    Brief Introduction to the CCS

    Objective and History

    The Chinese Chemical Society (CCS) is an academic organization formed by Chinese Chemists of their own accord and aiming at uniting Chinese Chemists at home and abroad to promote the development of chemistry in China.

    The CCS was founded during a meeting of eminent chemists in Nanjing on August 4,1932. Since then sixteen Boards of Directors had been elected until the eve of Liberation in 1949. The CCS was given a new life on Liberation. In August 1951, the First National Conference of the CCS was held, a new constitution adopted and the 17th Board of Directors elected. In June 1959, the CCS merged with the Chinese Chemical Engineering Society to become the Chinese Chemical and Chemical Engineering Society and the 19th Board of Directors was elected. In 1963, the two societies disintegrated again into two separate organizations. The Society has promoted a wide range of activities to cope with the need of national construction and the development of chemical science. All the activities, however, were suspended in the 10 years' turmoil of "Cultural Revolution". CCS resumed its activities after 1977.

    Organization and Membership

    The leading body of the CCS is the Board of Directors. Its members are elected by the representatives from the Local Sections and Divisions of the Society. The 25h Board of Directors consisting of 159 Board Members with 29 Standing Committee Members included, serves the four years term, namely, January, 1999- December, 2002. Four Presidents have been elected for the four years term, and their respective terms as Executive President are given below:

    Xinqi Song, Tsinghua University, 1999
    Benli HUANG, Xiamen University, 2000
    Fu XI, Institute of Chemistry, CAS, 2001
    Chunli BAI, Chinese Academy of Sciences, 2002

    The Secretary-general and Deputy Secretary-generals nominated and approved by the Board of Directors, are respectively

    Minbo CHEN, Lianyun DUAN, Zhi FANG, Muzhen LIAO, Qunji XUE, Jiannian YAO

    CCS now operates 30 Local Sections in provinces and autonomous regions. Society members are assigned to the relevant Local Sections by their residence. The main activities of Local Sections are to organize meetings or to hold lectures of scientific interest for their members. Sections also help implement most of the Society's academic and educational programs.

    There are 7 Divisions and 14 Commissions which cater for specialized interests of members: physical chemistry, inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, polymer chemistry, analytical chemistry, applied chemistry and chemical education Divisions; nuclear and radio chemistry, catalysis, crystal chemistry, chromatography, computational chemistry, rheology, photochemistry, electrochemistry, thermodynamics and thermoanalyses, quantum chemistry, organic solid chemistry, LB film, organic analytical chemistry and environmental chemistry Commissions. A Division (Commission) may contain within itself one or more units, known as Subdivisions (Subcommissions) in a specified portion of the general field of the Division(Commission).

    CCS has a total of about 50,000 of members and corresponding members abroad taken together, and more than 60 organization members. Membership is open to those satisfying the academic requirements for membership or those with a professional titles equivalent to research associate, lecturer or engineer engaged in a chemical science or a science closely related to chemistry.

    3. Education and Popularization

    From its inception, the CCS has paid constant attention to chemical education and the dissemination of chemical knowledge. The Society plays an important role in standardizing the Chinese chemical terminology. There are many prestigious professors and scholars, who, while actively engaged in teaching and/or research, have done much to help the CCS in promoting and improving chemical education in China. Among other activities are the editing of chemical monograph series, the planning for chemical educational movies, the running of secondary school students' chemistry contests, the arrangement for secondary school students to visit chemical institutions and chemical factories, the conducting of short-term courses, organized lectures and consultative service, etc. From 1984, jointly with China Central TV Station and the China Youth ( a daily newspaper ), CCS has sponsored every other year National Chemistry Contest and "Summer Camping" activities for secondary school students. Since 1987, CCS began to send a team of bright secondary school students to take part in the InternationalChemistry Olympiad and The 27th InternationalChemistry Olympiad has been held in Beijing in 1995.
