About Chemistry Department


The department of Chemistry has been devoted towards quality teaching and research since inception. The department presently conducts M.Sc. and Ph.D. programs in agricultural chemicals and chemistry. Presently department has two Assistant Professors and seven Professors. The department has substantial potential of teaching and research in the area of agricultural sciences with emphasis on agrochemicals, phytochemistry, green chemistry, pesticide residue, bio inorganic, plant microbiology and material science. Since past couple of decades, substantial funding has been availed by the department from DRDO, UGC, DBT, DST, Ministry of Environment and Forest, Uttarakhand Council of Science and Technology, private organizations and DST, FIST. The department is equipped with necessary modern analytical facilities for fundamental and applied research. The department has collaborations with various national institutes and universities for multidisciplinary research. The worth of dissemination of research through quality publications and patents has been established by the department. Many patents have been granted to department and a number are in the process of grant.
