Faculty of Physical Sciences & Technology

Welcome to Department of Chemistry

The Department of Chemistry is the oldest department of university, established in 1994 with M.Sc. and Ph.D. programme. Dual Degree B.Sc. (Hons.) Chemistry-M.Sc. Chemistry came into existence from the session 2016-17. The Department of Chemistry is devoted to academics and research in subject areas like organic synthesis, organometallics, heterocyclic chemistry, catalysis, polymer chemistry, flame retardancy, medicinal chemistry etc. The laboratories of the department and Central Instrumentation Laboratory (CIL) are well equipped with modern and sophisticated equipments like NMR, LC-MS/MS, UHPLC, GC, UV, AAS, FTIR, UV-VIS-NIR, DSC, MPAES, FESEM with EDX etc. to provide exposure and first hand working experience to the students. The student’s intake in M.Sc. programme is 50+ and in Dual Degree B.Sc. (Hons.) Chemistry-M.Sc. Chemistry intake is 45+. The M.Sc. programme is of two years duration which is divided into four semesters and Dual Degree B.Sc. (Hons.) Chemistry-M.Sc. Chemistry is of five years duration. Apart from the course curriculum, annual science quiz, extension lecturers, industrial visit, workshop and interaction with industry people are other important activities of the department. More than 400 students of this Department have so far cleared the NET/JRF/GATE examination and faculty members of the department have published more than 200 research papers in good impact journals of repute during the last 5 years. The alumni of this Department are serving in leading academic and research institutes as well as industries, e.g. IIT, BARC, CSIR, DRDO, IISER, AICTE, DST, Universities, Engineering and Degree Colleges, Huntsman, ICI Paints, Sun Pharma, etc. in India as well as abroad and some are having their own establishment. The Department has successfully completed FIST (Level 1) programme and is getting support from PURSE programme of DST, New Delhi.

  • Ph.D. (Chemistry)
  • M.Sc. (Chemistry) 4 semester
  • Dual Degree B.Sc. (Hons.) Chemistry- M.Sc. (Chemistry) (3+2=5 years)
Courses Offered:

Ph.D. (Chemistry)

OBJECTIVE: The thrust research areas are organic synthesis, organometallics, heterocyclic chemistry, catalysis, polymer chemistry, flame retardancy, medicinal chemistry etc. The Ph. D. program offers direct admission to the NET-JRF qualified students and also to others through entrance examination conducted by the University, who have strong research potential.

M.Sc. (Chemistry) Specialization-Inorganic Organic Physical Duration - 4 Semester

OBJECTIVE : The M.Sc. Chemistry course has been designed with the aim of fulfilling the demands of trained human resources to give thrust to the ever-increasing chemical industry and related fields. The department has adopted the UGC Model Curriculum for this course, to enable its students to be engrossed in various institutions in the country and abroad. The Department offers three Specializations in M.Sc. programme i.e. Inorganic, Organic and Physical Chemistry. The group discussion, seminar etc. are essential components of this course to enhance understanding of the subject in depth to tackle problems independently and to adapt them to accept the new challenges in the thrust area in the present scenario. Successful students become professionally skilled and capable of being absorbed in academics, R&D, chemical industry, research institutions etc.

OBJECTIVE : The Department has also started a Dual degree programme of B.Sc.(Hons.) Chemistry- M.Sc. (Chemistry) from the session 2016-17 to attract meritorious and talented young bright candidates for furthering in chemical sciences and to inculcate the culture of research and development. The scheme and syllabi of the UG programme is designed with an aim to produce a skilled manpower for conducting high impact research in the academic & industrial organizations including national research laboratories. Students passing out this five-year programme are expected to serve as scientists at national research laboratories and other institutes of importance including industries. The key feature of this programme is that the courses are taught on Choice Based Credit System as per UGC Model Curriculum and three specialisations are offered in Inorganic chemistry, Organic chemistry and Physical chemistry in 5th year along with two semester project work.
