It has dedicated faculty members with rich experience in academics and research, imparting high quality education with active involvement in research and development. The Department of Chemistry has a good infrastructure with well-established laboratory which allow the students to perform their experiments individually. The area of research includes Organic Chemistry, Physical Chemistry, Spectroscopy, Surface Chemistry, Medicinal Chemistry, Catalysis, Electrochemistry, Biochemistry, Analytical Chemistry, Nano-technology, Polymers and Composites, Reaction dynamics and Crystallography.
More than 25 research articles have been published in International journals and National journals/conferences in the last five years.
Students are encouraged to do research projects. Science stuff Association acts as a platform for the students to develop their skills and research aptitude. Invited talks and Guest lectures are conducted periodically to create the awareness in the student's mind of latest happenings.
As a part of social activity, School students and Polytechnic students of the neighboring areas are exposed to the subject of Chemistry through the exhibitions conducted by the Science stuff association. The Faculty members of the Department are encouraged to participate in the Seminar/Workshop/Conferences frequently and also to visit the national research institutes to update and emerge their skills for the service of the student community.
The department has spacious, well equipped labs and instruments to provide practical exposure to the students. Students are imparted practical education under the experienced faculty members. Students take a keen interest in making working models and investigatory projects related to corrosion, kinetics, adsorption, water treatment, water analysis, polymer and composites.
