Below is the background of the platform building in the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering. In order to serve better the scientific work as well as the local communities, even faced with the difficulties such as shortages in houses, funds, several labs have been newly or rebuilt by funding from the central and provincial government. Those labs are Provincial Phosphorus Chemical Arts Lab, Large-scale Equipment Lab, Inorganic Synthesis Lab, Organic Synthesis Lab, Material Synthesis Lab, and Calculation Chemistry Lab, which provide scientific research platforms for phosphorus chemistry, plant resources development, and new material studies. All these together provide scientific studying facilities for the staff in this department.
