Leaders Overcoming Great Inequalities in Chemical Sciences (LOGIC) is an annual retreat organized by CWIC and typically occurs 2-3 days before the Canadian Chemistry Conference and Exhibition (CCCE). Find out more about the 2021 event.
Sought after for their ability to repel water, grease, and oil, PFAS are a class of more than 4700 synthetic compounds used since the 1950s. One application poorly studied in North America is PFAS in cosmetics. A new study now shows just how much they contain.
When former Minister of Science Kirsty Duncan put forward a motion to create the Committee in May, she spoke of the importance of parliamentarians gaining a better understanding of science and research.
Researchers at the University of Saskatchewan are working on an air filter to destroy viruses like the one that causes COVID-19. The idea is to capture airborne water droplets after someone coughs or sneezes, and to render viruses inside the droplets harmless by oxidizing them.
The Canadian Society for Chemistry is excited that IUPAC | CCCE 2021 is only few weeks away. Join the conversation on social media to connect with other attendees and engage with the conference on your platforms.
Meet Rose Katagiri, CIC's new Awards Coordinator and Governance Associate, committed to facilitating the recognition of professionals and students who have made outstanding contributions to the chemical sciences while also providing administrative support to the governance of the CIC for Board of Members and constituent societies.
An international collaboration used machine-learning to create an open-access virtual catalogue of some 300,000 organic compounds, opening doors for a range of future applications from materials to drugs. The project, called Kraken, represents teamwork by Alán Aspuru-Guzik’s Matter Lab at the University of Toronto, the Sigman Research Group at the University of Utah, Technische Universität Berlin, the Karlsruhe Institute...
Scientists began reporting microplastic pollution in the ocean as far back as the 1970s but our understanding of these tiny particles’ impact on fish is only just catching up. Their harm is due to factors not generally considered in toxicology testing – the plastics’ size, shape and chemical makeup.
