I have always enjoyed the thrill of learning something new. It is this pursuit that propels me to move from one chapter to another: from undergraduate physics to PhD in inorganic and computational chemistry, and an R&D chemist in analytical chemistry. I am now driven by my curiosity to start my new chapter in science communication, and I am eager to share the wonders of the world with you!

Stay young with Zinc!

We might have heard that antioxidants are good for our health. They help us to fight against oxidizing agents in our body and help us to stay young!
Recently, researchers have made a new breakthrough to help us fight against the oxides even with the inactive zinc!

Charges that challenge scientists!

Rub a ruler with a wool and hold it towards paper bits, then you’d find the ruler attracts papers. This may sound a common sense to you – the two surfaces have opposite charges.
But now, researchers find that not all materials behave the same and the reason is still a mystery.
Let’s take a look at the charges that challenges scientists!

Drawing a map with chemicals!

Buildings and natural preserves create geographical maps. And now, molecules could build a molecular map! By investigating the presence of molecules in the environment, researchers have built some 3D molecular maps, which are the story tellers of our interactions with our living places!

The Era Beyond Fluorescence and Phosphorescence – Thermally Activated Delayed Fluorescence

Advances in knowledge about light emission have brought breathtaking innovations in lighting and display technologies. The well-known light-emitting processes are fluorescence and phosphorescence. Let’s take a closer look into their dynamics and another light-emitting process: Thermally Activated Delayed Fluorescence (TADF)!
