100 Best universities for Chemistry in China

Below is the list of best universities in China ranked based on their research performance in Chemistry. A graph of 30.5M citations received by 1.74M academic papers made by 471 universities in China was used to calculate publications' ratings, which then were adjusted for release dates and added to final scores.

We don't distinguish undergraduate and graduate programs nor do we adjust for current majors offered. You can find information about granted degrees on a university page but always double-check with an official site as it's constantly changing data.
