The Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics (DICP) is located in the port city of Dalian, China. In the past half century, research at DICP has closely reflected the economic and scientific needs of China. The Institute has built up an impressive portfolio of achievements, principally in the fields of catalysis, chemical engineering, chemical lasers, chemical dynamics, organic synthesis, and chromatography for modern analytic chemistry and biotechnology. These achievements have greatly contributed to the China's economic and technological development.
Research at DICP is now focused on energy-related topics, and the Institute's current development strategy is summarized as follows: "DICP focuses on sustainable energy research and coordinates the development of environment optimization, biotechnology and advanced material in a multidisciplinary atmosphere by strengthening technological integration and innovation. DICP aims to play an indispensable roles in the national economy and security, and become a leading research institute in the world."
Over the past more than 70 years, DICP has not only produced a certain number of high learned senior scientists, renowned and influential in both China and overseas, but also turned out many middle-aged and young scientists with accomplishments, promising in their own fields and emerging as the leaders and backbones in different disciplines. There are around 2,000 staffs in DICP including 276 professors and 14 academicians by the October of 2022.
Education has always been paid more attention in DICP, which has had graduate programs since 1955. At present, it is accredited to award PhD and M.S degrees in atomic and molecular physics, optics, physical chemistry, organic chemistry, analytical chemistry, materials physics and chemistry, chemical engineering, environmental science and engineering, biochemical engineering and industrial catalysis.
The institute has 188 PhD supervisors, and also 695 PhD of Chinese students, 394 master of Chinese students and 75 international students. There have been chemistry and chemical engineering post-doctor stations since the post-doctor station was set up in 1986. A 18-storey building, the Education Center for Graduate Study, has been opened to provide modern and advanced teaching facilities as well as comfortable accommodation and apartments for graduate students. This will ameliorate the educational facilities of the institute.
