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!

This is one of those papers that took the efforts of a number of students. It is the first paper on our hypothesis that organometallic compounds should exhibit differential reaction behaviour with Se-S vs S-S bonds; an idea that may lead to selective targetting of the enzyme TrxR. The paper is dedicated to the memory of Prof Arne Holmgren. Check out the paper (publication# 207).
