Overview

The Department of chemistry was established in the year 1997. The Under Graduate and Post Graduate programmes were instituted in 2017 and 2019 respectively.

The department inculcates good research culture and motivates the students for product development in order to meet out the expectations of the current scenario with their best performance. We have a dedicated team of faculty to enrich the knowledge capacity of the students.

Most of the faculty members have obtained their Ph.D. degree from the well reputed Universities/Institutes with significant years of teaching and research experience in various frontier research areas like Bio-inorganic chemistry, Organometallic Chemistry, Synthetic organic chemistry, Green chemistry, Crystallography, Coordination chemistry, Computational Chemistry, Nano Chemistry, Polymer Chemistry, Electrochemistry, Phytochemistry, etc.
