He holds patents for biological applications, glass microspheres, sealing glasses, transparent composites and high-temperature ceramics.

The 2009 Toledo Glass & Ceramic Award will be presented to Delbert E. Day, Ph.D., April 23, 2009, at The Toledo Club in Toledo, Ohio, by the Michigan/NW Ohio Section of the American Ceramic Society. Day is the recently retired Curators’ Professor Emeritus of Materials Science and Engineering in the Department of Materials Science & Engineering, as well as the former director of the Graduate Center for Materials Research, at the Missouri University of Science and Technology. In addition, he is the former chairman and chief executive officer of MO-SCI Corp., which he co-founded.

Day holds patents on glasses for biological applications, glass microspheres, sealing glasses, dental materials, transparent composites and high-temperature ceramics. He will give a talk titled “Glass–From Outer Space to Inner Space” at the award presentation meeting. Day is receiving the award in recognition of outstanding service and leadership in education and industrial applications of glass, including his work on glass microspheres for radiation therapy; Glasphalt paving material; and special purpose glasses for the healthcare, electronics, transportation, aerospace, chemical and sporting goods industries.

The Toledo Glass & Ceramic Award was started in 1956 and was given annually until 1986, when glass companies in the area downsized their engineering staffs and the NW Ohio Section stopped meeting. The Section later merged with the Michigan Section, and the combined organization began presenting the award again in 2005.
