Donald R. Sadoway is the John F. Elliott Professor of Materials Chemistry in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He obtained the B.A.Sc. in Engineering Science, the M.A.Sc. in Chemical Metallurgy, and the Ph.D. in Chemical Metallurgy, all from the University of Toronto. After a year of postdoctoral study at MIT as a NATO Fellow, Dr. Sadoway joined the faculty in 1978. The author of over 125 scientific papers and holder of 14 U.S. patents, his basic research centers on electrochemical processes in molten salts, liquefied gases, and polymers. With a markedly environmental focus his applied research is directed towards environmentally sound technologies for the extraction, refining, and recycling of metals, the development of rechargeable batteries for portable power applications, and stationary batteries with colossal current capability for storage and delivery of off-peak power. From 1995 to 2005 he held a MacVicar Faculty Fellowship, MIT’s highest award for excellence in undergraduate education. In 1999 he became the John F. Elliott Professor of Materials Chemistry. In 2001 he was elected Member of the Norwegian Academy of Technological Sciences. In 2007 he was awarded the title of Honorary Professor at the University of Science & Technology Beijing.
