Department of Chemistry → Research
  • The faculty members of the Department are actively engaged in pursuing research in frontier areas of chemistry in addition to their teaching assignments. As a result, more than 30 research papers have been published from the Department in reputed National and International Journals. To keep a pace with the advancement in frontier areas of Chemistry, our faculty members have been updating their knowledge by visiting conferences at different places. At present, there are 2 ongoing projects sponsored by DST with total outlay worth around Rs. 30 lakh. The Department of Chemistry has excellent teaching programmes at the graduate and post-graduate level. The department offers theory and laboratory core courses covering basic concepts in various sub-disciplines of chemistry (physical, inorganic, organic).The present research is being carried out on different topics such as synthesis and application oriented organic chemistry, supramolecular chemistry, computational chemistry, multi-component reactions, methodology & application oriented organic chemistry etc. Newer experiments to widen the scope of chemistry lab are also being designed in order to introduce students to advanced concepts and methods of chemistry.
