Department of Chemistry

About Us

Chemistry encompasses the study of matter, its properties and its interaction with various forms of energy. Every material and organism in existence is made up of mater. Chemistry is in the core of everything from our daily chores to launching space shuttles. Therefore knowledge of chemistry is essential for very professional.

The chemistry courses currently running in the Department are B.Sc. (H) Chemistry an under-graduate level, M.Sc. Chemistry at the post-graduate level and Doctoral programme in Chemistry. The B.Sc. syllabus emphasizes learning of chemical principles in theory as well as their experimental aspects. After an introductory course in chemical structure and properties, students will take foundational level courses that will show how chemical structure can be used to explain physical, organic, inorganic and biochemical reactions and how these chemicals and their reactions can be quantitated and modelled mathematically. Students will conduct series of experiments in the laboratories with modern instrumentation and computers, research projects and seminar programs where they will learn important techniques and skills in synthesis, analysis, separation and modelling of chemical reactions.

The M.Sc. Syllabus covers the advanced theories and applications in all the major areas of chemistry viz. Organic, inorganic and physical chemistry. The curriculum provides a strong foundation for doctoral work in chemistry, biochemistry and other chemistry-related areas for positions as chemists and scientist in industry, teaching at School and junior college level and for studies in the medical and health sciences.

Chemistry department is carrying out research in an atmosphere of support and encouragement for both students and staff. Impactful research is being carried out in the department in the field of coordination chemistry, nanotechnology, supra-molecular chemistry, environmental chemistry, polymer chemistry, catalysis and bio-chemistry, organic Synthesis, Medicinal Chemistry, QSAR studies etc. Chemistry Department is also carrying out research in interdisciplinary topics for which our department has a collaboration with various research institutes and departments.
