Abstract:
Professor Geoffrey Ozin, Canada Research Chair in Materials Science at the University of Toronto, has been selected by the Royal Society of Chemistry to receive the 2011 Barrer award for his major contributions to fundamental scientific & technological advances in the field of nanoporous materials.

Professor Geoffrey Ozin is 2011 Barrer Award Recipient

Toronto, Canada | Posted on August 30th, 2011

The Barrer award is presented every three years to a researcher who has performed meritorious recent pure or applied work in the field of porous inorganic materials, and is named for Richard Maling Barrer, chemist, membrane scientist, and the founder of zeolite chemistry.

Citing his creative contributions to the field of nanotechnology, the RSC names Professor Ozin as "one of the first to identify the importance of materials filled with nanoscale holes", and cite two revolutionary papers, Advanced Zeolite Materials Science, published in 1989 in Angewandte Chemie, and Nanochemistry - Synthesis in Diminishing Dimensions, published in Advanced Materials in 1992.

This research has since gone on to spawn a whole field of scientific endeavor, touching areas such as sensing, energy, and even healthcare: some of the latest breakthroughs in the field include nanocrystalline tin that stores the lithium for Li-ion batteries in its pores, and the nanoporous silicon microparticles that ferry therapeutic nanoparticles to bone marrow.
