Faces of Science: John Gordon

John Gordon remembers one high-school science class in which they discussed the chemistry of sugars. Today, he's interested in the use of carbohydrates not as a form of nutrition but as renewable and sustainable sources of hydrocarbon fuels.

Faces of Science: John Gordon

John Gordon’s passion grew while attending school in Scotland, where a series of chemistry and physics teachers instilled in him a sense of curiosity as to how things worked in nature and the universe.

He is currently developing methods that use carbohydrates as renewable and sustainable sources of hydrocarbon fuels.

Like his Scottish teachers, John works to motivate younger scientists toward tackling important societal problems.



John Gordon works for C-IIAC's Inorganic Isotope & Actinide Chemistry group.
