The 98th Canadian Society for Chemistry (CSC) Conference was hosted here in Ottawa last week June 13th Р17th. This was the first CSC conference which is the preeminent chemistry conference in Canada. Phil was a volunteer for the Materials Symposium, presented a poster in the Nanoporous Materials Section, and presented a talk in the Computational Chemistry and Applications section.11356222_10155637275895456_926608320_n

His poster presented collaborative work with Dr. Ramanathan Vaidhyanathan from the India Institute for Science and Education and Research on novel ultra-microporous MOFs for carbon dioxide capture. His talk presented collaborative work with Dr. Robert Ben on ice recrystallization inhibitors.

This will be the last time attending a conference as a student at the University of Ottawa! His poster and talks were well attended and was a great way to cap off his Masters career.
