Well done Ab on your solar fuels paper published in Advanced Energy Materials, January 2018, where you demonstrate a highly efficient ambient temperature Solar Sabatier process whereby CO2 photomethanation is catalyzed by nanostructured RuO2 on a silicon photonic crystal support … Continue reading
The U of T Solar Fuels Team has been selected as one of 20 semi-finalists from 160 applicant’s world wide, in the Ontario Center of Excellence Solutions 2030 Challenge Phase 1 competition, to find technological solutions to the greenhouse gas … Continue reading
Zheng-Min Wang, Wendong Wang and Geoffrey Ozin have discovered a synthetic pathway to a sandwich-type nanocomposite of reduced graphene oxide and periodic mesoporous silica in which mesochannels of silica vertically align with respect to the graphene layers with tunable mesochannel … Continue reading
To wrap up 2017, a summary of the Ozin group’s past, present, and future work is presented. Our work from Si nanocrystals, to our transition into solar fuels, and our vision of a circular carbon economy can be read here.
Well done Annabelle, Wei and Chenxi, Ab, Yuchan and Ziqi on your front cover graphic illustration of your paper entitled Tailoring CO2 Reduction with Doped Silicon Nanocrystals published in The article can be read on the Advanced Sustainable Systems, 2017, … Continue reading
Austria’s Museum of Applied Arts in Vienna opening in December will showcase a diorama of Prof. Ozin’s vision of a closed carbon cycle. More can be read on the University of Toronto website (I, II).
Andre Arsenault, Hernan Miguez, Ian Manners and Geoffrey Ozin co-invented photonic color technology, in the Chemistry Department, University of Toronto. In 2006, together they co-founded Opalux in order to develop the technology for a range of new and exciting applications. … Continue reading

Increasing the Supply of Renewable Electricity Creates Potential Energy Storage Applications for Synthetic Fuels
With the push towards renewable power generation and electrification, energy storage will likely require improvements to facilitate the increased electricity generation. In this op-ed, Prof. Ozin describes the potential for CO2 derived hydrocarbons as one of several energy storage techniques … Continue reading
Different CO2 utilization technologies are currently of interest as it is unlikely for just one technology to be the solution for climate change, but rather the combination of many sustainable technologies. In this op-ed, Geoff introduces the concept of Li-CO2 … Continue reading
