Infra Structure of the Department

State-of-the-art instruments like NMR (300 MHz with multinuclear Probe), X-ray Diffractometer, GC Mass, UV, IR and Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometers, CHNS analyzer, HPLC, DSC, Polarograph, Mossbaur etc. are available for research and teaching.

News - Activities in the Department

National symposia / seminars are organized by the Department from time to time for the betterment of the academics / researchers to keep pace with the scientific society. Apart from this, Refresher Courses in the subject of Chemistry on the burning topics are held at the Academic Staff College of the University almost regularly. Modern research facilities are available in the Department for carrying out research in :

Coordination Chemsitry,

Organometallic Chemistry,

Chemsitry of Lanthanides and Actinides,

Solid State and Material Chemistry,

Heterocyclic and macrocyclic Chemistry,

Bio-Organic and Bio-inorganic Chemistry,

Photochemistry, X-ray crystallography,

Micellar Chemistry, Analytical Chemistry,

Theoretical Chemistry, Electrochemistry,

Chemistry of oils,

and fatty acids; and Thermo-dynamics.

The faculty of the Department have been sanctioned several projects by various funding agencies like CSIR, UGC, DAE, DST, DBT and DRDO. The Department has been adopted by the UGC under Special Assistance Programme (SAP) and by DST under Improvement of Science & Technology (FIST) Program. Under this program, an Internet Lab. has been established for the use of the teachers and the students for academic and research purposes. Our Department is under active consideration of the University Grants Commission for upgradation from SAP to Centre for Advance Studies level and shall shortly be implemented. The Departmental Library has a collection of 16500 books / reference books with regular subscription of 28 journals. The Department also runs a Book Bank, which lends books to the students for the entire session.
