Department of PG Studies and Research in Chemistry


The department of Chemistry was established in the year 1992. Over the years the department has grown in strength and stature. The department is actively involved in various academic and research programmes in association with Industries, Institutions, Research Organizations and Universities. The faculty members of the department have got major research projects from various funding agencies, like UGC, DST, SERB, etc. Every year the department is conducting campus interview for M.Sc. students by inviting different R & D institutions and pharmaceutical industries. The department has successfully completed DST-FIST Phase-I and Phase- II programme in association with the Industrial Chemistry department. The department has received Rs. 30 lakh under non-SAP programme and Rs. 45 lakh under UGC-SAP DRS programme. Over the years the department has produced more than hundred and fifty Ph.D.'s and more than thousand research papers have been published in reputed National/International journals. At present thirty five research scholars are working for Ph.D. programme and more than hundred students has cleared NET, K-SET and GATE examinations. The department is offering Choice Based Credit System (CBCS) to M.Sc. students in addition to semester scheme and it is first of its kind among the entire state universities. The department is engaged in various academic activities like conducting Seminars, Symposia, Conferences and Workshops to provide a platform for Students, Teachers, Scientists and Industrialists to discuss and share their scientific ideas. The department has received the "BEST DEPARTMENT AWARD" from Kuvempu University in the academic year 2009-10 for its outstanding contribution to the academic and research activities. Currently, the research work is being carried out in various fields such as Electrochemistry, Coordination Chemistry, Synthetic Organic Chemistry, Corrosion & Metal Finishing, Nanotechnology, Synthetic Dyes & Pigments.
