Department Profile


  • The department of chemistry was established in 1958 and has evolved itself into a well known and repute academic research center. Its faculty consists of 8 Professors, 2 Associate Professors and 4 Assistant Professors.
  • The department has won several recognitions at national level and successfully completed four phases of UGC-SAP, one phase each of UGC COSIST and DST-FIST programs.
  • The department has been identified as a nodal center for successfully running UGC Center of Excellence in Applied Polymers (CEAP).
  • This award is the crown in its glory as it is one of the 12 such centers across the entire country identified by UGC.
  • The department runs M. Sc. program in different branches of chemistry namely organic, inorganic, physical, analytical and industrial polymer. About fifty research students are on the roll presently.
  • The faculty has been undertaking research projects sponsored by various national agencies such as UGC, DST, CSIR, BRNS, IUC-DAEF etc.
  • The research work involves the probing various aspects of polymers including synthesis, characterization and applications, synthetic organic chemistry, surfactant and non-electrolyte chemistry, bioactive inorganic metal complexes and theoretical chemistry etc.
  • The department houses various sophisticated equipment such as 13C NMR, Tensile Testing Machine,DMA, Simultaneous TGA and DTA, DSC, AFM, High Temperature GPC, Static Light Scattering, FT-IR, VSM and several equipments for polymer testing analysis.

Future Plan


Plans related to the infrastructure development:
  • To strengthen the department with Infrastructural and Research facilities to bring them at par with the global standards
  • Teaching Learning: To encourage the teaching faculty to apply for more no. of Research Projects. Conducting the seminars frequently for renewal of the subject domain knowledge of Faculty, research scholars and students by facilitating the interactions with renowned personalities , by inviting them as resource persons and visiting faculty
  • Research: To develop in to a center for potential of excellence in chemical science research
  • To establish close industry linkages for mutual benefit and also to increase the campus placement of students
  • To build a strong and dynamic alumni base and involve them in the development activities of chemical science discipline and research
  • To act as a nodal centre for developing proposals for start up grants and skill development
