For the development of the coordination chemistry of phenolic oximes and their roles in the chemistry and physics of molecular magnets.


About the Winner


Ross Inglis was born in Dunfermline, Scotland in 1985.

In 2003 he began his undergraduate studies in Chemistry at the University of Edinburgh, going on to win the Stevenson Prize in 2007 for his 4th Year undergraduate research project. After completing his Honours degree in 2007 he began his PhD under the supervision of Professor Euan Brechin, working on the coordination chemistry of phenolic oximes and their role in the chemistry and physics of molecular magnets. In 2010 he took up a postdoctoral fellowship in the Brechin group in order to develop the supramolecular and multi-functional chemistry of Mn-based magnetic materials. 

During his time at Edinburgh, Ross has amassed 30 published papers in peer-reviewed journals, and an h-index of 12. His work has included the synthesis of Single-Molecule Magnets with some of the highest recorded energy barriers for magnetisation reversal, the first magneto-structural correlation for SMMs with over 50 examples of [Mn6] and over 30 [Mn3], with the former being the only example of a correlation for any polymetallic species of nuclearity greater than four.
