Biographies

Jim Shannon was Professor of Chemistry at the University of New South Wales 1969-1986 and before that he was a Research Scientist with the CSIRO 1955-1969.

Jim Shannon joined the CSIRO Division of Coal Research in 1955 where he pursued basic research studies in the chemistry of polynuclear compounds as models for elucidating coal structure. Recognising the need for the latest analytical instrumentation, including mass spectrometry and nuclear magnetic resonance, Shannon was instrumental in the installation in 1961 by CSIRO of the first mass spectrometer in Australia devoted to the elucidation of the structures of organic compounds. During the course of his research, he proposed a new ion charge symbolism that became universally accepted in organic mass spectrometry. In 1969 he was appointed to a personal chair at the University of New South Wales. Here he oversaw the installation of two mass spectrometers in the School of Chemistry. Shannon made significant contributions to administration of the University, having two terms as Head of the School, and serving on the University Council and a number of University committees
