The Department of Chemistry, established in 2015,is located at the first floor of Sardar Patel Bhawan of the University. The Department imparts education at Master level, Masters programme in Chemistry (M.Sc. Chemistry) with Inorganic, Physical, Organic specializations and doctorate level, Ph.D. programme. The M.Sc. programme is of two years split into four semesters. At the entry level in M.Sc. programme,every year 60 students are admitted through the entrance examination. In the Ph.D. Programme, at present 3 research scholars are actively engaged in the doctoral work.Separate laboratories are available for each specialization along with a research lab. From the session2019-20, CBCS and from 2022-23, CBCS-LOCF is implemented in the Department. The Department provides good opportunities for research at doctoral level on a variety of topics in conventional and inter- disciplinary areas with other departments and institutions. Major thrust is in the areas of Heterocyclic Chemistry, Medicinal Chemistry, Green Chemistry, Microwave-mediated Organic Synthesis and Reagents in Organic synthesis. A number of chemistry-based activities like science quiz competitions, extension lectures, seminars and workshops are organized regularly. A good number of students have qualifiedNET-JRF, GATE and other competitive examinations. The Chemical Society of the Department is actively engaged in organizing various co-curricular and outreach activitiesfor the overall personality development of the students.

Vision
To train students to be highly effective instructors, researchers, and contributors to Chemical based industries and stakeholders globally. Be regarded as a prestigious centre of scholarly achievement worldwide.

Mission

  • To advance chemical sciences research, science, and education.
  • To create skilled employees for businesses and industries based on chemistry's experimental methods and methodologies.
  • To offer learning environments that are centered on the needs of the students in order to help them develop as people as a whole.
