Dr. Kerton's office C4007 is on the same floor and corridor as the main chemistry department office, C4000.

Our research focuses on green chemistry, encompassing three main themes:

1. Catalysis (including organometallic chemistry)

2. Solvent replacement (including supercritical fluids)

3. Renewable feedstocks

Much of our research encompasses aspects of Materials Science including nanoparticles, biorenewable materials and polymer chemistry.
