The Department of Chemistry at Nankai University was initiated in 1921 by Professor Zongyue Qiu, just 2 years after the founding of Nankai University. Over the years the department has evolved, most recently in the founding of the College of Chemistry in 1995, which then became an entity in 2000. The College of Chemistry of Nankai University has become a leading national base for research and education in chemistry. Chemical Science and the Royal Society of Chemistry are delighted to help celebrate the 100th anniversary of chemical sciences in Nankai University with a themed collection.
This themed collection features articles published in Chemical Science by authors at Nankai University, and speakers at our joint symposium “Celebrating the 100th Anniversary of Chemistry at Nankai University with New Frontiers in Chemistry: A Chemical Science Symposium”. The symposium is dedicated to the latest research that crosses new frontiers and boundaries within the chemical sciences and introduces new concepts, and will feature 8 leading researchers in multidisciplinary fields as the invited speakers, alongside 16 flash talks from outstanding young researchers, chaired by Chemical Science Associate Editors Professor Jinlong Gong and Professor Ning Jiao.
We hope you enjoy reading this collection and look forward to seeing you at the symposium on the 29th September.
