Top Chinese scientist receives prestigious British chemistry society's highest honor

Abstract:
One of China's top chemists, Bai Chunli, becomes the first Chinese scientist honored by the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) of the United Kingdom for his innovative research on chemistry.

Richard Pike, RSC chief executive officer, granted the certificates of the honorary fellow of the RSC to Bai in Beijing, the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) website reported on Friday.

Bai is among the 87 global academic celebrities, including a handful of Nobel laureates in chemistry, to earn the extraordinary honor. The RSC constitution stipulates the total number of honorary fellows should be no more than 120 and they must undergo a rigorous nomination and election process.

The 54-year-old chemist, deputy CAS president and president of the Chinese Chemical Society, is leading the most cutting-edge research on molecular nanostructure and nanotechnology in China, which earned him election in April 2006 as the elite foreign associate of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences (NAS).
