Who is he? Dr. Yaghi's job as a chemist is concerned with linking of molecular building blocks into predetermined structures in which such units are repeated and are held together by strong bonds. Huh?? What?? I don't
get it. Have Adnan and
Rayyan lost their minds?? No we have not!
Well maybe, sorta,
a little... To put it in
simpler words, he works with
atoms, minerals, and chemicals. Omar Yaghi has made a major advancement in the development of CO2 capturing materials. Scientists at the UCLA Yaghi Laboratory demonstrated that they can successfully isolate and capture carbon dioxide with a class of new materials. He has discovered new
organic metals that
can be used to for power
and clean energy use. Omar Yaghi was named among the top 2 most cited chemists worldwide having achieved more than 200 citations per paper for over 100 papers (2000-2011). Dr. Yaghi writes for this science magazine occasionally. yaghi.chem.ucla.edu/ en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Omar_M._Yaghi Sources
