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

Chemistry researchers take home NSERC honours

Professors Doug Stephan, Dwight Seferos and Barbara Sherwood Lollar were recognized today with prestigious NSERC honours.

Professor Stephan is the winner of the John C. Polanyi award for his work in frustrated Lewis pairs. Prof. Seferos is a recipient of an E.W.R. Steacie Memorial Fellowship for his advances in synthetic chemistry. Prof. Lollar received the Gerhard Herzberg Canada Gold Medal for her research on water and the life it supports.


Professor Geoffrey Ozin - We need 'crowd oil', not 'crude oil'.

Professor Geoffrey Ozin - We need 'crowd oil', not 'crude oil'.

Professor Geoffrey Ozin proposes a move from crude oil to “crowd oil”. In a perspective published in Nature Communications this week, Prof. Ozin has outlined a greener way forward for air conditioning.

He proposes re-inventing air conditioners with renewable-energy powered, existing CO2 reduction technology, to directly convert carbon dioxide and water in the air flow into storable liquid fuels.


Professors Barbara Sherwood Lollar and Molly Shoichet named fellows of U.K.'s Royal Society

Professors Barbara Sherwood Lollar and Molly Shoichet named fellows of U.K.'s Royal Society

Professors Barbara Sherwood Lollar and Molly Shoichet are among 50 scientists who have been named fellows of the Royal Society, the United Kingdom’s national academy of sciences.

University Professors Sherwood Lollar and Shoichet are two of 13 women scientists who this year will join the centuries-old institution – composed of eminent scientists, engineers and technologists from the U.K. and the Commonwealth.
