About the Winner


Eric McInnes is a Professor of Inorganic Chemistry at The University of Manchester. He is an expert in Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (EPR) spectroscopy (also known as Electron Spin Resonance, ESR) methods, and their application to the characterisation of inorganic materials. These, and complementary techniques including magnetometry, have been applied widely to problems in p, d and f-block chemistry. He was awarded his BSc (1992) and PhD (1995) at the University of Edinburgh, the latter under the supervision of L.J. Yellowlees. After post-doctoral spells in Manchester and East Anglia, he was appointed to a lectureship at Manchester in 2000 where he was promoted to a Chair in 2007. He is currently co-Director of the EPSRC-funded National EPR Facility for EPR at Manchester, is part of the Manchester Molecular Magnetism group, and was Chair of the RSC EPR Group from 2016-2019. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh (FRSE) in 2019, of the Royal Society of Chemistry (FRSC) in 2009, and was awarded the International EPR Society (IES) medal for Chemistry in 2015.
