Chemistry celebrates 50 years in the Lash Miller Building!
Joel Drewry (Ph.D. 2012, Gunning group) has won the 2013 Gordon Cressy Student Leadership Award. This award was established in 1994 by the University of Toronto Alumni Association (UTAA) and the Division of the University Advancement in order to recognize students who have made outstanding extra-curricular contributions to their college, faculty or school, or to the university as a whole.
A new class of polymers
Ashlee Jahnke (Seferos group) has synthesized a new class of conducting polymers – polytellurophenes – that could bring about advances in organic solar cells and thin-film transistors. The polytellurophenes have a band gap of about 1.4 electron volts, are stable at a temperature of up to 300°C and soluble in chlorobenzene allowing them to be spray-coated onto large sheets. “We’re already making transistors as well as solar cells,” says Seferos. “We also hope to improve the properties by continuing to modify the structure.” Jahnke’s findings were recently published in the Journal of the American Chemical Society.
