    Congratulations to PhD student Jesse Vanderveen of Dr. Philip Jessop's group!

    PhD student Jesse Vanderveen has received the Kenneth G. Hancock Memorial Award from the American Chemical Society. The award provides recognition for outstanding student contributions to furthering the goals of green chemistry through research or studies. Two awards are given per year, typically one for an undergraduate student and one for a graduate student anywhere in the world. Jesse’s work has been about the physical chemistry and applications of switchable-hydrophilicity solvents.

    Congratulations to M.Sc. student Zijie Wang of Dr. Guojun Liu’s group!

    Under the lab supervision of Ph.D. student Yu Wang, Zijie has fictionalized cotton fabrics so that they can separate oil from oil-in-water emulsion rapidly and cleanly.  This task was achieved at the fabric pore sizes of 200 µm despite the emulsion droplet sizes of 4 µm.  His results have been just published in Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. and a patent has also been filed on this technology.

Dr. Victor Snieckus was recently quoted in a C&EN News article “Chemists introduce a user’s guide for palladium acetate” by Stephan K. Ritter

 

“Chemists today don’t make catalysts—they buy, open the bottle, and let the genie do its magic.” observes veteran organic chemist Victor Snieckus of Queen’s University, in Ontario. He added that the reported findings won’t be measured by any citation index “but will be evidenced in the future literature of new palladium-catalyzed organic reactions".
