In his lecture, he reviewed the developing history of chemistry respectively from the evolution of universe and from the chemistry and life. He offered a gluttonous academic feast for teachers and students by systematically expounding the molecular recognition and self-organization process from the material to the development of supramolecular tissue in life and from the generation of three-dimensional chemical concept to the molecular characteristics. More than 1400 teachers and students attended, who were respectively from the Materials science, Chemistry, Chemical engineering, Biology, Resources and environment. The heated interactive interlocution was carried out. The report was presided over by Vice President Zeng Chunnian.

  During the visit, President Zhang Qingjie cordially met Professor Lehn and highly praised him of his profound academic attainments and nobel academic reputation in the field of Supramolecular Chemistry; President Zhang pointed out that Chemistry is closely related to Material science, Life science, Medicine, Physics and many other subjects. And President Zhang hoped that Professor Lehn could guide the growth of young WUT teachers and promote the construction and development of related disciplines, lead our university to become an important scientific research base in the world, and constantly improve the social reputation and international influence of WUT.
