Bryan Barton, Ph.D., has been selected to present The Kavli Foundation Emerging Leader in Chemistry Lecture at the American Chemical Society (ACS) Fall 2020 Virtual Meeting & Expo. The meeting will take place Aug. 17-20 with the theme of “Moving Chemistry from Bench to Market.”

Barton is a research group leader at DuPont Electronics & Imaging, where he leads a team developing new materials for chemical mechanical planarization (CMP), a key process in semiconductor fabrication. In his lecture, “Innovator’s Guide to Industrial Impact,” he will share learnings from his recent work at DuPont developing novel polyurethane chemistries for the semiconductor industry, as well as prior work at The Dow Chemical Company in which he developed a carbon-fiber manufacturing process for the automotive industry.

“Leading an R&D group at DuPont, my team is able to deliver innovative solutions that meet our customers’ emerging needs, and technical success also corresponds to a strong commercial and industry impact,” Barton said. “I’m sincerely honored to be selected for the Kavli Foundation lectureship and look forward to sharing perspectives on industrial innovation during the ACS Fall Meeting.”

Barton earned his bachelor’s degree in chemistry at Millikin University and his doctorate in chemistry at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

The Kavli Foundation Emerging Leader in Chemistry lectureship is awarded to an outstanding early career chemical scientist who is highly regarded by his or her peers for significant contributions to an area of chemistry or a multidisciplinary area of chemistry.
