China award winner joy

Chemistry graduate student Shan Jiang was "overwhelmed with joy" to be named one of just 28 Outstanding Self-financed Chinese Students Studying Abroad in the UK, by the China Scholarship Council. The 27-year-old said: "I was very, very excited to receive an award in recognition of my PhD study and research. It's a great honor for me to actually have somebody out there who appreciates the hard work I have put into my research." Shan is working on a hot topic in modern chemistry, the development of porous organic cages for gas storage and gas separation.
