ch includes pioneering studies of new classes of nanomaterials, nanoporous materials, nanophotonic crystals and most recently nanomachines, epitomizes how cutting-edge research in nanochemistry can be effectively directed towards tackling contemporary challenges in nanotechnology through novel, practical solutions applied to a whole range of fields.

The group of scientists and students led by Professor Ozin have created nanoscale architectures able to control electrons and photons in unprecedented ways. Several applications are foreseen for the fruits of his nanomaterials research, including greater efficiency solar cells for clean energy generation, more efficacious photocatalysts to clean up environmental pollutants, full colour energy-conserving displays, improved banknote and product authentification devices, optical circuits for more powerful computers, and the development of futuristic nanomachines for medical applications, such as chemically-powered targeted drug delivery vehicles for cancer therapy.

Geoffrey Ozin has also been a leader in education, taking generations of students far beyond the traditional chemistry syllabus. As a renowned educator he has published the best selling undergraduate textbook Concepts in Nanochemistry (VCH-Wiley, 2009) and graduate textbook (Nanochemistry: A Chemical Approach to Nanomaterials, RSC, 2009). They are now both widely adopted around the world for teaching nanochemistry.

Over the span of his career, he has continued to push back boundaries and enrich knowledge in the field of Chemistry. He has published 625 articles in top- ranking journals, garnering over 25,000 citations.

Professor Ozin has won numerous awards for his contributions to chemistry, including the most recent 2010 Premier Discovery Prize for Natural Sciences and Engineering, the highest honour that the Province of Ontario can bestow upon one of its scientists. He currently holds the unique rank of Distinguished Univer
