College of Science
John A. Goodwin, professor of chemistry, joined the Coastal Carolina University faculty in 1996. Goodwin earned a bachelor's degree in chemistry and a bachelor's degree in saxophone performance from Transylvania University in Kentucky in 1982 and a Ph.D. in inorganic chemistry from Rice University in 1988.
Since coming to CCU, Goodwin has received more than $1 million in grant funding for laboratory research including international collaborations, chemical education projects and institutional advancement. He is an active member of the American Chemical Society and the Society of Porphyrins and Phthalocyanines. Goodwin maintains collaborations in chemical education at Stony Brook University and Northeastern University and research collaborations at USC, Clemson, Duke, Illinois State, Georgia State College and University, and the Molecular Structure Research Center in Yerevan, Armenia.
His expertise in the area of chemical research includes redox catalysts, including metalloporphyrin-mediated oxygen activation, making use of the synthesis of novel homogeneous and heterogeneous systems, air-sensitive manipulations, electrochemistry, rapid and traditional kinetics, spectroscopy and separations.
