The Department of Chemistry is associated with the teaching of chemistry subject to the students of all science streams of the college ever-since the college has started science stream in 1995.

It has a well equipped laboratory with required chemicals for conducting the regular practical classes, study project reports as well as research activities like consultancy services. The lab is also equipped with instruments like Coductometers, TDS Meters, pH meters, Molecular model kit, Digital Balances, etc. The lecturers take more care to prevent the chemical accidents in the lab. The Department has a first aid box and fire extinguishers ready for any unforeseen chemical accidents.

The department has internet facility. The members of the faculty practise and use the modern tools and further techniques like LCDs, practical demonstrations with the help of models, etc.

OBJECTIVES :

The Department of Chemistry has been functioning with the objectives as:

  • To lay the foundation in chemical concepts, laws, theories and mechanisms and reactions in chemistry.
  • To provide broad based instruction in the fundamental theoretical knowledge, experimental techniques and research outlooks in Chemistry.
  • To develop laboratory skills in performing experiments, recording, interpreting the results and time management.
  • To make the students perceive the very importance of the interdisciplinary nature of chemistry and integrate into it the knowledge of mathematics, physics and other disciplines as a multi pronged approach towards a wide variety of chemical problems to arrive suitable solutions.
  • To encourage the understanding and appreciation of the scientific methods as a mode of inquiry which leads to the activity of research.
  • To inculcate the spirit of research in the minds of the students.
