Abstract: Based on the concept of integration of science and education, the scientific research project “Nano-ZnO Pigment Thermal Control Coating” is transformed into an experiment in materials chemistry laboratory for undergraduates. Nano-ZnO prepared by organic amine-assisted hydrothermal method is used as the pigment, and the thermal control coating is obtained by the blade coating method. The experiment has the aerospace and defense background and covered chemistry, materials and energy disciplines which exhibited novelty, practicality and operability. Students can obtain basic scientific research training from the synthesis method and characterization technology of pigment powder, coating preparation and optical performance testing. It is conducive to cultivate students’ home country feelings, laboratory skills, exploration and innovation ability, deepen the theoretical knowledge and stimulate students’ interest in scientific research.

Key words: ZnO, Scientific research transformation, Thermal control coating, Teaching experiment
