When Professor Omar Yaghi pioneered reticular chemistry in the 1990s, he did not envision that this breakthrough could change the world. He was more focused on the task at hand: stitching molecules together to build an entirely new class of materials. Soon, though, he discovered that the unique properties of his novel reticular materials could hold the key to mitigating the causes and effects of global warming. Now, after decades of progressive innovation, the time is right to leverage this technology to help solve our planet’s most significant crisis: climate change.
Thus, Atoco was born.
