                          1. 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.

                            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.

                            behaviour of the BMIDA group.
                            Yudin group, Nature Chemistry, 2018

                            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. INHIBITING MYC BINDING TO THE E-BOX DNA

                            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.

                          Professor Scott Mabury: 'Plucking Solutions Out of Thin Air'

                          Professor Scott Mabury's research into perfluorinated acids have led to national policy changes on products that put their precursors into the air. He spoke with Research2Reality about these airborne pollutants.

                          “They were waste products that (neither) industry nor government knew were there, so they didn’t know to regulate them,?say Mabury. “We discovered them in the atmosphere, worked them back to where they came from.?/p>


                          Simulating climate change in the lab

                          Professors Jessica D’eon, Kristine Quinlan and Scott Browning, alongside Postdoctoral Fellow Jennifer Faust (Abbatt Group), created a first-year chemistry laboratory meant to improve students?fundamental understanding of greenhouse gases. They're featured in the Varsity this week.
