John Warner, Ph.D.
Chair: John Warner, Ph.D.
The Warner Babcock Institute for Green Chemistry
After establishing the world’s first Green Chemistry Ph.D. program, Warner now directs a large research group working on a diverse set of projects involving green chemistry using principles of crystal engineering, molecular recognition and self-assembly. He is the editor of the Journal “Green Chemistry Letters and Reviews.” He was awarded the American Institute of Chemistry’s Northeast Division’s Distinguished Chemist of the Year for 2002, and the Presidential Award for Excellence in Science, Mathematics and Engineering Mentoring in 2005. His recent patents in the fields of semiconductor design, biodegradable plastics, personal care products and polymeric photoresist films are examples of how green chemistry principles can be immediately incorporated into commercially relevant applications. Warner is co-author of “Green Chemistry: Theory and Practice.”
