Stanley Bruckenstein received his Ph.D. in chemistry (1954) in the Institute of Technology at the University of Minnesota. He has distinguished himself as a teacher and mentor, and a researcher through his contributions in the fields of analytical chemistry. His academic career began at the University of Minnesota as an instructor. He was promoted rapidly and went on to become the Chief of the Division of Analytical Chemistry, which was considered to be the top school for research in the field of analytical chemistry. In 1969, he left the University of Minnesota to join the faculty at the University of Buffalo where he was chairman and Conger Goodyear Professor. An accomplished author and editor, he has published more than 182 papers (since 1975), which have been cited 3,589 times. He co-authored the textbook "Quantitative Chemical Analysis," with Professor Kolthoff, which has been used to educate students at hundreds of universities over the past several decades. It has been translated into six languages and is considered to be the "bible" for this branch of chemistry. He is the recipient of numerous awards including the Reilley Award, which is the leading U.S. award for electrochemistry, and the American Chemical Society Award in electrochemistry. He has served on many journal editorial boards and on boards at the National Science Foundation, National Academy of Science, Food and Drug Administration, and the Electrochemical Society.
