Colloquium Schedule | Upcoming Events

  1. JACS
    CATALYTIC CO2 REDUCTION BY PALLADIUM
    DECORATED SILICON HYDRIDE NANOSHEETS
    The Ozin Group shows how decorating silicon nonosheets with palladium
    nanoparticles renders the process catalytic, a breakthrough with far
    reaching technological implications.
    Ozin group, Nature Catalysis, 2019
  2. JACS
    UNUSUAL REARRANGEMENT OF AN
    N-DONOR-FUNCTIONALIZED N-HETEROCYCLIC
    CARBENE LIGAND ON GROUP 8 METALS
    The Song group discovered an unusual rearrangement reaction,where
    the N,C-chelate ligand of a piano-stool Group 8complex isomerizes into
    an N,N-chelate ligand. Mechanistic study suggests the involvement of a
    high-energy metal-alkylidene intermediate.
    Song group, Journal of the American Chemical Society, 2018
  3. Cell
    DYSREGULATION OF MITOCHONDRIAL CLPP
    PROTEASE AS A POTENTIAL STRATEGY TO
    DEVELOP NOVEL ANTICANCERS
    Human mitochondrial ClpP was found to be activated by specific
    acyldepsipeptide compounds causing apoptotic cell death.
    Houry and Batey groups, Cell Chemical Biology, 2018
  4. Nature
    AMINE HEMILABILITY ENABLES BORON TO
    MECHANISTICALLY RESEMBLE EITHER
    HYDRIDE OR PROTON
    Mechanistic studies of the hemilability of MIDA
    (N-methyliminodiacetic acid) boronates reveal the chameleonic
    behaviour of the BMIDA group.
    Yudin group, Nature Chemistry, 2018
  5. Nature
    TIPPING CELL SIGNALING PATHWAYS BY SALTS
    Mechanistic insights into allosteric regulation ofthe A2A adenosine
    G protein-coupled receptor byphysiological cations.
    Prosser group, Nature Communications, 2018
  6. Journal of the American Chemical Society
    COMPETITIVE SELF-ASSEMBLY KINETICS AS A
    ROUTE TO CONTROLLING MORPHOLOGY OF
    CORE-CRYSTALLINE CYLINDRICAL MICELLESS
    One can manipulate the seeded-growth kinetics of block
    copolymer unimers to control the growth sequence of
    unimers and thus the comicelle morphology.
    Winnik group, Journal of the American Chemical Society, 2018
  7. Oncogene
    INHIBITING MYC BINDING TO THE E-BOX DNA
    MOTIF BY ME47 DECREASES
    TUMOUR XENOGRAFT GROWTH
    The Shin lab's designed protein ME47 decreased tumor growth in
    a triple negative breast cancer mouse model, a type of cancer with
    no effective treatments.
    Shin, Chan & Penn groups, Oncogene, 2017

Awards:

Professor Artur Izmaylov wins JPC-PHYS Lectureship award

Professor Artur Izmaylov wins JPC-PHYS Lectureship award

Congratulations to Professor Artur Izmaylov for winning a 2019 Journal of Physical Chemistry-PHYS Lectureship Award. The JPC-PHYS lectureship awards honour the contributions of investigators who have made major impacts in their field of physical chemistry.

Prof. Izmaylov is the first winner of this award from U of T. The lecture and award will be presented at the American Chemical Society meeting in August.


News and Announcements:

Molly Shoichet named a Distinguished Woman in Chemistry or Chemical Engineering

Molly Shoichet named a Distinguished Woman in Chemistry or Chemical Engineering

Professor Molly Shoichet has been named a 2019 Distinguished Woman in Chemistry or Chemical Engineering by the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry. The recipients were announced in February to mark the International Day of Women and Girls in Science.

A passionate advocate for science and engineering, Shoichet has provided strategic advice to both the federal and provincial governments through her service on Canada’s Science, Technology and Innovation Council and the Ontario Research Innovation Council.


Professor John Polanyi: 'What can we do to prevent nuclear war?'

Professor John Polanyi: 'What can we do to prevent nuclear war?'

Professor John Polanyi writes in the Toronto Star this week about the threat of nuclear war and what can be done to prevent it.

"We are bound to prohibit these inhuman weapons," he writes. "The obligation to do this stems from a right that is increasingly acknowledged — the right of the people on this planet to exist."
