Zhejiang University, founded in 1897, is one of the world’s leading research and teaching institutions of tertiary education. It is located in Hangzhou—a historic and culturally dynamic city with picturesque scenery in China. The motto of Zhejiang University—‘seeking the truth and pioneering new trails’—reflects its time-honored dedication to knowledge and innovation.
Zhejiang University has attracted a galaxy of distinguished faculties in the globe. The current community of scholars includes 17 members of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and 21 members of the Chinese Academy of Engineering. The academic distinction of its 3,562 faculty members means it is poised to pursue its mission of advancing knowledge and making generous contributions to the world. The university’s fields of excellence span 12 disciplines, including philosophy, economics, law, education, literature, history, art, science, engineering, agriculture, medicine, management, etc. It has an enrollment of 47,339 degree candidates.
Research at Zhejiang University is exceptional in its breadth and depth. It has successively occupied the coveted No. 1 spot among China’s institutions, in many scientific and research indices, such as publications, paper citations and patents. The total budget for sponsored projects added up to 3.316 billion yuan in 2015. During the 12th Five-year Plan, the university clinched 4 first prizes and 26 second prizes in national science & technology awards. The latest ESI (Essential Science Indicators) statistics reveal that Zhejiang University ranks among the top 1% in 18 scientific fields. It is ranked 106th and 110th in the world by the U.S. News & World Report and the QS World University Rankings in their 2015 editions and ranks among the top 100 by the 2015 Times Higher Education World Reputation Rankings.
Zhejiang University is also committed to promoting cooperation with overseas institutions. It has entered into partnership with 120 overseas universities from 26 countries and has an enrollment of approximately 6,000 international students.

Harnessing hydrogen from H<sub>2</sub>O
Extracting hydrogen from water could become cheaper and more efficient thanks to a new electrocatalyst.
Hydrogen is very energy dense and can be produced from water, making it attractive as a clean, renewable fuel. However, a large electrical current or an electrocatalyst is required to speed along the chemical reaction. These are typically made from rare and expensive metals, such as platinum.
Researchers from Zhejiang University were part of a team that built a new catalyst by growing tiny flakes of molybdenum diselenide (MoSe2), a semiconducting inorganic compound, on graphene, a layer of carbon one atom thick. They soaked the nanoflakes in hot ammonia to infuse them with nitrogen, which introduced extra electrons and increased the material’s conductivity.
The new nanoflakes generated hydrogen from water using a relatively low voltage and sustained their catalytic performance for more than 32 hours.
