HKBU Chemistry PhD student receives best academic poster award

浸大化學博士生獲得最佳學術海報獎

PhD student Kwan Chak-shing of the Department of Chemistry of Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU) received the best poster award for his academic poster entitled “Higher-Generation Type III-B Rotaxane Dendrimers with Controlling Particle Size in Three-Dimensional Molecular Switching” at the ACS Publication Forum on Nano-, Meso-, and Micro-structured Materials for Energy, Electronics and Biotechnology.

The forum which was held at SUSTech Shenzhen in April, attracted around 300 participants from more than 70 universities around the world, as well as 14 journals’ Editor-in-Chief from the American Chemical Society Publications, to present their work.

Under the supervision of Dr Ken Leung Cham-fai, Associate Professor of the Department of Chemistry, Chak-shing’s research mainly focuses on the design and synthesis of novel mechanically interlocked molecules, macromolecular machines, organocatalysts, and molecular sensors. In the poster, the synthesis and characterisation of new macromolecular machines and their potential application as an actively controlled anti-cancer drug delivery system were presented. He successfully made a major breakthrough on effective synthesis of novel higher-generation macromolecular machines.

香港浸會大學化學系博士生關擇誠同學憑學術海報「Higher-Generation Type III-B Rotaxane Dendrimers with Controlling Particle Size in Three-Dimensional Molecular Switching」,在美國化學學會有關納米、介觀及微米結構的能源、電子與生物科技材料論壇上,奪得最佳海報獎。

論壇上月中於深圳舉行,約300名來自超過70間海內外大學的學者參加,當中包括14位美國化學學會旗下雜誌的主編發表演講報吿。

在化學系副教授梁湛輝博士的指導下,擇誠致力研究新型的機械內鎖分子、大分子機器、有機催化劑和分子傳感器。在得獎海報中,擇誠展示了新型大分子機器的合成與表徵,以及在主動控制抗癌藥物輸送的應用。他在新型進階大分子機器的有效合成方面取得重大突破。
