As an internationally renowned scholar, he has snatched multiple prestigious awards including the Croucher Senior Research Fellow Award (2009), Chemistry of the Transition Metals Award by the Royal Society of Chemistry (2010), First Class Prize in Natural Science Award from the Ministry of Education of the People’s Republic of China (2010), FACS Distinguished Young Chemist Award (2011), Ho Leung Ho Lee Foundation Prize for Scientific and Technological Innovation (2012), Second Class Prize in State Natural Science Award of the People’s Republic of China (2013), and the inaugural Research Grant Council (RGC) Senior Research Fellow Award (2020). Since 2018, Professor Wong was conferred the Clarea Au Endowed Professorship in Energy in recognition of his devotion to the development of advanced materials for enhanced energy uses.

WONG Wai-yeung Raymond_text_picProfessor Wong's research concentrates on designing and synthesizing molecular functional materials and metallopolymers (1D and 2D) with photofunctional properties and energy applications. His team is committed to developing sustainable energy sources and enhancing energy conversion technologies to address future global energy needs while promoting a cleaner, more resilient future.

Apart from his dedication to advanced research, Professor Wong is committed to fostering an environment that nurtures scientific rigour. He has been leading the set-up of the first Fourier-transform Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (FT-EPR) spectrometer facility in Hong Kong (funded by the 2021/22 Collaborative Research Fund of RGC). The new facility marks Professor Wong’s dedication to improving research quality and steering the University community toward continued improvement.
