Department of Chemistry

The Department of Chemistry was established in 1971 to impart knowledge in chemical sciences at the undergraduate level. Keeping abreast with the National Policy of education the department introduced project-based learning- Analytical chemistry as a C component course under the restructuring program in 1983. The department has pride in designing the curriculum for MSc Analytical Chemistry and is a Pioneer to run this course since 1987 at 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 eight spacious and well-equipped laboratories for conducting undergraduate and postgraduate practical courses. The department also has three research laboratories and a separate computer laboratory with internet access. The department expresses its gratitude to DST for providing a grant of Rs. 42 lacks under the FIST program, Rs. 10 lakhs by DBT 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 center has motivated, staff and students to pursue research work in the emerging fields of chemistry related to coordination chemistry, separation science, organic synthesis methods, material sciences, etc. The success of research work carried out in the department is due to the availability of sophisticated instruments like Atomic Absorption Spectrometer (AAS), High-performance liquid Chromatography (HPLC), FT-IR, Gas Chromatograph (GC) and Ultraviolet-Visible Spectrometer. In the last five years, more than 69 research papers have been published by our staff in the journal of national and international repute. Fourteen minor and one major research projects funded by UGC and Savitribai Phule Pune University are completed by department staff. 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 RandD, Q.C. and Q.A. in several pharmaceutical industries like Macleods, Lupin, Calyx, Harmann, Gharda, etc. The activities of our department are focused on achieving the mission of producing successful chemists, entrepreneurs and professionals with academic knowledge and skills for contributing to the current scientific demand of society.
