• Faculty and research programme
    The Department emphasizes teaching and research in all areas of chemical science, encompassing Analytical, Inorganic, Organic and Physical Chemistry. In recent years, the research focus of the Department has been placed in the following two areas, which constitute our current strategic research directions:

    • Analytical Science
    • Materials Chemistry

  • Research Grants Awarded and Recent Successful Bids of the RGC Grants
    Over the past ten years, through the Hong Kong Research Grants Council (RGC) open-bid grants programme, a total of 55 projects were awarded funding, with a total in excess of HK$34.842 million.  In addition, many shorter-term (mostly, one-year) projects were supported by the HKBU Faculty Research Grants (FRG) programme. 

  • Research Outputs and Patents
    A total of 923 papers were published in international refereed journals in the past six years.  Many of them were published in various journals with high impact factors (IF), such as Acc. Chem. Res., Adv. Funct. Mater., Adv. Mater., Anal. Chem., Angew. Chem. Int. Ed., Biosensors & Bioelectronics, Chem. Comm., Chem. Eur. J., Coord. Chem. Rev., Energy Environ. Sci., J. Am. Chem. Soc., J. Phys. Chem. C, Macromolecules, Nucleic Acids Research, etc.
