Research Projects & Achievements
In recent years, our scientific researches were mainly supported by more than 20 research projects including 973 and 863 projects from MOST, projects from NSFC etc. We have published more than 200 peer-reviewed papers in domestic and international journals. The three research achievements were awarded National Second-Class Technical Invention, First-Class Natural Science of Liaoning province, and First-Class Technical Invention of Liaoning province. 11 invention patents in China were achieved.
The Center offers courses of Organic Chemistry, Polymer Chemistry, Polymer Physics, Chemical Principle, Functional Polymer, Polymer Testing Technology, and Liquid Crystalline Polymer for undergraduate and graduate students. Each year about 4 doctoral and 23 master students graduate.
The Center for Molecular science and engineering has active academic cooperation and scientific exchange with domestic and international scholars. These scientific activities help to broaden the knowledge of our students.
