Faculty Profile

Stanley I. Sandler

H.B. duPont Professor, Emeritus
Professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry


  • Doctorate – 1966 University of Minnesota
  • Bachelors – 1962 City College of New York


The major expense in the chemical pharmaceutical industries is the separations and purifications processes that are largely designed on the basis of phase equilibrium. Thermophysical properties and phase equilibria also play important roles in biochemical processing, environmental engineering and risk and safety analysis. Our research program encompasses each of these areas and includes basic theory, experimental measurements, and supercomputer simulation.
