Art Greenberg was born in Brooklyn, New York. He received a Ph.D. in Chemistry from Princeton University in 1971. Following faculty positions at Frostburg State College, New Jersey Institute of Technology, Rutgers University-New Brunswick Campus, and the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, he joined the University of New Hampshire in July 2000 as Dean of the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences and Professor of Chemistry. Following a full term as dean he assumed full time duties in the Department of Chemistry.
Dr. Greenberg’s research is in the areas of high-energy organic molecules, environmental organic chemistry and history of chemistry. He is author or co-author of 125 refereed papers and chapters, author of 5 books (one of these translated into Japanese and Portuguese), and co-editor of 18 books. He is a founding co-editor of the journal Structural Chemistry.
Dr. Greenberg collects rare books in early chemistry and alchemy, sings with Portsmouth Pro Musica and enthusiastically roots (even prior to 2004) for the Boston Red Sox- since hope for the Dodgers’ return to Brooklyn continues to diminish ever so slightly year by year.
