Dr. Lin Yang was granted by Natural Science Foundation of Guangdong Province of China.
Dr. Junjun Liu and Dr. Lin Yang were granted by Chinese Postdoctoral Science Foundation for their proposals on "Developing Galvanic Replacement Reaction to Generate Alloy Chiral Nanoparticles" and " Fabrication of Multi-Principal Element Alloy Chiral Nanoparticles" repectively.
We collaborated with Prof. Meng GU (Southern University of Science and Technology, Shenzhen) to devise a facile method to fabricate three-element (or ternary) chiral nanoparticles (CNPs) by combining galvanic replacement reactions with a three-step layer-by-layer GLAD. This work was published in the renowned journal Advanced Science (Adv. Sci. 2020, 2001321; https://doi.org/10.1002/advs.202001321).
We, collaborating with Prof. Ken YUNG at HKBU, invents nanostructure that stimulates growth of stem cells for Parkinson's disease treatment. This work was published by Adv. Sci. (https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1002/advs.201901822)
We, collaborating with Prof. C. YANG at Sichuan U. and Prof. Y. G. Wang at SUSTech, used helical metal nanostructures to mediate macroscopic manipulation of molecular chirality. This work was published by Nature Chem. (https://www.nature.com/articles/s41557-020-0453-0)
Dr. Huang and Mr. Jeff Lau were invited to a luncheon hosted by Mrs Carrie Lam, the Chief Executive of HKSAR, on 24 May 2019 (Friday) to celebrate the excellent performance of the teams in the local universities, research and development centres as well as local enterprises at various renowned regional and international competitions on innovation and technology.
PhD: Applicants are expected to have academic background of Chemistry, Physics, or Material Science and Engineering.
Postdoc: two openings, one for surface-enhanced Raman optical activity (SEROA), and another for heterogenous asymmetric (photo)catalysis. Applicants, who work on surface enhanced Raman scattering (SERS), optical activity spectroscopy, fabrication of chiral nanostructures, and/or chiral MOF, are preferential. Applicants can also apply PFS (https://www.ugc.edu.hk/eng/rgc/funding_opport/pdfs/) through HKBU (internal deadline: Sep. 24, 2021)
