Research Divisions

Research Division for Chemistry




The Research Division for Chemistry was ranked No. 1 among all chemistry departments in Hong Kong in the Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) in 2014.

The achievements of our staff have been recognized by numerous international awards.  Two faculty members in our Division are Members of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and Foreign Associates of The National Academy of Sciences, USA.

Our younger professors are also rising stars: one was recently awarded the Rao Makineni Lectureship by the American Peptide Society.



Research in the Division encompasses an array of areas and are focused in the following four research foci:  Synthetic chemistry, Physical chemistry and computation, Chemical biology, and Material science and energy. 

We are also committed to promote knowledge exchange through research excellence, and to provide professional services to the community.  I invite you to explore our website and visit our Division to know more about our research work and achievements.
