Check out this award video.

The citation reads:

A pioneer of nanochemistry, Ozin has inspired innovative, transformative, technological advances around the world. He was one of the first scientists in the field to identify the importance of a chemical approach to nanostructured materials, driving many of today’s nanotechnologies in biology, physics and engineering. Through his Ontario company Opalux, Ozin is commercializing photonic crystal technology – which holds the potential to create full-colour displays that use dramatically less energy than current products.The company is also developing food packaging that changes colours when the contents go bad, photocatalysts that clean up pollution and privacy protecting printable serial numbers and security codes that can become invisible to the human eye when necessary.
