Leslie Glasser was born and raised in South Africa, qualifying in 1956 with a Bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Cape Town. In 1960 he was awarded the Ph. D. (Chem. Eng.) from University of London as well as the Diploma of Imperial College, London (Chem. Phys.), under the supervision of the renowned thermodynamicist A. R. J.-P. Ubbelohde. Thereafter, he became Lecturer in Physical Chemistry at University of Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, then Professor of Physical Chemistry at Rhodes University, Grahamstown, and finally at University of Witwatersrand. He undertook extended sabbatical periods at Princeton University (with C. P. Smyth), Max-Planck Institut, Göttingen (L. de Maeyer), University of Aberystwyth, Wales (J. M. Thomas), Cornell University (H. A. Scheraga), Royal Institution, London (C. R. A. Catlow), Bologna University (D. Braga).

He is Professor Emeritus of the University of Witwatersrand and Adjunct Research Professor at Curtin University, Perth, Western Australia.

His publications cover a wide range of Physical Chemistry and Chemical Education. In more recent years, he has focussed on simple predictive thermodynamic procedures applied principally to ionic solids. He has more than one hundred publications in the international literature within these fields.
