Dr. Gabriel Menard is Awarded One of the 2014 Chorafas Foundation Prizes
Dr. Gabriel Menard is the winner of one of the 2014 Chorafas Foundation Prizes, awarded to the best doctoral students in the Hard Sciences at each partner university, who is also graduating the year of the prizes. It rewards research characterized by its high potential for practical application and by the special significance attached to its aftermath. Prize winners must be at the top of their class and demonstrate by their work that they have considered the consequences of their research for man and nature, and that they are ready as individuals to accept responsibility for these consequences. Gabriel obtained his PhD in 2013 under the direction of Professor Doug Stephan and he is currently a Post Doctoral Fellow in the Betley Research Group at Harvard. Congratulations to both Gabriel and Doug.
Canadian Team Earns Silver and Bronze Medals at the International Chemistry Olympiad
The Canadian team, led by Barb Morra, has earned two silver and two bronze medals at the 46th International Chemistry Olympiad held in Vietnam this July. Impressively, the two silver medals went to Ontario students John Zhou and Sabrina Ge, both from University of Toronto Schools, whom Barb mentored at the provincial Olympiad level this year. A number of our graduate students also helped out at the National Camp that was held at Ryerson in May.

The cover picture illustrates the performance of Nb3O7(OH), a new hydrogen evolution catalyst: Under solar illumination photo-generated holes are scavenged by methanol while the reduction of protons to hydrogen is kinetically hindered. Thus the electrons remain in the conduction band and/or trap states turning the photocatalyst deep blue. The deposition of metal particles on the surface introduces a new reaction side, which now is able to overcome the kinetic barrier. Subsequently hydrogen is...
