Building Bonds in Chemistry @ Kyoto
The inaugural International Collaborative and Cooperative Chemistry Symposium (ICCCS) was initiated and organized by NUS chemistry in 2010. This year, ICCCS-5 shifted to Kyoto. Prof Loh Kian Ping, Prof Lu Yixin, A/P Liu Xiaogang, Assist Prof Ang Wee Han, and Assist Prof Zhao Yu attended the symposium, among 40 professors from 8 universities in the region. Many exciting scientific advances in chemical sciences were presented, and the delegates had thoroughly enjoyed scientific interactions, as well as renewed their friendship during the symposium.
Illuminating test measures fat in milk
Prof. Chang Young-Tae’s group reported the first fluorescent milk fat sensor (Chem Comm, 2014, 50, 10398-10410). It exhibits magnificent, yet selective turn-on feature towards fat molecules in complicated milk matrix, through the disaggregation-induced emission mechanism. Further construction of a handy fluorescence milk fat detector provides a convenient rapid tool to measure fat amount quantitatively. This discovery may greatly help enhance the milk quality control process. This work was highlighted in Chemistry World: http://www.rsc.org/chemistryworld/2014/08/milk-fat-fluorescent-probe
