The co-authored papers of three Science undergraduate students’ final year projects were recently published in renowned international journals Lab on a Chip and RSC Advances by Royal Society of Chemistry and Biomicrofluidics of the US.
Under the supervision of staff of the Department of Chemistry, students Tse Ho-yin (Chemistry), Chan Sing-ming (Chemistry) and Liu Zhengzhi (Analytical and Testing Sciences) engaged in frontier research projects in the areas of chemistry and analytical and testing sciences. Through lectures and laboratory courses, they acquired chemical knowledge and techniques as well as the skill of integrating them to solve specific research problems, which they demonstrated through their projects.
Their publications are:
