Nine Queen’s University faculty members have been elected to the Royal Society of Canada, the highest number of inductees the university has had in one year. Fellowship in the RSC is one of the highest recognitions for Canadian academics in the arts, humanities, and the social and natural sciences. Seven of the nine electees are from the Faculty of Arts and Science!

Forget heavy metal, they're talking light metal at Queen's University. Well, at least a light coating for metal anyway.

Queen's University chemistry professors Dr. Crudden and Dr. Horton teamed up two years ago to find a practical use for an organic to bond with metal.

Watch this video to learn more about how this discovery can be applied to everyday use.

Queen’s University researchers Cathleen Crudden and Hugh Horton (Chemistry), along with students, postdoctoral fellows and other collaborators have developed a new process that allows organic compounds to bind to metal surfaces. This cutting-edge technology is now being patented and commercialized by PARTEQ and Green Centre Canada.
