   What's New?

A new web site will be and up running before the end of March 2013!  Check back for more information!

  • May 2012

    Kris Harris' latest collaborative project with the research group of Prof. Stephen Loeb (Windsor) is now online!  Check out this neat article on metal organic frameworks constructed from supramolecular components, and the 2H NMR characterization of molecular motion in these systems:  V.N. Vukotic, K.J. Harris, K. Zhu, R.W. Schurko* and S.J. Loeb*, 2012. Robust Dynamics inside a Metal-Organic Framework. Nature Chem. DOI: 10.1038/nchem.1354.  This work is also featured on the cover of the June 2012 edition.

    A new paper describing a different collaboration with Prof. Chuck Macdonald (Windsor) is also now online.  Check it out: C.L.B. Macdonald, R. Bandyopadhyay, B.F.T. Cooper, W.W. Friedl, A.J. Rossini, R.W. Schurko, S.H.; Eichhorn and R. Herber, 2012.  Experimental and computational insights into the stabilization of low-valent main group elements using crown ethers and related ligands. J. Am. Chem. Soc. 134, 4332–4345. DOI: 10.1021/ja211135s

    Our new 500 MHz Bruker Avance III Console is now installed, and we have run a series of 1H SSNMR experiments on the new spectrometer with our ultra-fast magic-angle spinning probe.  Visit our departmental NMR website for more information.  We are expecting a low-gamma static probe to be delivered at some time during the summer.

    Marcel Hildebrand successfully defended his M.Sc. (Chemistry) thesis, "Solid-State NMR of Quadrupolar Nuclei for Structural Elucidation," on April 30, 2012.  Congratulations Marcel!

    We welcome new summer students to our group, including Derek Lanoue, Anthony Sandre and Mike Jaroszewicz

  • February 2012

    Come join us at the Solid-State NMR symposium at the 54th Rocky Mountain Conference for Analytical Chemistry, which is taking place this year from July 15-19, 2012 in Copper Mountain, Colorado.  We have an outstanding list of speakers thus far, and will be taking submissions for oral and poster presentations in the very near future!  Deadline for consideration for an oral presentation is May 1, 2012, and registration is opwwen right now!

    Hope to see you this summer in Colorado!

    Some other news:

    I just returned from India, where I attended the 2012 NMRS meeting at the Indian Institute of Science in Bangalore, India, which was a fantastic conference with over 400 participants.  The NMRS committee and local organizers did a great job in putting together an excellent meeting.  It was very nice to run into some old friends, and make a lot of new ones as well, as well as to learn much about the vibrant NMR community in India.  After the meeting, I visited the research group of P.K. Madhu at the Tata Institute for Fundamental Research in Mumbai, and had a very good visit there as well, with excellent hospitality.

    Finally, please check out my review article on ultra-wideline solid-state NMR in the latest edition of the Encyclopedia of Magnetic Resonance: Acquisition of Wideline Solid-State NMR Spectra of Quadrupolar Nuclei.  Encyc. Magn. Reson.  Available online: DOI: 10.1002/9780470034590.emrstm1199

  • October 2011

    Welcome to Daniel Klauke and Ross Lepera, two second-year outstanding scholars who have joined our group.

  • September 2011

    Wow... it has been a long time since the last update, and a lot has gone on.

    Some big news: our group was successful in obtaining renewal (and increase!) of the NSERC Discovery Grant ($70,000 per year over 5 years), and I also received an NSERC Accelerator Supplement ($120,000 over 3 years), which was really good news.  We also obtained an equipment grant (NSERC RTI - $150,000) which will go towards the upgrade of our 500 MHz NMR spectrometer to an Avance III console.

    I have been on the road quite a bit this year.  In March, Kris Harris and I visited Lucio Frydman's group at the Weizmann Institute, and got some interesting projects off of the ground.  I also spent a month in France, with my home base at Lille hosted by the group of J.P. Amoureux.  The whole group was up in Montreal at the Canadian Society for Chemistry Conference, where we presented three lectures and three posters.  Marcel Hildebrand and Karen Johnston presented some of their work at the recent Inorganic Discussion Weekend in Niagara Falls.  Kris Harris and I are off to the Chamonix meeting on Sept. 9 to present some of our recent work as well.

    A bunch of new papers are up and online, including Kris Harris' and Bryan Lucier's work on 195Pt NMR of vapochromic complexes (a collaboration with Suning Wang's group at Queens' University, Inorg. Chem. 2011, 50, 3447–3457), and Bryan Lucier's paper on 195Pt, 14N and 35Cl NMR of cisplatin complexes, which is in the Canadian Journal of Chemistry (Can. J. Chem. 2011, 89, 919-937) special tribute issue to Rod Wasylishen (who was my Ph.D. supervisor).

    Finally, we have three undergraduate students working in the laboratory, including Andrew Namespetra and Zach Friedl (outstanding scholars program), and Chris O'Keefe (59-410 project student).

  • February 2011

    Congratulations also to Aaron Rossini, who was awarded a Marie Curie Fellowship, and has started a post-doctoral fellowship in the laboratory of Lyndon Emsley at the Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon in Lyon, France.  We will miss Aaron's "quick wit", and wish him and Erin (his wife) all the best in France!  You can read an article about his new position by clicking here.

    Also, some of our new publications are now online, including Aaron Rossini's new work on 91Zr SSNMR experiments on metallocenes and catalytic pre-cursors (J. Am. Chem.

    Congratulations also to Aaron Rossini, who successfully defended his Ph.D. thesis, "Characterization of Inorganic Catalysts and Materials by Solid‑State NMR," on Sept. 17, 2010.  Robert Vold (from William & Mary) was his external examiner, and spent some time visiting our group as well.

  • September 2010

    We welcome Dr. Karen Johnston (Ph.D., St. Andrews, U.K.) to the laboratory as our new post-doctoral fellow, recently completing her Ph.D. in the laboratory of Prof. Sharon Ashbrook.  Also joining us is Jeff Donohue, who will be working in our laboratory to fulfill his co-op requirements in Physics.  Alex Reidel is now attending the University of Toronto, and is enrolled in the pharmacy program...we wish him well in his new program!

    Kris Harris and I attended the Solid-State NMR Symposium at the Rocky Mountain Conference for Analytical Chemistry, and presented two posters.  I was the chair elect this year, so things were quite busy.  The conference was excellent, and we found the time to do some serious mountain biking (pictures to come).

    Aaron Rossini's work on applying WURST-CPMG pulse sequences in nuclear quadrupole resonance (NQR) is now online: J. Magn. Reson. 2010, 206, 32-40.  DOI:10.1016/j.jmr.2010.05.018

Chem. 59-240 and NMR Spectroscopy 59-542/445, as well as supervising the Research Project 59-410.  We've also just kicked off our new 59-320 analytical labs, and have some new renovations done down in the teaching laboratories.  It was a good summer, and some of the new group pics are posted.

  • June 2010

    Congratulations to Hiyam Hamaed, who successfully defended her Ph.D thesis, "Solid-State NMR Spectroscopy of Unreceptive Nuclei in Inorganic and Organic Systems," on May 21, 2010.  Her external examiner was Prof. Tatyana Polenova from the University of Delaware, who also presented a departmental seminar, and spent some time visiting with our group.

    In other news, we presented three lectures and two posters at the 93rd Canadian Society for Chemistry Conference in Toronto, including topics such as applications and development of ultra-wideline NMR techniques, development of 115In NMR, 45Sc NMR of microencapsulated catalysts, and 89Y and 19F NMR of nanoparticles.  For more information, see our publications page.
