Boris Zuckerblat was born in Ukraine in 1939 . He graduated from the Faculty of Physics and Mathematics of Chisinau State University (1961) and graduate school under the direction of Professor Yu. E. Perlin (1964), worked in the Laboratory of Inorganic Chemistry of the Academy of Sciences of the MSSR (Head Academician A.V. Ablov ). He defended his thesis in 1967 at Kazan State University , and his doctoral thesis in 1975 at the University of Tartu . He was a professor at the Physics and Mathematics Faculty of the State University of Moldova and at the same time led a research group for molecular magnetism at the Institute of Chemistry of the Academy of Sciences of Moldova . Since 2002 - Professor, Department of Chemistry, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev ( Be'er Sheva ).
In the mid-1960s, Yu. E. Perlin and B. S. Zuckerblat formulated and solved the problem of multi-phonon transitions in impurity centers with impurities of small radius. His main scientific interests are in the field of the Jahn-Teller effect and vibronic interactions in molecules and crystals, nonradiative transitions, magnetic interactions in metal clusters, group theory and irreducible tensor operators. The article "High-Nuclearity Magnetic Clusters: Generalized Spin Hamiltonian and Its Use for the Calculation of the Energy Levels, Bulk Magnetic Properties, and Inelastic Neutron Scattering Spectra", published in Inorganic Chemistry, was included in the list of most cited scientific articles (1% most cited scientific papers) according to Thomson Scientific (ISI) Essential Science Indicators.  B. Zuckerblat, in collaboration with research groups from the University of Bielefeld (Germany) and the Neel Laboratory (France), discovered and explained long-lived quantum oscillations (Rabi oscillations) in a V15 molecular magnet.
