Li Zhengming, a professor of the
National Pesticide Engineering Research Center, is a famous organic
chemist and a
member of the Chinese Academy of Engineering. He has
undertaken about 10 research projects including 973
Program, National Key Technologies R & D Program and projects funded by
National Natural Science Foundation of China. So far he has already published 570
papers and applied for 32 patents.
Lihas devoted himself to
technological innovations and transformations of scientific achievements. Up to
now, he has researched more than a thousand projects. But Many of them were
not put into production for that he is concerned about the price of his
products and he only aims at pesticide that anyone can afford.
Chinese first super effective and
eco-friendly herbicide with independent intellectual properties— Monosulfuron was discovered by Li. There are two types of it have passed
strict experiments of forty aspects including chemistry, effectiveness,
production, toxicology, environment, etc. They were registered as new
herbicides with governmental certificates and fill the vacancy of industrialization
of herbicide in China. In 2007, Monosulfuron was approved as a new pesticide by
the Ministry of Agriculture, breaking the monopoly of a few developed countries
on novel pesticide discovery.
Li donated his 500,000 reward of
Tianjin Science and Technology Achievement Award to Yang Shixian Scholarship
Foundation. He has been teaching for 60 years, and instructed numerous
students. Today,most of his 148 graduates has become elites in
the area of organic chemistry and pesticide.
