The firm headquarters in New York City and is known internationally for its expertise in oxyhalogens, a chemical class that includes ozone, chlorine gas, chlorine dioxide, hypochlorite (bleach) and monochloramines. These are used to disinfect public water supplies, cooling water, wastewater, recreational water and most recently as supplemental disinfectants for domestic water in buildings.
Gilbert Gordon, Ph.D., was born in Chicago, Illinois. He is the Distinguished Research Professor Emeritus at Miami University, Oxford, Ohio. Dr. Gordon received his B.S. degree at Bradley University, his Ph.D. at Michigan State University and his Postdoctoral at the University of Chicago. He specializes in drinking water research, dynamics of chemical reactions (chemical kinetics), reactions of chlorine dioxide, chlorine and ozone (disinfectants and oxidizing agents) and analytical chemistry. Dr. Gordon has numerous honors and awards to his credit including: Visiting Professor as a guest of the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science; Chemist of the Year (1981) from the Cincinnati Section of the American Chemical Society; Distinguished Scientist (1982) from the Technical Societies Council, Cincinnati; Sigma Xi Researcher of the Year (1982) from the Miami University Chapter and the Prestigious Miami University Benjamin Harrison Medallion (1993) for Outstanding National and International Contributions to Education and Research to name a few. He is affiliated with the American Chemical Society, is a Fellow of the American Institute of Chemists and is a member of the American Water Works Association, the Chemical Society of London, a Fellow of the Ohio Academy of Science and a Life Member of Phi Kappa Phi. Dr. Gordon has published numerous works including co-authoring "Measuring Oxidant Species in Electrolyzed Salt Brine Solutions," "A Comparison of Sulfite Ion and Reduced Iron for the Removal of Bromate Ion," "Preliminary Data on the Fate of Bromate Ion in Simulated Gastric Juices" and "Bleach 2001." He also was the author of "Residual Ozone Measurement: Indigo Sensitivity Coefficient Adjustment." He has served as a consultant to many environmental agencies and water works districts. He has been married to his wife Joyce since 1957 and at home in Oxford, Ohio, he enjoys wine tasting, evaluation and collecting.
