about img


Welcome to the F. Y. KWONG Research Group! Research in the KWONG Laboratory is focused on the advanced development of tailor-made catalysts and its application in cross-coupling reactions for organic synthesis. Prof. Kwong has expanded the methodologies for phosphine ligand design, and in the process built a library of such catalysts, thus providing a resource which can be used by the wider academic community and industry.
