KUCHING: Four recipients were awarded for excellence in Chemistry by the Malaysian Institute of Chemistry (IKM) at its Chemistry Night on Monday.

“The Chemistry Award is one of IKM Sarawak’s annual activities where children of IKM members are awarded for their academic achievement, specifically, those who had excelled in Chemistry,” said IKM Sarawak chairman Dr Alvin Chai Lian Kuet.

Dr Chai presented the awards to the recipients who included Suzie Kuan Hui Chin (Unimas) who achieved a CGPA of 3.86 and scored an A for her final year project in inorganic chemistry for her Bachelor of Science degree as well as Laura Chai Min Xuan from SMK Sungai Maong who scored 6A+, 2A, 1A- and 1B+ in the SPM results.

Kuan and Chai won RM300 and RM200 respectively.

Dr Chai said IKM was a professional statutory organisation incorporated under the Chemists Act 1975 under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation.

“Under the Act, IKM is entrusted with three main provisions, namely to regulate the practice of chemistry in Malaysia; represent the profession of chemistry in Malayia; and promote public awarenss and appreciation, and the advancement of chemistry in Malaysia,” he explained, adding that there are six IKM branches in the country.
