ph.D. student of Prof. Roy, graduated from Clarkson in 2006. Dr. Assiongbon is continuing his research at the South African Institute for Advanced Materials Science. Samuel Emery was an undergraduate researcher in Prof. Roy's laboratory during 2001-2004, and presently is a Ph.D. candidate in the physics department at the University of Connecticut. Dr. Raghu Gorantla received his Ph.D. in chemical engineering from Clarkson in 2005, working under the supervision of Prof. S.V. Babu, who also is a coauthor on the second paper. Dr. Gorantla currently is employed by Intel Corporation.
