PCCP lists 25 most cited Canadian research articles (April 17/11)

Physical Chemisty Chemical Physics has announced that the Canadian Society for Chemistry (CSC) is now one of its co-owner societies. To celebrate this new partnership, PCCP has created a collection of 25 top cited articles from authors based in Canada to showcase some of the great Canadian research published in PCCP. Five articles on this list are from Canadian solid-state NMR research groups, including four papers enabled by the National Ultrahigh-Field NMR Facility for Solids.

MOOT 2009 NMR minisymposium (May 13/09)

Dear NMR enthusiasts,

You are all invited to attend and participate at the 22nd edition of the MOOT mini NMR symposium in Ottawa. The event will be held 17-18 October 2009 at the Chemistry Department, Carleton University.

Already, a block of rooms have been held at the Quality Inn Hotel 290 Rideau Street, Ottawa ON K1N 5Y3 (613) 789-7511 at the fabulous price of 119$/night (single) and 129$/night (double). The Hotel is well located near the Byward Market to facilitate social exchanges after scientific activities.

Soon, i.e. when I get my act together, consult the website (www.mootnmr.org) for all the details. If you have any questions you can email me at mootnmr@gmail.com

I hope to see you all in Ottawa in the Fall,


Yves Aubin
