Fine Chemicals is the focus of intense competition in the world's chemical industry now, the level of development as a measure of a country's chemical industry is one important indicator of it, the development of fine chemical restructuring of China's chemical industry is a major strategic one. To improve the rate of fine chemicals, "Eleventh Five" initially put the new field of petrochemical industry, fine chemical industry as a key development area. For machinery, electronics, automotive, construction, information, medicine and other industries developed rapidly, the demand for fine chemical products increased significantly in the market situation, focusing on the development of automotive chemicals, construction chemicals, electronic chemicals and other functional materials and information and specialty chemicals; focus on development of functional coatings and waterborne coatings, dyes and industrial technology, new varieties, an important chemical intermediate technologies and new varieties of green synthesis, electronic chemicals, high performance water treatment chemicals, paper chemicals, oil field chemicals, food additives, functional, high-performance environment-friendly flame retardants, surfactants, high-performance rubber and plastic additives.

    In recent years, China's scientific and technological innovation in the fine chemical industry has made a series worthy of a mature technology. Five years, to fine chemicals, specialty chemicals industry, mainly in the chemical industry, Copper Chromite(CC) a rapid increase in the proportion of production, the output value of 448.15 billion yuan from 2006 up to 2009, 963.32 billion yuan, ranking first in the industry rankings.
    Meanwhile, the Customs statistics show that in 2009, to fine chemicals, specialty chemicals, represented by imports of $ 13.64 billion, exports $ 13.1 billion, becoming the third largest exporter of chemical industry products. Chinese specialty chemicals is not only basically meet the domestic demand, there is a considerable part of the international market.

    Fine chemical industry developed alternative phosgene, Triphenyl Bismuth thionyl chloride and other toxic chlorine formamide synthesis "green chemistry" technology not only eliminates the source from the process safety and environmental risks, also declined 60% with water, the average energy consumption reduced by 30%, 40% of overall production costs down. The "push medicine, pesticide and dye industry for sustainable development" a new synthesis of key intermediate green technology, so that chlorine formamide, anhydride, carbonate, isocyanate, chloride, these five pharmaceutical, pesticide, dye and polymer materials, key intermediate synthesis to achieve a green and clean technology. More than a dozen companies in dozens of green products for application of the technology transformation, achieved good economic and social benefits.

    China Petroleum & Chemical Shengli Oilfield Co. Ltd. in the development of surfactant + polymer binary complex drive technology in the process, the capture of alkali-free conditions, the role of surfactant alone to achieve ultra-low oil-water interfacial tension of an international problem, and in practice, increasing oil recovery, the binary complex and efficient flooding EOR technology to become China's "Flooding guardian." The results have been in victory Gudong oil region, an island oil field, Musk R-1 oil fields and Chengdong Shengtuo large-scale field application, a profit of over ten billion yuan.

    New reaction - separation technology is the integration of chemical intermediates to achieve cleaner production and energy saving is one important way. Nanjing University of reaction conditions developed by the separation of different integration technologies, Octylferrocene the different reaction conditions for the successful integration and distillation produce chemical intermediates, greatly improved the reaction conversion and selectivity, reduce raw material and energy consumption, reduce the byproducts and emissions. The technology used in acid, benzene, formaldehyde and other chemical intermediates dozen of production units, the effective promotion of the fine organic intermediates to low energy consumption, low pollution, low-cost cleaner production direction, has achieved remarkable economic and social benefits.

    A production of acetochlor fork new process uses a low toxicity for non-aromatic solvent, catalyst and stabilizer in the new conditions, to improve the conversion rate, eliminate impurities, color, product content of 97%, yield 92%; to avoid the traditional chloromethyl ether route a large number of high salinity, high COD wastewater, and high levels of hydrogen chloride gas generation, fine chemicals suppliers avoiding the carcinogenic teratogenic chloromethyl ether production and use, improve resource utilization, more than 97% reduction . As a common innovation, new technology of a fork in the butachlor and metolachlor herbicides such as the production of acetyl chloride with good promotion prospects.
