Sir John Tomlinson Brunner, 1st Baronet, DL (8 February 1842 - 1 July 1919) was a British chemical industrialist and Liberal Party politician. At Hutchinsons alkali works in Widnes he rose to the position of general manager. There he met Ludwig Mond, whom he later formed a partnership with to create the chemical company Brunner Mond Co., initially making alkali by the Solvay process.

As a Member of Parliament he represented Northwich, Cheshire in 1885-1886 and then from 1887-1910. He was a paternalistic employer and as a politician supported Irish Home Rule, trade unions, free trade, welfare reforms and, leading up to the First World War, a more sympathetic stance towards Germany. Brunner was a prominent Freemason, and a generous benefactor to the towns in his constituency and to the University of Liverpool.

He is the great grandfather of HRH The Duchess of Kent.
