Over the past more than 60 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 1036 staffs in DICP including 155 professors and 14 academicians by the end of 2013.
Education has always been paid more attention in DICP, which has had graduated programs since 1955. At present, it is accredited to award PhD and M.S degrees in physical chemistry, organic chemistry, analytical chemistry, chemical engineering, environmental science and engineering, biochemical engineering and industrial catalysis. The institute has 112 PhD supervisors, and also 575 PhD students, 280 master graduate students and 115 post-doctoral fellows. 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.
