Influence of Polymerization Kinetics and Reactor Residence Time Distribution on the Microstructure of Polyolefins Made with Multiple-Site Catatlysts
Joao Soares
This presentation will explain the methodology developed in our laboratories to measure the detailed polymerization kinetics of ethylene and -olefins with metallocene catalysts. This information is essential to scale up experimental results measured in R&D laboratories to industrial reactor scale, to optimize polymerization conditions, and to produce new polyolefin grades.

New Heterogeneous Catalysts Based on Integrative Approaches
Hua Chun Zeng
Despite decades of research, the prevailing catalyst technology for heterogeneous catalysis remains largely as an art than as a science. Rapid development of nanotechnology and materials chemistry in recent decades however provides us new capacity to reexamine the existing catalyst design and processing methods. In this presentation, we will report some of our recent progress in this technologically important area development of state-of-the-art catalytic nanomaterials.

Study: Early engagement key to getting girls into science careers
The Globe and Mail
Girls are almost three times more likely to consider careers in science, math and engineering if they participate in science fairs and summer camps, according to a new Canadian report. The study by researchers at Mount Saint Vincent University in Halifax also suggests that good grades and teacher influence matters less than exposure to these outside-the-classroom activities.

Nova Scotia study explores how to get girls interested in math, science careers
The Kings County News
The fact that so few women work in the male-dominated fields of science and math is more than just a research interest for Mount Saint Vincent University professor Karen Blotnicky — it's personal. "I was the only girl in my Grade 12 physics class," said Blotnicky. "My teacher literally said, 'Girls aren't good at science,' and my job was to clean the room."
