Congratulations to Dr. Cathleen Crudden on receiving the 2017 R.U. Lemieux Award of the CSC!

This award is presented to an organic chemist who has made a distinguished contribution to any area of organic chemistry and who is currently working in Canada.”

Dr. Crudden is the first woman who won the award, since it was launched in 1992, but she is not the first Queen’s professor. Stan Brown (2007), Erwin Buncel (1999), Vic Snieckus (1997) and Saul Wolfe (1992) had won the award previously.

    Research Results of Dr. Jerkiewicz and His French Collaborators Published in Science Advances

    Dr. Gregory JerkiewiczIn the latest issue of Science Advances, Dr. Gregory Jerkiewicz and his French collaborators of the Université de Poitiers, Drs. Stève Baranton and Christophe Coutanceau, report on an exceptionally high H loading of octahedral Pd nanoparticles of 7.8 nm in size. Upon H absorption, the nanoparticles develop a core-shell-skin structure, the existence of which is observed for the first time. Read more in Science Advances.

    NanoFabrication Kingston featuring a new logoNanoFabrication Kingston Logo

     Dr. Richard Oleschuk, Chair of the NFK Science and Management Committee, comments on the new NanoFabrication logo: "The new logo, a bold black and gold geometric shape, suggestive of origami, was chosen for its strong, clean lines and its three-dimensional look. It suggests the idea of transformation, and about thinking big on a small scale. That’s what this lab is going to help us do." NanoFabrication Kingston is growing and has been featured in the CKWS news, read more.
