Norton elected to Royal Society
Chemistry Professor Peter Norton has been elected as a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada (RSC.
The honour recognizes an outstanding career in chemistry encompassing research related to corrosion in metals and alloys, lubrication and wear, and the microscopic mechanisms of thin-film growth on metals, semiconductors and polymers.
Norton's work has important applications in industry as well as developing innovations in nanotechnology, all in line with RSC's mandate of "enhancing Canada's competitiveness on a global basis."
