Gregory R. Choppin, Ph.D., Senior Scientist & Project Director: Radiochemistry
Dr. Gregory R. Choppin joined the faculty at Florida State University in 1956 and from 1968 to 1976 he served as Chairman of the Department of Chemistry.  He is a Robert O. Lawton Distinguished Professor of Chemistry at Florida State University.

Dr. Choppin serves as a consultant to Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Argonne National Laboratory, Los Alamos National Laboratory, Sandia National Laboratories, as well as several private laboratories.  He has received two honorary degrees, D.Sc. (Loyola University) and DTC (Chalmers University, Sweden).  His major research interests are inorganic and nuclear chemistry with emphasis on the lanthanide and actinide elements.  Potentiometry, calorimetry, NMR, and optical spectroscopy are among the methods used in his laboratory to study the thermodynamics and kinetics of complexation and redox behavior of these elements.  A major focus of his laboratory is on the separation science of actinides and the environmental speciation of actinides by inorganic and organic ligands.
