OCT . 30 2019
Peking University, Oct. 29, 2019: From October 15 to 19, the 2019 National Polymer Academic Papers Conference (NPAPC) was held in Xi’an. Professor Zhan Xiao Wei from the College of Engineering Peking University won the 2019 China Chemical Society Polymer Science Invitation Report Honor Award and was invited to make a report at the conference. The awarded project Fused-ring Electron Acceptor Photovoltaic Materials was published in Acta Polymerica Sinica. The NPAPC began in 1954 and has become the most important academic conference in the domestic polymer science community. This year, nearly 5,000 people, including 13 members of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Chinese Academy of Engineering participated in this national event.

Qian Renyuan, the former chair of the Chinese Chemical Society (CCS), established the CCS Polymer Science Innovation Award, which includes the CCS Polymer Science Invitation Report Honor Award and the Chinese Chemical Society Polymer Science Innovation Paper Award. To date, 12 scholars including Zhang Xi and Wu Qi have received this award.
