Professor Eric John Logan McInnes FRSE

Professor of Inorganic Chemistry, University of Manchester.

Professor Eric McInness is 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) – and related methods, and their application to the characterisation of inorganic materials. These methods have been applied widely to problems in p-, d- and f-block chemistry. This work was recognised by the Chemistry Medal of International EPR Society in 2015. He is currently Chair of the Royal Society of Chemistry ESR Group and co-Director of the EPSRC UK National EPR Facility.
