Welcome to the homepage of the EM Clusters Lab! In here, you will find a short description of who we are and what we are up to. Briefly, we are a group of individuals who want to learn more about the chemical world; the oldest student among us is LWK. We learn by prying (“kay poh” in the Hokkien vernacular), thinking (very “hard work” indeed!) and then more prying. Throughout it all, the key word is fun, and “to boldly go where no one has gone before!

*EM stands for Main Group (E) and Transition Metal (M); where our journey first started so many           years ago!
