In Remembrance of Dr. Leslie Sperling

Posted on March 21, 2016 at 9:20 PM

Dr. Leslie Howard Sperling, one of the founding members of the Polymer Science & Engineering program at Lehigh University, died at his home on February 1, 2016. Les will perhaps be most remembered for his pioneering work on polymer blends and specifically interpenetrating polymer networks (IPNs). Later in life, he focused on polymer nomenclature and the addition of polymer science to traditional chemistry courses. Les was very active in ACS and belonged to the POLY/PMSE Polymer Education Committee and the ACS Nomenclature Committee. He also served PMSE as a Member at Large. Les was selected as a PMSE Fellow in 2002 and as an ACS Fellow in 2010. In 2012, PMSE honored Les with their Distinguished Service Award.
