Professor Ian Manners
Professor Ian Manners
Professor of Inorganic & Materials Chemistry
BSc, PhD(Bristol), FRS
Area of research
Inorganic, Macromolecular, and Materials Chemistry
Ian’s research interests focus on the development of new synthetic approaches involving catalysis and self-assembly and their applications in molecular chemistry, polymer and materials science, and nanoscience. For more details see the Manners Group website under "Links".
Professor Manners is a supervisor in the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Chemical Synthesis
Ian was born in London, England in 1961 and, after completing his Ph.D., moved first to Germany and then the USA for postdoctoral work. He then joined the Chemistry Department at the University of Toronto in 1990. After 15 enjoyable years in Canada, he moved back to his Alma Mater (University of Bristol, England) in 2006.
