Brief History    In 1989 the Joint Open Laboratory of Polymer Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) was founded, and in 1995 and 1999 the laboratory was rated Excellent in state audits consecutively.  Upon approval of the Ministry of Science and Technology in 2000, the laboratory was reorganized to combine other relevant polymer programs at the Institute of Chemistry (ICCAS) and Changchun Institute of Applied Chemistry (CIAC) to establish the State Key Laboratory of Polymer Physics and Chemistry, jointly operated by the two institutes.  In 2004 the laboratory was again rated Excellent in the state audit and received the State Key Laboratory Achievement Award.  
 
People      Working in the Changchun branch of the laboratory are more than 300 scientists and students, including 27 professors, of which 1 CAS academician and 11 ¡°National Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholars¡± winners, and 23 staff members and 14 postdoctoral fellows. The laboratory has been a training base for skillful polymer scientists and engineers. Since 1999, 151 PhD and 47 master¡¯s degrees have been awarded, and 27 students have received various prizes, including the CAS Presidential Award and the CAS-BASF Scholarship. Many students graduated from this laboratory have become professors and industrial researchers, among them 13 National Outstanding Young Researcher Award winners.
 
Research  
The primary mission of the Laboratory is to advance fundamental polymer science and develop critical technologies to meet the needs of the nation.  The main interest of the Laboratory is the fundamental research of polymer science and applied polymer science, which inherited from the early research work in polymer science in middle 20th century in China and reflects a drastic development of our understanding in the area around the world. The Laboratory encourages interdisciplinary and collaborative research across materials science, information science, life science, and environmental science.  Recently the research in this Laboratory has focused in the following three areas:
1. Polymers for high performance: controllable polymerization, polymer structure and property manipulation, and reactive processing.
2. Complex polymer systems: polymer microstructures, surface and interface, multi-scale simulations, and chemistry and physics of polymeric soft matters.
3. Molecular engineering of functional polymers: environmental friendly polymers, polymers for biomedical applications, and organic optoelectronic polymers.
