Dr. Zachary M. Hudson
Assistant Professor and Canada Research Chair in Sustainable Chemistry
Research in the Hudson group focuses on the development of photonic and electronic materials to address issues of sustainability in chemistry and materials science. Our group synthesizes new molecular and polymeric materials for applications in sensing, printed electronics, and efficient solid-state lighting. We also explore the synthesis of functional nanostructures from soft materials, their self-assembly into complex architectures, and their emerging applications in nanoscale electronics.

News from the Hudson Group:
Congratulations to the Hudson group's first graduate, Kelly Wang, for successfully defending her MSc thesis.
Congratulations to Donny and coworkers for their latest work, "An efficient room-temperature synthesis of highly phosphorescent styrenic Pt(II) complexes and their polymerization by ATRP".
Congratulations to Cheyenne and coworkers on publishing their latest work, "Synthesis of phosphorescent iridium‐containing acrylic monomers and their room‐temperature polymerization by Cu(0)‐RDRP".
A warm welcome to our new undergraduates, Lingzi Gao and Jay Paeng, and Ph.D. students, Jade Poisson and Alex Polgar.
Zac has been appointed to NSERC Council, tasked with setting national science policy to achieve Canada's research goals.
Zac has been awarded a Tier 2 CRC in Sustainable Chemistry for his work on efficient lighting technologies. On hand for the announcement and a lab tour were Minister of Science Kirsty Duncan and Parliamentary Secretary for Science Terry Beech.
