Celebrate DICP’s 70th Birthday with Research Highlights from ACS Catalysis

This year the Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics (DICP), Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) is celebrating the 70th anniversary of its founding in 1949. DICP is highly recognized around the world for its leadership in fields like chemical engineering, organic chemistry, chromatography, molecular reaction dynamics – and of course, catalytic chemistry. That’s why the editors of ACS Catalysis are pleased to help celebrate the continued contributions of this prestigious institute.

The research at DICP has closely reflected the scientific and economic demands of China and stands at the forefront of fundamental and applied science. The institute has established an excellent track record of academic and industrial accomplishments in catalytic chemistry, chemical engineering, chemical lasers, molecular reaction dynamics, organic chemistry, modern analytical chemistry, and biotechnology. These achievements have substantially contributed to Chinese economic and technological development, as well as the world.

DICP is home to more than 1000 scientists, engineers, and technicians, 180 postdoctoral scholars, and nearly 960 graduate students. Through the continuous efforts of several generations, DICP has earned a strong reputation as a comprehensive research institution covering all facets of chemical research from laboratory discovery and fundamental investigations to technology transfer that paves the way to industrial applications.  In the last five years, DICP’s efforts have resulted in more than 4900 papers indexed in SCI, 500 overseas patents, 5000 Chinese patents, and more than 50 industrialized processes. In the applied sciences in particular, technology from DICP contributes more than $145 billion per year in industrial outputs. DICP aims to continue developing into one of the world’s leading research institutions in the chemical sciences.

Since the journal’s launch in 2011, the two have been partners in connecting the world to cutting-edge catalysis research, with DICP researchers contributing dozens of notable articles to the journal. “Chinese researchers play a critical role in the global catalysis community, contributing significant innovations every year.  DICP stands out as continuously making noteworthy discoveries and practical advances across a range of catalytic subdisciplines – including homogeneous catalysis and heterogeneous catalysis.  DICP researchers have played a central role in the development of ACS Catalysis through contributions as authors, referees, and editorial board members,” said ACS Catalysis Editor-in-Chief Professor Christopher Jones.

In the future, DICP says its focus will be on research related to sustainable energy, environmental optimization, biotechnology, as well as advanced materials. These areas dovetail nicely with ACS Catalysis’ focus, setting the stage for a long and prosperous relationship.
