Congrats to Jeff An, Spencer Zhao, Alexander Cui and Scott Xiao!

Congrats to Jeff An, Spencer Zhao, Alexander Cui and Scott Xiao!

We are thrilled to announce the Canadian results from the 47th International Chemistry Olympiad in Baku, Azerbaijan. There are as follows:

  • Scott Xiao (Burnaby North Secondary School): silver medal (placed 36th in the world) Alexander Cui (University of Toronto Schools): silver medal
  • Spencer Zhao (University of Toronto Schools): bronze medal
  • Jeff An (University of Toronto Schools): bronze medal

These results are very notable for a number of reasons. It is the first time that Canadian team members have all earned medals at a "Russian" Olympiad, and the first time that silver medals have been earned at such an event. In addition, team captain Scott Xiao was one place away from earning a gold medal, the best performance by a Canadian student in four years.

Novel boron-containing 1,2,4-amphoteric molecules, described by Andrei K. Yudin and co-workers (Click this link), were used to generate a broad collection of borylated heterocycles with uncommon positioning of the carbon-boron bonds. The cover art compares this research to flowers blossoming during spring. If the boron-containing heterocycles were likened to flowers, the newly developed molecule...
