About the Department
The Chemistry Department provides the opportunity for an undergraduate student to obtain a thorough fundamental knowledge of all fields of chemistry. There are lecture courses in the general areas of inorganic, organic, and physical chemistry, plus many more specialized courses. More important than the formal lecture and laboratory courses is the intellectual environment provided by the department.
The faculty members of the Department have expertise in frontier areas of research such as heterocyclic synthesis, catalysis, organic functional materials, polymeric membranes, electrochemistry, nanomaterials, photochemistry, bioinorganic chemistry and polymers. They have contributed towards publication of good a number of research papers in national and international Journals and Conferences and have patents in their name.
The main mission of the department is to generate human resource of excellent quality, including chemists with high professional competence in interdisciplinary research encompassing Biology, Chemistry and Physics etc to fit for national needs. The department is equipped with state-of-the-art instruments required to carry out modern day Chemistry practicals as well as research. One of the unique features of the courses offered to B. Tech students is to develop fundamental as well as application oriented approach among the students. The Department offers PhD programme in various areas of Chemistry. Doctoral students are provided comprehensive practical exposure to the various instrumental techniques required for their research. The Department plans to start postgraduate programs in near future in the areas of Advanced Materials Chemistry and Nanotechnology etc.
