Min Enze, male, Han nationality, is a native of Chengdu, Sichuan Province. He graduated from the Chemical Engineering Department of Central University in 1946. Min later obtained a doctorate degree from State University of Ohio in 1951.
Considered an expert in the petroleum industry, Min worked as a senior engineer and director of the academic board of the Research Institute of Petroleum Science at the China Petroleum Industry Corporation. In the 1960s, he developed and manufactured a new process of kneading-dipping for congruent catalyst of mount meal phosphate. His experiments forwarded the design base for a propellant reconstructed with platinum. Min then successfully manufactured a beaded sili-alumnia catalyst required in production aviation gasoline.
In the 1970s and 1980s, Min led the development of several catalysts, including molybdenum-nickel-phosphate plus hydrogen catalyst, nitric oxide flux agent semi-synthetic zeolite cracking catalyst. All of these were put into production after their design completion. After 1980, he led the research on basic studies on new catalytic materials and new chemical reaction projects. Among the new materials developed from this research included stratiform clay, amorphous ally, load heteroplyacid, and nanometric molecular screen.
Min hosted the Friendly Environment and Petroleum Industry of the Catalytic Chemistry Reaction Project during the 9th five-year plan by the national Fund Board of Natural Sciences. During this time, he developed manufacturing techniques of chemical fiber monomeric caprolactam.
In 1980, he was elected an academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
