题目: Recent Advances in Metallopolyynes and Metallophosphors: From Organic Electronics to Nanotechnology and Chemical Biology
地点：909号楼一楼G会议室(Conference Room G, 909-1F)
Inclusion of transition metal elements into organic scaffolds allows the hybridization of the interesting physical characteristics of metal complexes such as electronic, optical and magnetic properties with the solubility and processability inherent to the organic-based molecules. This talk highlights recent progress in the development of some multifunctional metallopolyynes and metallophosphors which can find applications in organic electronics, nanotechnology and chemical biology. Considerable focus is placed on the evaluation of their suitability as semiconductors for organic solar cells and organic field-effect transistors, polymer precursors to metal alloy nanoparticles for magnetic data storage application and molecular probes for cell imaging. The approaches based on structural modification of the organic chromophore to tune the functional properties of these organometallic materials will be presented.

Wai-Yeung Wong received BSc (1992) and PhD (1995) degrees from the University of Hong Kong with the PhD work under the tutelage of Prof. Wing-Tak Wong. After a postdoctoral year with Prof. F. Albert Cotton in Texas A&M University in 1996, he worked for Profs. The Lord Jack Lewis (
He has a distinguished publication record of over 400 scientific articles to date and his current h-index is 53. He becomes the first Chinese scientist to be presented with the Chemistry of the Transition Metals Award by the Royal Society of Chemistry in 2010. He is also the recipient of the First Class Prize in Natural Science Award from Ministry of Education of China in 2010 and the FACS Distinguished Young Chemist Award in 2011, and has won the Distinguished Lectureship Award from The Chemical Society of Japan in 2012. He was also awarded the Ho Leung Ho Lee Foundation Prize for Scientific and Technological Innovation in 2012. Professor Wong is currently the Associate Editor of Journal of Materials Chemistry C and the Regional Editor of Journal of Organometallic Chemistry, and serves on the editorial/international advisory boards of numerous international scientific journals including Dalton Transactions, Dyes and Pigments, Macromolecular Rapid Communications, Macromolecular Chemistry & Physics, Comments on Inorganic Chemistry, Journal of Inorganic & Organometallic Polymers & Materials, and Current Organic Chemistry, etc. At present, he is also the Chairman of the Hong Kong Chemical Society.
