Department of Chemistry

Department of chemistry was established in 1971 for imparting knowledge in chemical sciences at Under Graduate level. Keeping abreast with the National Policy of education the department introduced project based learning of Analytical chemistry as a “C” component course under restructuring programme in 1983.

The department has pride of designing the curriculum for M. Sc. Analytical Chemistry and is Pioneer to run this course since 1987 in Savitribai Phule Pune University. Later on two more courses Viz Organic Chemistry and Drug Chemistry were introduced for Post Graduate in 1991 and 2005 respectively. The department has nine spacious and well equipped laboratories for conducting Under Graduate and Post Graduate practical courses. The department also has four research laboratories and a separate computer laboratory with open internet access for online research and reference work. The department expresses its gratitude to DST for providing a grant of Rs. 42 lacks under FIST programme and UGC for providing Rs. 15 lacks for augmenting the infrastructure facilities in the laboratories. The strength of our department is reflected by research and placement activities. Recognition of the department by Savitribai Phule Pune University as a research centre with seven PhD guides has motivated staff and students to pursue research work in the emerging fields of chemistry. The success of research work carried out in the department is due to availability of sophisticated instruments like Atomic Absorption Spectrometer (AAS), High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC), FT-IR, Gas Chromatograph (GC) and Ultraviolet-Visible Spectrometer. Department has a good library consisting of 283 reference books and 5 research journals which are useful for UG, PG, research students and staff.

In the last five years more than 104 research papers have been published by our staff in the journal of national and international repute. Nine minor and one major research projects funded by UGC and Savitribai Phule Pune University are completed. Not limiting to only teaching and research activities the department as a service to society conducts campus interviews. It is significant to note that more than 80% of the students have secured employment in R&D, Q.C. & Q.A. in several pharmaceutical and chemical industries like Macleods, Lupin, Calyx, Harmann, Gharda, etc. The activities of our department are focused on achieving the mission of producing successful scientists, entrepreneurs and professionals with academic knowledge and skills for contributing to the current scientific demand of the society.
