Brief Introduction

The Nuclear Chemistry Group at the Institute of Modern Physics was established in 2006. There are 16 researchers at present, which formed a nuclear chemical multidisciplinary team full of vigor and vitality. The group pay much attention to the personnel training and academic exchanges.  

Aiming at international frontiers of nuclear science and technology research  and satisfying the development needs of the country and IMP, the Nuclear Chemistry group conducts leading-edge basic and applied research on key nuclear chemistry issues such as nuclear fuel reprocessing, medical isotopes production and purification, chemical properties of superheavy elements based on the heavy ion accelerator. Committed to improve Chinas international influence in the field of basic nuclear chemistry, the group cultivates a batch of high-level nuclear chemistry talents and an excellent research team. 

Research Fields

1. Medical isotopes based on the accelerator 

2. Spent nuclear fuel reprocessing and refabrication  

3. Chemical properties of superheavy elements 

4. Separation of uranium from non-conventional system 


In recent years, many scientific research results have been published in Chemical Engineering Journal, ACS Applied Materials and Interface, Inorg. Chem., Ceramics International, Journal of the American Ceramic Society, Phys. Chem. Chem. Phys., Radiochim. Acta and other internationally renowned academic journals. And 7 patents have been authorized.
