Bash brothers of chemistry discover unusual material

'Katsenite' named after McGill researcher who analyzed short-lived material’s chemical structure
Mon, 2015-03-23 14:03

The research group of Prof. Tomislav Friščić in McGill’s Department of Chemistry has made a name for itself in the little-known, but growing field of “mechanochemistry,” in which chemical transformations are produced by milling, grinding or shearing solid-state ingredients – brute force, in other words, rather than fancy liquid agents. “Your coffee maker grinds things,” and grinding molecules in the lab involves much the same principle, Friščić notes. Using mechanical force also has the significant advantage of avoiding the use of environmentally harmful bulk solvents.

Acting on Climate Change

On March 18, McGill biologist Catherine Potvin, as part of "Dialogues on Sustainability" unveiled the proposal "Acting on Climate Change: Solutions from Canadian Scholars" at the Americana 2015 Conference held in Montreal. The plan mobilizes over 60 researchers from every province, building a consensus around a plan of sustainability solutions to help Canada sucessfully achieve transition to a low-carbon society. Complete shift to renewable energy is within Canada's reach the group contends.
