Chemistry Research
The Research Centre of the Department of Chemistry was established in the year 2012. At present 13 scholars are perusing their Ph D work. The research carried out in the Department is oriented towards the applied end of the research spectrum.The Research Department is mainly concentrating on polymer chemistry and environmental chemistry. Hence most of the results are of direct relevance to the needs of the society at large.
Objectives
1.To impart a foundation of chemistry of sufficient breadth and depth to enable them to understand and critically interpret the primary chemical literature           
2.To disseminate knowledge on the interdisciplinary nature of chemistry and to integrate knowledge of mathematics, physics and other disciplines to a wide variety of chemical problems.           
3.To enable the Students to use presentation tools to create effective tables, graphs, and chemical structures           
4.To learn the laboratory skills needed to design, safely conduct and interpret chemical research           
5.To enable the students to use chemicals without harming the environment
