Nicholas Turro and the legacy

Nicholas Turro died on November 24, 2012. 

Many of us learned from his photochemistry book, watched his photochemistry videos, met him in person, listened to his presentation on supramolecular photochemistry, and read his recent work on the applications of click chemistry. 

Dr Turro is a truly classy figure in many ways: one of the giants of modern photochemistry;  leader and trail-blazer of creative research in new fields; excellent teacher, educator and lecturer to many levels; superb book writer and natural presenter; father of the large "Turro" academic family; member of NAS and AAAS; recipient of many elite awards. 

A big loss and many will miss him.
