What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Organic chemistry
  • Polymer
  • Catalysis

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Polymer chemistry, Copolymer, Polymer, Nanotechnology and Micelle. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Ring-opening polymerization, Polymerization, Catalysis, Transition metal and Photochemistry. His Copolymer research includes elements of Self-assembly, Nanoscopic scale, Redox and Chemical engineering.

His Polymer study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Supramolecular chemistry, Covalent bond, Oligomer, Ferrocene and Metal. His study on Nanoparticle, Nanostructure, Nanomaterials and Thin film is often connected to Macromolecule as part of broader study in Nanotechnology. His work focuses on many connections between Micelle and other disciplines, such as Dispersity, that overlap with his field of interest in Conjugated system.

His most cited work include:

  • Ammonia-borane and related compounds as dihydrogen sources. (869 citations)
  • B–N compounds for chemical hydrogen storage (813 citations)
  • Cylindrical Block Copolymer Micelles and Co-Micelles of Controlled Length and Architecture (729 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His main research concerns Polymer chemistry, Copolymer, Polymer, Polymerization and Self-assembly. His Polymer chemistry study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Ring-opening polymerization, Monomer, Catalysis, Transition metal and Photochemistry. As part of one scientific family, Ian Manners deals mainly with the area of Catalysis, narrowing it down to issues related to the Adduct, and often Borane and Medicinal chemistry.

Ian Manners interconnects Nanotechnology, Solvent, Micelle and Chemical engineering, Dispersity in the investigation of issues within Copolymer. Ian Manners integrates Polymer and Macromolecule in his studies. His research in Polymerization intersects with topics in Crystallography, Cationic polymerization and Silicon.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Polymer chemistry (43.74%)
  • Copolymer (34.50%)
  • Polymer (26.94%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Copolymer (34.50%)
  • Micelle (18.04%)
  • Chemical engineering (17.36%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Copolymer, Micelle, Chemical engineering, Self-assembly and Polymer are his primary areas of study. His studies deal with areas such as Nanowire, Polymerization, Branching, Nanofiber and Dispersity as well as Copolymer. The study incorporates disciplines such as Amorphous solid and Corona in addition to Chemical engineering.

His Self-assembly study is concerned with the larger field of Nanotechnology. His Polymer research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Photocatalysis, Polymer chemistry and Seeding. In his research, Boranes, Silanes and Ferrocene is intimately related to Catalysis, which falls under the overarching field of Polymer chemistry.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Uniform patchy and hollow rectangular platelet micelles from crystallizable polymer blends. (152 citations)
  • Polyferrocenylsilanes: synthesis, properties, and applications (143 citations)
  • 50th Anniversary Perspective: Functional Nanoparticles from the Solution Self-Assembly of Block Copolymers (120 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Organic chemistry
