Professor Khaled Belkacemi among shooting victims in Québec

The green chemistry community mourns the loss of Professor Khaled Belkacemi of Laval University in Québec, Canada. His contributions in the area of heterogeneous catalysis for biomass conversion and food chemistry help the drive to make the world a greener place. Unfortunately, violence against Muslims took his life at a mosque in Québec on the 29th of January. We mourn his passing, send our condolences to his family and colleagues, and hope that the future will bring us greater tolerance as well as a greener society.
