Noted green chemist to talk at UT Sept. 30

Dr. John Warner, a pioneer of green chemistry, will visit The University of Toledo this week to help the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry celebrate its 100th anniversary.

The two-day centennial celebration will feature Warner’s presentation and a banquet at the Toledo Museum of Art.

Warner’s free, public presentation, “Green Chemistry: The Missing Elements,” will take place Wednesday, Sept. 30, at 4 p.m. in Doermann Theater.

As president and chief technology officer of Warner Babcock Institute for Green Chemistry, Warner is one of the fathers of the green chemistry field — a relatively new area of study focusing on the design of chemical products and processes that reduce or eliminate the generation of hazardous substances. With Paul Anastas, he co-authoredGreen Chemistry: Theory and Practice.

Warner has published more than 200 patents, papers and books, and has numerous awards. His honors include being elected a Fellow of the American Chemical Society and being named one of 25 Visionaries Changing the World by Utne Reader in 2011.

He and Anastas also will give remarks at the Centennial Banquet on Thursday, Oct. 1, at 5:30 p.m. in the Toledo Museum of Art’s GlasSalon. The cost for attendees is $30 and $15 for students.
