Group Awarded NSERC Alliance Funding

This collaboration with deutraMed Inc. aims to develop new syntheses for different deuterated small-molecule organics, and develop the analytical techniques for assessing the incorporation of deuterium into these molecules. Together, they will also work towards reducing the amount of energy needed in the manufacturing process and recovering deuterated waste streams for purification and reuse, to reduce the environmental impact of this research and development.
