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.

The 2016 Award for Cooperative Research in Polymer Science and Engineering from American Chemical Society Division of Polymeric Materials Science and Engineering is given to Dr. Brian Benicewicz at University of South Carolina and Dr. Gordon Calundann for the collaborative work that spanned over a period of thirty five years during Dr. Calundann’s tenure at Celanese Corporation, Pemeas GmbH of Germany, and BASF Fuel Cell GmbH. This award was initiated in 1992, endowed by a generous gift from the Eastman Kodak Company. The 2016 award is presented in recognition of outstanding contributions in polymer science and engineering by the above collaborators in the areas of liquid crystalline polymers, high temperature membrane electrode assembly, membrane synthesis and fabrication, and polybenzimidazole (PBI)-based membranes for fuel cells and for hydrogen purification.
