Geoffrey A. Ozin received his B.Sc. degree in chemistry from King's College, University of London, in 1965, and his D.Phil. in inorganic chemistry from Oriel College, University of Oxford, in 1967. From 1967 to 1969 he was an ICI Post Doctoral Fellow at Southampton University before joining the chemistry faculty at the University of Toronto in 1969, where he is a Full Professor. His field of specialization is interdisciplinary materials chemistry with a focus on nano-chemistry and his current research interests include solidstate, supramolecular, host–guest inclusion, biomimetic, and microgravity chemistry.

We dedicate this paper to Dr. Edith Flanigen on the occasion of her recent retirement from research at UOP Edith had the amazing foresight to realize that crystalline porous materials should not just be viewed in terms of traditional zeolites and the linking together of tetrahedral silicate and aluminate building blocks but, rather more holistically, in the context of the entire periodic table. Now many of the elements of the periodic table are being linked together into a myriad of architecturally exquisite open frameworks. There is now as much research with open network materials as there is with dense-packed solids. The creative and lateral thinking of Dr. Robert Bedard around 1985 at Union Carbide led him, together with Dr. Edith Flanigen and two other coworkers, to invent the microporous metal sulfide class of materials in 1989 . This is now an emerging and exciting subfield of materials chemistry
