Wolf in Japan

Makoto Fujita of the University of Tokyo is this year's recipient of the Wolf Prize in Chemistry. The award is in recognition of his research into metal-guided synthesis and "for conceiving metal-directed assembly principles leading to large highly porous complexes." He shares the 2018 prize with Omar Yaghi of the University of California, Berkeley, for his research "pioneering reticular chemistry via metal-organic frameworks and covalent organic framework."
