Professor Ozin was awarded the Royal Society of Chemistry’s Centenary Prize for 2015. The prize is awarded to outstanding chemists, who are also exceptional communicators, from overseas to give lectures in the British Isles. The Centenary Prize was founded in 1947 to commemorate the centenary of the Chemical Society in 1841. In 1980, the Chemical Society and the Royal Institute of Chemistry, together with the Faraday Society and the Society for Analytical Chemistry, became the Royal Society of Chemistry.
The 2015 Prize was awarded to Professor Geoffrey Ozin for his work in defining, enabling and popularising a chemical approach to nanomaterials for innovative nanotechnology in advanced materials and biomedical science. He delivered Centenary Lectures at Cambridge University and Imperial College London University on the subject of ‘Solar Powered CO2 to Fuel’ and he attended the RSC Award Ceremony that was held in Manchester Cathedral where he received a medal, certificate and monetary prize.
