Department Spotlight


Robin Roberts of the Department of Chemistry is retiring as of June 30, 2017

Robin joined the Department of Chemistry in 1980.  Over the years, he has continuously worked to keep our instrumentation running smoothly.  His dedication to fixing all equipment (both large and small); supporting the NMR and Surface Analysis instrumentation, among our other teaching and research facilities have been instrumental to the ongoing success of our department and will always be remembered.  Robin is looking forward to spending time traveling over the next year, golfing, fishing, and drumming with his band!

Congratulations to the newest Canada Research Chair in Chemistry, Dr. Cathleen Crudden

The announcement came recently that Dr. Crudden has been awarded a Tier 1 Chair. This position is for seven years, and will strengthen her research program during that time. Research will focus on investigating the interaction of organic compounds with metals in the synthesis of novel materials, and also the development of highly active catalysts.
