Shanghai Research Institute of Chemical Industry (SRICI) was established in September 1956.
The major research fields of SRICI include: Stable Isotope Separation Technology, Organic Polymer Technology, Chemical Engineering, New Materials, Catalyst Technology, Chemical Fertilizers, Fine Chemicals, Biochemical Technology, Environmental Protection and other specialized subjects.
|| From the 1960's, SRICI began the research on separating
2H, 15N, 13C, 22Ne ...etc. In 2000 SRICI built the world's largest 15N separation facility, which has met the 60% 15N needs of worldwide consumers.
In 2002 SRICI took cognizance of the extensive need of the Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and began the research on separating
18O. SRICI constructed its first 18O water distillation plant in China. This plant meets advanced world standards and now has an annual production capacity of 50 Kg, and expanded to 100 Kg per year at 2007.
