On January 30, 2013

 Dr. Robin Rogers, research professor and director of the Center for Green Manufacturing at the University of Alabama, will give a lecture titled "Green Chemistry, Technology and Innovation" at 7:30 p.m., Feb.4, at UTM. His presentation will be held in Watkins Auditorium of the Boling University Center.

Rogers holds 12 issued patents and has published over 685 papers on a diverse array of topics. His research interests cover the use of ionic liquids and green chemistry for sustainable technology through innovation. He has had an influential role in the expansion of interest and research in ionic liquid systems. His initial paper on ionic liquid/aqueous partitioning effectively kick-started interest in applying ionic liquids to clean separations.

Rogers is the founding editor-in-chief of the American Chemical Society journal "Crystal Growth & Design." He has co-organized a variety of meetings and symposia on industrial applications of ionic liquids, and he started the company 525 Solutions to enhance the commercial viability of new technologies. He was named a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry and was also named a Chinese Academy of Sciences Visiting Senior Scientist for the Institute for Process Engineering in Beijing, China.

"We are honored to partner with SMACS to bring such a distinguished scientist to UT Martin," said Dr. Lionel Crews, director of Honors Programs. "Developing ways to interact more intelligently with our environment is of paramount importance to our way of life, and Dr. Rogers is one who is making that happen."

The lecture is co-sponsored by the UTM Student Members of the American Chemical Society and Honors Programs.
