Environment Friendly Chemistry and Application Laboratory Approved as Province-Ministry Joint Key La
Ministry of Education recently issued an Announcement of Approved Constructions of 2007 Province-Ministry Joint Key Laboratories of Ministry of Education (JJHNo.46), Environment Friendly Chemistry and Application Laboratory of our university is approved as Province-Ministry Joint Key Laboratory of Ministry of Education.
To carry out the National Middle-Long Term Science and Technology Development Plan Outline and Middle-Long Term Technology Development Plan of Colleges and Universities, accelerate the construction of national innovation system (university), truly strengthen the technology work of local universities, promote the science and technology innovation new platform construction of local universities for better service of regional (local) economic construction and social development, Ministry of Education takes the promotion and regulation of constructing Province-Ministry Joint Key Laboratories of Ministry of Education of universities as an important part of the national innovation system construction. In the 2007 application process of Province-Ministry Joint Key Laboratory of Ministry of Education, which was organized by Ministry of Education, there are 47 laboratories are approved in the country and only 2 key laboratories are approved in Hunan Province.
Environment Friendly Chemistry and Application Province-Ministry Joint Key Laboratory of Ministry of Education is established based on the platform of Chemistry Postdoctoral Scientific Research Mobile Station, Doctoral Programs of Organic Chemistry and Polymer Chemistry, Chemistry Engineering, Material Physics and Chemistry, Material Studies and 11 Master Programs of Polymer Chemistry and Physics. The major research of the laboratory includes pollution free pesticides, environment friendly chemistry reaction, environment friendly electrochemistry, high-efficiency energy-saving photoelectric materials and equipments, etc. The laboratory has a young and innovative academic staff with the Director of Professor Luo He’an. Among the academic elites there are 15 doctoral supervisors, 24 professors, 29 doctors including Technology Leading Talents of Hunan Province, winner of Cross Century Talents Fund of Ministry of Education, Excellent Young and Middle-aged Experts of Hunan Province, etc. In recent 5 years, the laboratory has successively undertaken 80-odd vertical or horizontal research projects as key projects of National 863 Project, National Natural Science Fund, etc. (including 24 national projects). The total amount of the projects is nearly 40 million Yuan. There are 14 published monographs, textbooks and 700-odd theses, which 300-odd these can be indexed by SCI and EI. There are 29 invention patents, 66 horizontal technology transfers with the contract amount of 29 million Yuan. At the time of strengthening scientific research, the laboratory has positively devoted to the local economic construction and relative technologies have been applied in Baling Company of SINOPEC, Yuyang Petroleum Chemical Factory of Baling Company, Yingshan Petroleum Chemical Factory of Baling Company, Shijiazhuang Chemical Fiber Company of SINOPEC, etc. and made great contributions to save energy and reduce pollutants discharge of these units.
Our university now has two Key Laboratories of Ministry of Education. Thereinto: Low-dimension Material and Its Application Technology Laboratory was approved to construct in 2003 and it successfully passed the acceptance check in 2006. The construction approval of Environment Friendly Chemistry and Application Province-Ministry Joint Key Laboratory of Ministry of Education is a great driving force to further strengthen the Chemistry Discipline construction of our university, promote the intercrossing of disciplines, optimize the distribution of technology resources and serve economic construction and social development better. According to the regulations of Ministry of Education, the construction period of Province-Ministry Joint Key Laboratory is within one to two years. Ministry of Education and relative departments will send experts to check the laboratory when the construction period is expired.
