Andrew D Sutton

Group Leader and Senior Scientist

Andrew Sutton Ph.D. is an ORNL R&D Senior Scientist and Group Leader for the Chemical Process Scale-Up Group at ORNL. He has extensive synthetic experience in the synthesis of fuels and chemicals from bioderived molecules by using bioderived building blocks to rationally construct more complex carbon scaffolds.  This includes the development, synthesis and characterization of new catalysts and catalytic materials to perform carbon-carbon bond forming reactions and selective defunctionalization using low temperature and low-pressure systems in order to minimize the energy usage while increasing the overall carbon yield of the product.
