University of Madrid, Dept. of Chemistry, Molecular Structure and Chemical Reactivity

Manuel Yáñez, born in Lugo, Spain, got his bachelor in Chemistry at the Universidad de Santiago de Compostela in 1970 and his PhD at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid in 1973. He did a postdoc with John Pople from 1974 to 1976 at Carnegie-Mellon University, USA. In 1979 he moved back to Spain where he took up a tenure position as an Associate Professor and, in 1983, as a Full Professor of Physical Chemistry at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. He has received several research awards, among them, the Award of the UAM Foundation in 1993, the Research award in Physical Chemistry of the Royal Spanish Society of Chemistry in 2001, and the Bettancourt-Perronet Award from the Ministry of Education and Research of France in 2003.

His current research interests lie in the field of gas-phase chemistry in general and gas-phase ion chemistry in particular. Major topics of interest are the theoretical studies of reactivity of alkaline metal cations, transition metal monocations and alkaline-earth or transition metal dications, and the theoretical study of inter- and intra-molecular hydrogen bonds. He is the author of more than 370 papers and several book chapters.
