Prof. Bao Xinhe was appointed as the Honored Professor of ECUST, June 17, 2015

    June 17th, Prof. Bao Xinhe, Academician of Chinese Academy of Science, was appointed as the Honored Professor of ECUST. The ceremony was presided by Prof. Tian He (Academician of CAS, Dean of School of Chemistry and Molecular Engineering), and Prof. Ma Yulu (Vice-President of ECUST), Prof. Tang Yanhui (Secretary of School of Chemistry and Molecular Engineering) also attended the ceremony. After the introduction of Prof. Bao Xinhe by Prof. Tian He, Prof. Ma Yulu awarded Prof. Bao Xinhe with the appointment letter of “Honored Professor of East China University of Science and Technology” as well as the University Badge.

    In the ceremony, Prof. Ma welcomed and acknowledged the joining of Prof. Bao Xinhe on behalf of ECUST. She stated that, the joining of Prof. Bao will further strengthen the cooperation between ECUST and Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics, help promote the scientific research development as well as the disciplinary construction of chemistry of our university. Prof. Bao was delighted with the significant progress of our university in recent years and indicated that he will fully support the development of chemistry and other disciplines of ECUST in the future.

    After the ceremony, Prof. Bao attended the 149th "Famous Teacher Forum" and delivered a seminar report titled “The scientific basis of catalysis for future energy systems”. As the key and core of chemical process, catalysis has long played a significant role in the aspects of the national economy, such as oil refining, synthetic fertilizers, synthetic fiber and vehicle exhaust gas processing. In recent years, the strong demand of resource optimization and social sustainable development has made the chemical industry closely related to energy, environment, agriculture and human health. The technology of clean coal, efficient use of coal and natural gas for chemicals and carbon dioxide, and efficient use of solar energy and hydrogen fuel cell technology have created a major innovation in science and technology of catalysis. In the future, more emphasis will be put on the selection and regulation of the catalytic process and catalyst, the pursuit of high conversion rate and the selectivity of the target product 100% under mild conditions. The lecture focused on the design and synthesis of nanomaterials catalyst which broke the traditional concept, construction and development of high efficiency catalyst, and the important progress in the field of energy efficient application in recent years. The principle of catalytic science was also briefly introduced during the lecture. Prof. Bao pointed out the concept of "nano limited domain catalysis" in his research group in recent years, combined with clean and efficient conversion of coal and natural gas-related catalytic processes. He also described the opportunities and challenges of the achieved precise regulation in the nanoscale catalytic processes in future.

    After the lecture, Prof. Bao visited the Key Laboratory for Advanced Materials. Prof. Tian made a detailed introduction of the construction, development of the Key Lab and the proposal of application for State Key Laboratory and Shanghai Peak Discipline.
