Professor Yam (Vivian W.W. Yam) is Member of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Foreign Associate of the US National Academy of Sciences, Foreign Member of Academia Europaea, Founding Member of The Academy of Sciences of Hong Kong, Fellow of the TWAS in 2006, and currently the Philip Wong Wilson Wong Professor in Chemistry and Energy and Chair Professor at HKU. She has received numerous awards and honors, including Fulbright Distinguished Scholar (2007), Ten Outstanding Young Persons of Hong Kong (2002), Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) Ludwig Mond Award (2015), Korean Advanced Institute of Science & Technology (KAIST) Chemistry Lectureship Award (2017).
Her research interests include inorganic and organometallic chemistry, supramolecular chemistry, photophysics and photochemistry, and metal‐based molecular functional materials for sensing, organic optoelectronics and energy research.
In this presentation, various design and synthetic strategies together with the successful isolation of new classes of chromophoric and luminescent metal complexes and molecules as well as the exploration into the potential applications will be described.
