The Catalysis Society of Metropolitan New York (CSNY) is a non-profit organization founded in 1958 to promote and encourage the growth and development of the science of catalysis in the New Jersey and Metro New York areas. CSNY is a local chapter of the North American Catalysis Society (NACS).

Virtual Meeting

We organize 7 monthly professional dinner seminar meetings of scientists - to report, discuss, and exchange information and viewpoints in the field of catalysis. We also organize an all-day Annual Symposium in March which features lectures from distinguished researchers and a poster session presented by university students working in the catalysis area.
Please click here to register for the meeting. To receive attendance details, refer to the email announcement or contact us.
The meeting is free to attend for members and non-members.
WHO WE ARE
Ya-Huei (Cathy) Chin is Professor of Chemical Engineering and Applied Chemistry at the University of Toronto. She is a Canada Research Chair (Tier II) in Advanced Catalysis for Sustainable Chemistry. She joined the University in 2011, after receiving her Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of California, Berkeley. Before then, she was a research engineer (2000-2002) and then senior research scientist (2002-2005) at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), one of the ten National Research Laboratories for the U.S. Department of Energy. Her recent work focuses on elucidating the molecular events during alkane oxidation on Group VIII metal clusters and conversion of oxygenates to value-added chemicals and liquid fuels. Specifically, she applies isotopic, kinetic, and density functional theory methods to study the dynamics of catalyst surfaces and catalytic pathways.
