Most recently, he worked at Advanced Technology Research, in Columbia, Md., and Hydrocarbon Publishing, in Frazer, Pa. Fleisch­mann was the author or coauthor of more than 50 publications and patents. He was a member of the First Presbyterian Church of Ambler, Pa., for more than 35 years.

An emeritus member of ACS, Fleisch­mann joined in 1957. He was also a member of the Electrochemical Society, ASTM International, and Sigma Xi.

He is survived by his wife of 51 years, Claudette; three sons, Charles, Craig, and Christan; and six grandchildren.
