DEPARTMENT OF CHEMISTRY
department_profile

Department of Chemistry was started in the year 2014, since then it is offering M.Sc. course in Chemistry with specialization mainly in Organic Chemistry with provision of offering Inorganic and Physical specializations in certain academic session. It has adopted Choice Based Credit System (CBCS) from the academic session 2015–2016. At present, the department has three Assistant Professors (one each from Inorganic, Organic and Physical specializations), three part time faculties and two supporting staffs. The department has also started its Ph.D. program from 2018 with three students and presently, a total of seven research scholars are doing research work leading to Ph.D. degree. Some of the major areas of research are Natural Products, Biodiesel, Catalysis, Organic Synthesis, Materials Science and Polymer Chemistry. The department has three laboratories (one DST–SERB sponsored research laboratory and two for M.Sc. practical) to carry out practical and research activities. The department is well equipped with all the basic laboratory facilities for PG practical. The fund received from a DST-SERB sponsored research project has also been used to develop infrastructure for the DST-SERB sponsored research lab. Currently, some of our passed out students are pursuing their PhD at different Institutions and Universities like IIT Kharagpur, NEIST (Jorhat), NEHU (Shillong), Gauhati University and Bodoland University.
