S. Richard Turner
S. Richard Turner, Ph.D.
Dr. Turner currently serves as Director of the Macromolecules and Interfaces Institute and Research Professor in the Chemistry Department at Virginia Tech. He is also a former Research Fellow at Eastman Chemical Polymers Research, Kingsport, TN. Dr. Turner's scientific interests focus on macromolecular chemistry, new materials, and nanocomposites. Dr. Turner is the author of over 80 scientific papers, and holds over 100 patents. Dr. Turner has received the Distinguished Inventors' Award from Eastman Kodak, and serves on numerous editorial boards. Major scientific and technical accomplishments include the synthesis and study of novel montmorillonite clay polyester nanocomposites for enhanced barrier and mechanical properties. A barrier resin package, ImpermTM was commercialized as a result of this work. Dr. Turner received his doctorate degree in Organic-Polymer Chemistry from University of Florida.

Richard Turner
Dr. S. Richard Turner has been named the recipient of the 2008 Industrial Polymer Science Award sponsored by the Industrial Sponsors Group of the American Chemical Society's Division of Polymer Chemistry. This award, in recognition of his outstanding industrial innovation and creativity in the application of Polymer Science, will be presented by the Division of Polymer Chemistry at the 2008 Fall National Meeting of the ACS in Philadelphia, PA. Richard has served a unique position in our professional society with significant accomplishments in the fundamentals of polymer chemistry, commercialization of novel families of polymers, and now through his role in the academic arena, the translation of this experience to the next generation of industrial scientists and engineers.
Richard's research accomplishments have had a major impact across a broad range of polymer science, ranging from novel polymers for new resist materials to polymer nanocomposites for barrier enhancement. His work has resulted in over 100 U.S. patents, and has led to the development of useful new polymerization processes as well as unusual monomers and polymeric materials. Richard is a graduate of Tennessee Technological University with both bachelors and masters degrees in Chemistry, and he completed his Ph.D. degree in Organic Polymer Chemistry at the University of Florida. After working at the Xerox Corporation Research Laboratories in Webster, New York, Richard moved to positions at Exxon Research and Engineering and the Corporate Research Laboratories at Eastman Kodak Company in Rochester, New York before joining the Polymers Research Division of Eastman Chemical Company where he was a Research Fellow. In 2004 he joined the faculty at Virginia Tech as Research Professor and Director of the Macromolecules and Interfaces Institute.

S. Richard Turner, MII director and research professor of chemistry at Virginia Tech, and Min Mao, a Ph.D. candidate in polymer chemistry, report the synthesis of a new family of charged, rod-like block copolymers.Only as long as a fraction of the diameter of human hair, the tiny rods can be either positive or negative, or can have alternating positive and negative charges along the backbone.The rods self-assemble and the aggregated structures are remarkable stable in saline solution, Turner said.
"The early results of this study suggest that these charged polymers self-assemble by like-charge interactions similar to such natural polymers as DNA," said Turner."The stable self-assembled structures could have potential applications in drug delivery and gene delivery systems."
But more immediate, "These unique block copolymers can be instructive models in understanding the forces that lead to the dense packing of DNA when complexed with viruses and other polymers," he said.
