Stanislaus S. Wong has earned recognition for his work investigating not only the covalent surface chemistry of carbon nanotubes, but also the synthesis, characterization and applications of metal-containing nanostructures. He and his group are interested in developing viable sustainable strategies for producing novel nanomaterials of relevance not only for batteries, fuel cells, and solar cells, but also for nanomedicine and theranostics.

Elected as a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the American Chemical Society, the Royal Society of Chemistry, and the National Academy of Inventors, Dr. Wong has received the American Chemical Society Inorganic Nanoscience Award, an Alfred P. Sloan Fellowship, the ACS Buck-Whitney Award, a National Science Foundation CAREER Award, in addition to the SUNY Chancellor’s Award for Excellence in Scholarship and Creative Activities. Professor Wong has served as a Section Editor for Nanotechnology and is currently an Executive Editor for ACS Applied Materials and Interfaces
