Professor Ozin was invited to contribute an opinion editorial for the occasion of his birthday, on the current state of technologies competing for viability in converting CO2 to a usable fuel. The articles discusses Audi’s recently announced “blue crude” process and other contenders including photochemical, electrochemical, and photothermal approaches.

Our group’s collaborative work with Dr. Thomas Bein and co-workers at Ludwig Maximilians University Munich will be featured on the back cover of an upcoming issue of Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. The abstract is included here:
A 3D covalent fullerene framework with a structure based on hexafunctionalized fullerene building blocks with octahedral symmetry is reported by T. Bein et al. in their Communication on page 7577 ff. Each fullerene in the highly ordered framework is separated from the next by six functional groups, and the mesoporosity is controlled by template-directed, evaporation-induced self-assembly with a block copolymer. The TEM images in the background show the periodic porous fullerene framework.
Professor Ozin was invited to contribute a piece outlining his breakthrough Eureka moments in honor of the recently awarded 2015 RSC Centenary Award. The piece discusses his work in defining, enabling, and popularising a chemical approach to nanomaterials for innovative nanotechnology in advanced materials and biomedical science.
