化学系

浙江大学化学系历史悠久,源远流长。它的前身可追溯到创办于1897年的求是书院和育英书院。几经演变,求是书院1912年发展为浙江高等学校,并于1915年创建化学系,1928年发展为浙江大学化学系;育英书院1897年创建化学科,1914年育英书院发展为之江大学,化学科于1920年发展为化学系;1952年全国高等学校院系调整,浙江大学化学系与之江大学化学系合并组建浙江师范学院化学系,1958年发展成为杭州大学化学系;1958年浙江大学恢复化学系。1998年四校合并后,由浙江大学化学系与杭州大学化学系、浙江医科大学和浙江农业大学基础部化学教研室合并组建成新的浙江大学化学系。

化学系具有辉煌的历史,曾培养和造就了一大批杰出学者。许多著名化学家如纪育沣、王葆仁、吴征铠、王序、卢嘉锡、汪猷、钱志道、徐光宪、钱人元、吴浩青、冯新德、杨福愉、沈家骢、陆熙炎、戴立信、谢学锦、林励吾、沈之荃、杨裕生、陈耀祖、曹楚南、方肇伦、黄宪、麻生明、徐如人,张锁江、丁尼、朱利中和谢作伟等29位中国科学院,中国工程院院士和美国医学和生物工程院院士先后在我系学习或任教。

经过百余年发展,化学系已发展成为综合实力雄厚、在国内和国际具有重要影响的化学人才培养和学术研究机构。拥有化学一级学科国家重点学科,化学一级学科博士点和博士后流动站。化学系还被教育部批准为"国家理科基础科学研究和教学人才培养基地"、"国家工科基础课程教学基地"和"化学国家级实验教学示范中心"。

化学系现有教职工213人(含学科博士后53人),其中教授和研究员61人,包括中科院院士2人,万人计划入选者3人,国家百千万人才工程入选者1人, 国家杰出青年基金获得者9人,教育部长江计划特聘教授3人,国家优秀青年基金获得者8人,国家青年拔尖人才2人。在读本科生380人,硕士研究生254人,博士研究生301人,留学生7人。

Overview of Department of Chemistry

The Department of Chemistry, Zhejiang University has a long history. Its origin could be traced back to Qiushi Academy and Yuying Academy, which were founded in 1897. Qiushi Academy undertook several changes and became Zhejiang Institution of Higher Learning in 1912. It established chemistry department in 1915 that morphed into the Department of Chemistry, Zhejiang University in 1928. The chemistry discipline in Yuying Academy was founded in 1897 and became an independent department in 1920 after Yuying Academy's turning into Zhijiang University in 1914. In 1952, universities in China underwent a nationwide reshuffling, due to which the two chemistry departments from Zhejiang University and Zhijiang University merged with each other to form the Department of Chemistry, Zhejiang Normal College. It later on developed into Department of Chemistry, Hangzhou University in 1958; and in the same year Zhejiang University re-established its own department of chemistry. In 1998 the department of chemistry in Zhejiang University and Hangzhou University, the chemistry teaching and research section of fundamental department in Zhejiang Agricultural University and Zhejiang Medical University amalgamated into the new Department of Chemistry, Zhejiang University.

The Department of Chemistry has a famous reputation of scholastic excellence. We are affiliated to a number of famous chemists who are Academicians of either the Chinese Academy of Sciences or the Chinese Academy of Engineering, that have studied or taught in the Department of Chemistry.

Through years of development, the Department of Chemistry has progressed into an influential chemistry education and research institution with comprehensive discipline strength. The department has the primary National Key Discipline of Chemistry and postdoctoral research station in the discipline of chemistry. It owns the "National Base for Training of Research and Teaching Talents in Basic Science", the "National Teaching Base for Basic Courses of Engineering", and the first experimental teaching demonstration center of national level.

At present, the Department of Chemistry has 206 faculty staff members, including 63 professors (2 academicians of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, 3 distinguished professors of Chang Jiang Scholar Program, 9 awardees of the National Natural Science Foundation for Distinguished Young Scholars), 60 associate professors and 39 postdoctoral scholars. There are 301 Ph. D. candidates, 254 graduates and 380 undergraduate students (excluding freshmen), 7 international students.
