Professor Justin Perry Public Lecture

Northumbria University


'Connections with Chemistry'

Professor Justin Perry, Professor of Chemistry

As well as being one of the classic “big three” scientific disciplines, chemistry can help answer questions in other fields of research. During his research career, Professor Perry has worked at the intersection of chemistry and biology to discover new and less polluting chemical processes which adapt naturally occurring biochemistry for industrial processes. He will also describe how he has used complex chemistry analysis to aid art historians to identify and date works of art ranging from ancient mummies to the 20th Century’s most important British artist, Francis Bacon. Finally he will demonstrate that a multidisciplinary approach to the manufacture of polymers will provide the materials of tomorrow.
