Galen D. Stucky

Galen D. Stucky is a world renowned American inorganic materials chemist most famous for his work with porous ordered mesoporous materials such as SBA-15. He has been ranked in the top five most cited materials scientist in the world according to Thomson Scientific's in-cites publication (over 80 publications with over 60 citations). [ [ in-cites - Second Bimonthly Period of 2007 - Top 10 Researchers In Materials Science] ] According to another publication by Thomson in late 2006, his work involving SBA is the most cited paper in the Journal of the American Chemical Society which is one of the top 10 most-cited journals across all fields. [ [ SCI-BYTES: Top Ten Most-Cited Journals (All Fields), 1996-2006] ] His Hirsch index rating ranks essentially in the top 30 amongst all living chemists [ [ H-index ranking of living chemists] ] and he was ranked within the top 30 Most-Cited Scientists in Chemistry by in-cites in late 2007. [ [ Most-Cited Scientists in Chemistry (Jan 97 - Jun 07)] ] In June 2008, a newly launched web-site called by Thomson Scientific (now part of Thomson Rueters) featured 'Mesoporous Materials' as a Special Topics analysis publication which highlights Prof. Stucky as the top leader in the area. [ [ Mesoporous Materials, Special Topics,, June 2008] ]

He received his Ph.D. degree in Physical Chemistry from Iowa State University (Advisor: R. E. Rundle) in 1962. In 1962-63, he was a postdoctoral associate in the Department of Physics at MIT (Prof. Clifford G. Shull). His independent academic career started in 1964 where he was a professor of Inorganic Chemistry at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Later in 1972, Dr. Stucky was promoted to Full Professor at UIUC but left in 1980 to work at Sandia National Laboratory and the DuPont Central Research and Development. He joined the faculty of the University of California, Santa Barbara, in 1986 where he is now the E. Khashoggi Industries, LLC Professor in Letters and Science, Professor in the Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry (College of Letters and Science), Professor in the Materials Department (College of Engineering), and a member of the Interdepartmental Program in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. [ [ The Stucky Group: Home at UCSB] ] Dr. Stucky lives with his wife, Kaaren, in Santa Barbara, California and has two sons, David and Mark Stucky.

Alumni of Prof. Stucky's research group includes graduate students, postdoctoral research associates, visiting faculty/students and intern students from all over the world. Many of these past group members hold various positions in academia, industry, and government institutions around the globe. Amongst the people in academia and R&D institutions include Prof. Angela Belcher (MIT) [ [ Biomolecular Materials Group at MIT] ] , Prof. Peidong Yang (Berkeley) [ [ The Peidong Yang Group at Berkeley] ] , Prof. Dongyuan Zhao (Fudan Univ.) [ [ The Zhao Group at Fudan University] ] , Prof. Sarah Tolbert (UCLA) [ [ Tolbert Research Group at UCLA] ] , Prof. Frank Marlow (Max-Planck) [ [ Research Group of Frank Marlow (Nanostructures and Optical Materials) at Max-Planck Institute] ] , Prof. Michael Wong (Rice) [ [ Catalysis and Nanomaterials Laboratory at Rice] ] , Prof. Stephen O'Brien (Columbia) [ [ The Stephen O'Brien Research Group at Columbia] ] , Prof. Michael McGehee (Stanford) [ [ McGehee Group at Stanford] ] , Prof. Jerry Atwood (Missouri) [ [ Jerry L. Atwood at Univ. of Missouri - Columbia] ] , Prof. Thomas Bein (Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitat Munchen) [ [ Bein Research Group at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitat Munchen] ] , Prof. Pingyun Feng (UC Riverside) [ [ Pingyun Feng Profile at UC Riverside] ] , Prof. Jeffry Kelber (North Texas) [ [ Surface Science Laboratory at Univ. of North Texas] ] , Dr. Tina Nenoff (Sandia) [ [ Tina M. Nenoff - Sandia National Laboratories] ] and etc. He is also the co-chair of the Scientific Advisory Board of the Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (IBN), A*STAR, Singapore [ [ Scientific Advisory Board of the Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology, A*STAR, Singapore] ] which is headed by Prof. Jackie Y. Ying (Executive Director of IBN [ [ IBN Director's Message] ] and adjunct professor of chemical engineering at MIT [ [ Prof. Jackie Y. Ying's profile at MIT] ] ). In late 2006, former and current group members and colleagues gathered together and held a 'Symposium on Recent Advances in Nanoscale Materials Research' at UCSB to celebrate Prof. Stucky's 70th birthday [ [ Symposium on Recent Advances in Nanoscale Materials Research at UCSB, 8 December 2006] ] which was hosted by CNSI (Elings Hall [ [ UCSB Receives $12.5 Million Gift from Virgil Elings and Betty Elings, 4 June 2007] ] )at UCSB.
