Senior students from the Department of Chemistry of Hankuk University of Foreign studies (HUFS) published academic papers on a Science Citation Index (SCI)-recognized journal.
Yoo, M. and Kim, D. published their studies in the reputable science journal "Sensors and Actuators B: Chemical" as lead authors.
Their academic achievement, under assistance from Professor Kim, H.-J. and graduate students, centers on a fluorescent substance that can selectively detect toxic cyanide ion, which made finding hazardous substances easier.
