Watch the ICN2 Manuel Cardona Lecture by Prof. Omar M. Yaghi

Prof. Yaghi pioneered the new field of reticular chemistry. In June 8 2018 Prof. Yaghi offered a Manuel Cardona Lecture invited by ICREA Prof. Daniel Maspoch. The ICN2 invites you to enjoy Prof. Yaghi’s inspiring talk.

The ICN2 proudly presents a lecture by Prof. Omar M. Yaghi, the James and Neeltje Tretter Chair Professor of Chemistry at the University of California, Berkeley. Widely known for the discovery and development of several classes of new materials, Prof. Yaghi pioneered the new field of reticular chemistry, which he defines as “stitching molecular building blocks into extended structures by strong bonds”.

Among the new materials he has designed are metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), covalent organic frameworks (COFs) and zeolitic imidazolate frameworks (ZIFs), noted for their high surface area and versatile applicability in clean energy technologies and water harvesting.

In June 8 2018 Prof. Yaghi offered a Manuel Cardona Lecture invited by ICREA Prof. Daniel Maspoch, Group Leader of the ICN2 Supramolecular Nanochemistry and Materials Group. These lectures provide the opportunity to hear from some of the most prominent researchers in nano-related fields. They stand in tribute to Prof. Manuel Cardona, a key figure in the history of the ICN2.

We kindly invite you to enjoy Prof. Yaghi’s inspiring talk:
