Stanley E. Manahan is Professor Emeritus of Chemistry at the University of Missouri-Columbia, where he has been on the faculty since 1965. He received his A.B. in chemistry from Emporia State University in Kansas in 1960 and his Ph.D. in analytical chemistry from the University of Kansas in 1965. Since 1968, his primary research and professional activities have been in environmental chemistry, with recent emphasis on hazardous waste treatment. His latest research has involved gasification of wastes and gasification of sewage sludge and crop byproduct biomass for energy production. Professor Manahan has taught courses on environmental chemistry, hazardous wastes, toxicological chemistry, and analytical chemistry and has lectured on these topics throughout the U.S. as an American Chemical Society Local Sections tour speaker and in a number of countries including France, Italy, Austria, Japan, Mexico, and Venezuela. Professor Manahan has written books on environmental chemistry (Environmental Chemistry, 9th ed., 2010, Taylor & Francis/CRC press, and Fundamentals of Environmental Chemistry, 3rd ed., 2009, Taylor & Francis/CRC press), green chemistry (Green Chemistry and the Ten Commandments of Sustainability, 3rd ed., 2010, ChemChar Research), water chemistry (Water Chemistry: Green Science and Technology of Nature’s Most Renewable Resource, Taylor & Francis/CRC Press, 2011), general chemistry (Fundamentals of Sustainable Chemical Science 2009, Taylor & Francis/CRC Press), environmental geology (Environmental Geology and Geochemistry, Amazon and Barnes & Noble Nook Books, 2011), the anthropocene (Environmental Chemistry of the Anthropocene: A World Made by Humans, Amazon and Barnes & Noble Nook Books, 2011), climate change (Environmental Chemistry of Global Climate Change, Amazon and Barnes & Noble Nook Books, 2011), environmental science (Environmental Science: Sustainability in the Anthropocene, Amazon and Barnes & Noble Nook Books, 2011), hazardous wastes and industrial ecology (Industrial Ecology: Environmental Chemistry and Hazardous Waste, 1999, Lewis Publishers/CRC Press), toxicological chemistry (Toxicological Chemistry and Biochemistry, 3rd ed., 2002, Lewis Publishers/CRC Press), applied chemistry, and quantitative chemical analysis. He is the author or co-author of approximately 90 research articles.
