On 30 October, Xiaojun Peng, professor of Dalian University of Technology, gave an academic BoLing lecture entitled dye excited states energy release regulation and industrial applications.
The lecture was mainly about the basic knowledge of dyestuff industry and its developments in the past one hundred years. Prof. Peng indicated that dyes play a significant role in biomedicine and the electronic information fields and the dyestuff industry can attain the aim of sustainable developments by regulating molecular functions. He also introduced his research work on the achievement of quick quenching of excited states dyes, regulation of dyes exciting relaxation and the recognition of cancer cells vividly. At Question Time, Prof. Peng answered students one by one mainly about reaction mechanism, specific applications and his personal experience, and launched an academic discussion with teashers.
