Dr. Robin D. Rogers is currently Canada Excellence Research Chair in Green Chemistry and Green Chemicals at McGill University in Montreal, Canada. He obtained both his B.S. in Chemistry (1978, Summa Cum Laude) and his Ph.D. in Chemistry (1982) at The University of Alabama before starting his professorial career at Northern Illinois University in DeKalb, IL where he rose through the ranks to become Presidential Research Professor. In 1996, he returned to UA as a Professor where he held various titles including Distinguished Research Professor, Robert Ramsay Chair of Chemistry, and Director of the Center for Green Manufacturing. In 2007 he was also Chair of Green Chemistry and Co-Director of QUILL at The Queen’s University of Belfast in Northern Ireland (UK) before returning full time to UA from 2009-2014. Since 2009, he has been an Honorary Professor at the Chinese Academy of Sciences Institute for Process Engineering in Beijing, China. Rogers holds 21 issued patents and has published over 750 papers on a diverse array of topics. His research interests cover the use of ionic liquids and Green Chemistry for sustainable technology through innovation and include Materials (advanced polymeric and composite materials from biorenewables), Separations (novel strategies for separation and purification of value added products from biomass), Energy (new lubricant technologies and selective separations), and Medicine (elimination of waste while delivering improved pharmaceutical performance). He has been cited over 31,000 times and has a Hirsch index of 80. Rogers was named in the 2014 Thomas Reuters Highly Cited Researchers List ranking among the top 1% most cited in chemistry. In 2006, Rogers was named a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry and in 2009 was selected to the inaugural class of American Chemical Society Fellows. In 2010, he was named a Chinese Academy of Sciences Visiting Senior Scientist for the Institute for Process Engineering, Beijing, China. He was elected a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in 2012 and that same year named an ACS Division of Industrial & Engineering Chemistry Fellow. Rogers is the Founding Editor-in-Chief of the American Chemical Society journal Crystal Growth & Design. He is also an editorial board member of Separation Science & Technology, Solvent Extraction and Ion Exchange, and Chemistry Letters, as well as a member of the international advisory boards for Green Chemistry, Chemical Communications, and ChemSusChem. 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 (Chem. Comm. 1998, 1765) effectively kick-started interest in applying ionic liquids to clean separations. In 2005 he was awarded the US Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award (Academic Division) for work related to the use of ionic liquids in sustainable technology. This technology was licensed later that year to BASF. He was awarded the American Chemical Society Separations Science & Technology award in 2011 and in 2012, he was named recipient of the Paul Walden Award given by the DFG-SPP 1191 Priority Program on Ionic Liquids. Rogers has co-organized a variety of meetings and symposia on Industrial Applications of Ionic Liquids and he has started a company (525 Solutions) to enhance the commercial viability of new technologies. The breadth of educational, research, editorial, and service endeavors gives Rogers a broad perspective on science and engineering research, development, and technology transfer.
