Hermann Irving Schlesinger (October 11, 1882 - October 3, 1960) was an American inorganic chemist, working in boron chemistry.

He and Herbert C. Brown discovered sodium borohydride in 1940 and both were involved in further development of borohydride chemistry.

Schlesinger studied chemistry at the University of Chicago from 1900 till 1905, when he received his Ph.D. for work with Julius Stieglitz. In the following two years he worked with Walther Nernst at the University of Berlin, with Johannes Thiele at the University of Strasbourg and with John Jacob Abel at the Johns Hopkins University.

From 1907 to 1960 he taught at the University of Chicago.
