Board Chair Philip Jessop has selected some outstanding research to share with you from Green Chemistry. Read them now for free until the end of December 2020!
Dr. Philip Jessop, FRSC, is the Canada Research Chair of Green Chemistry at Queen’s University in Kingston, Canada and the Technical Director of GreenCentre Canada. As a professor at the University of California-Davis (1996-2003) and since then at Queen’s, he has studied green solvents and the chemistry of CO2 and H2. He invented the concept of switchable solvents and has developed many other CO2-switchable materials. Distinctions include the Eni Award for New Frontiers for Hydrocarbons (2013), Fellowship in the Royal Society of Canada (2013), the Canadian Green Chemistry & Engineering Award (2012), and the NSERC Polanyi Award (2008). He has chaired three international conferences and helped create GreenCentre Canada, a National Centre of Excellence for the commercialization of green chemistry technologies.
