    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

    Global Carbon Dioxide Cooling

    Global Carbon Dioxide Cooling

    It may come as a surprise, but carbon dioxide, the infamous greenhouse gas driving climate change, is also a leading contender in the replacement of hydrofluorocarbons in the next-generation of “green?refrigeration systems.

    It offers many advantages over second and third generation refrigerants, including higher volumetric cooling capacity, lower operating temperatures, non-flammability, reduced operating costs, and lower global warming potential. Read more from Professor Geoffrey Ozin in Advanced Science News
