Report on the physical and theoretical chemistry programme at the Halifax congress.

The Division of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry had a very successful programme with 18 of the 20 oral sessions devoted to symposia. An additional two oral sessions were part of the joint symposium on theoretical organic chemistry. Sixty posters were presented in two well-attended sessions. A total of 196 papers (including late posters) were presented.

Following the introduction in 1989 of an annual award for the best poster presented by a student in the physical and theoretical portion of the 72,d Canadian Chemical Conference, the Division opened the competition in 1990 to oral and poster presentations. The Division Executive increased the funds available for the award, and authorized the panel of four judges to select two winners from the students nominated for consideration at the Halifax conference. The judges were impressed with the quality of the papers and noted that all of the nominees are winners'. Charlie MacPherson (Waterloo) received the 1990 Best Student Poster Award for his poster presentation, Thermal Desorption Study of Thiophene on Si(111)7x7'. Gerry Marangoni (Dalhousie) received the 1990 Best Student Paper Award for his oral presentation, Interaction of Alcohols and Ethoxylated Alcohols with Anionic and Cationic Surfactants'. The awards are sponsored by the Physical and Theoretical Chemistry Division and by Control Data Corp.
