About Department

The Department of Chemistry is a prominent Department of thisUniversity and it has its illustrious past. It was established at the verybeginning of this University in the year 1956 and started its functioningunder the dynamic leadership of two well known Chemists, Prof. R.C.Mehrotra and Dr. S.C. Tripathi. Later the Department reached to a height of excellencein teaching and research under the guidance of another eminent PhysicalChemist, Prof. R.P. Rastogi. Currently, the Department is led by Prof.Sudha Yadava who is a well recognized Inorganic Chemist. This Departmentstrives to create a first class experience for its students by providing astate-of-the-art educational and research environment and giving anopportunity to interact with faculty members. The Department is dedicatedto maintain its reputation as an outstanding Chemistry Department onthe basis of the rigorous curriculum and the quality of research. TheChemistry faculty is committed to encourage students to come up with innovativeideas and fulfil their dreams by preparing themselves most suited for thecompetitive global market.

TheDepartment values teaching and research on equal footing and emphasizesresearch as an integral component of the overall growth of the academicenvironment and every possible opportunity is harnessed to include theresearch in the curriculum. Teaching and research programs of theDepartment sustain a rigorous and innovative curriculum. The coremission of the Department is to advance the Chemical Sciences through themaintenance and development of the highest quality teaching and researchprograms and encouraging students to develop themselves as independent,productive and inventive scholars. The Department carries out its missionthrough shared leadership, effective management, and productive collaborations.

Successof the Department’s mission requires strong infrastructure andfinancial support, which is accomplished by having access to a physicalinfrastructure, modern instrumentation, and technical and administrative staffneeded to support teaching and research of the highest quality. The facultymembers always strive to ensure that the Department is well funded insupport of its mission through both external grants and contracts and supportfrom different funding agencies. A number of research projects from differentfunding agencies such as INSA, UGC, CSIR, CST (UP), DST, Department of Environment,ICAR etc are awarded to the faculty members for conducting research in cuttingedge areas of Chemical Science.

Thecurrent perspective of high level research in the thrust areas of ChemicalScience needs sophisticated and expensive equipment. To fulfil the requirement,the Department has a state of art air-conditioned Instrumentation Lab with on-linepower backup for 24x7 power supply. This laboratory is for our M.Sc. and Ph.D.students. The lab consists of equipment such as IBM Cluster(112 ProcessorMachine), FTIR, UV-VIS spectrophotometer, HPLC, Fluorescence spectrophotometer,MilliQ water equipment, Magnetic susceptibility measuring device, Multi-frequencyUltrasonic Interferometer and many others. Networking of Labs andcomputational facility has been established. Each faculty member isequipped with internet facility that helps in solving the problems of needystudents. The Department has air-conditioned smart class/seminar rooms equippedwith state-of-art audio-visual facility which are used regularly by thefaculty members for presentation of their specific lectures to the students aswell as by the students for their project work, presentations, seminars etc.

All thefaculty members are actively involved in teaching and research. Majority offaculty members have interactions with renowned scientists in USA,UK, Germany, Belgium, Israel, Australia and Japan and some of them have workedin World’s renowned laboratories. Several students of this Department havebeen awarded post-doctoral fellowship in foreign countries where they havevery creditably proved their worthiness. Alumni of this Department arespread all over the world and have occupied (are occupying) glorious positions.Additionally, they have also marked their presence abroad at reputedinstitutions and industries.

Theresearch activity has always been the focal point of the Department. Thisis reflected by the fact that the Department has continued support fromUGC under its Special Assistance Program (SAP) way back from 1974 andDepartment has been assisted under DSA Phase -III by an amount of Rs. 2.00Crore. In order to strengthen the infrastructure for high level researchand teaching the Department was also funded by DST under its FIST program.The quality of researches done by faculty members of the Department is alsorecognized by UP State Government and provided special funding under its Centreof Excellence program to enhance the research activities. This is furtherreflected by the fact that UGC under its BSR program sanctioned a numberof research fellowships during the past 10 years to Ph.D. students fortheir Ph.D. degree in the Department. A great emphasis is placed onmaintaining a high standard of teaching and it is always tried to let the studentsabreast with the state of the art in Science and Technology. A ComputerInformatics Lab having 15 desktops are available for M.Sc. and Ph.D.students. All the computers are connected to the high-speed LAN of theUniversity. Every year more than a dozen students qualify the NET/GATEexaminations.

Everyyear at least one refresher course is organized in the Department. Seminars and Conferencesare the regular features of the Department. Recently notable National andInternational Seminars were organized in the Department. Severalreputed scientists/ professors were invited to deliver their talk in theirspecific field of interest that were helpful for students.

In orderto provide better education, a peaceful and healthy environment is a must. The Departmentopined that to avoid unscrupulous activities of the unwanted, unknownpeople in the Department a close monitoring was needed. The installationof CCTV cameras at different places and the iron grills at open places made the Departmenta safe and secure place to study and work. In order to provide a better libraryfacility to students of Chemistry Department, the Departmental library iscomputerized and air-conditioned to provide a comfortable environment.There is a plan to equip the library with audio-visual and reprographicfacilities.

It goesto the credit of the teachers, administrative staff and students alike inmaintaining a very disciplined and healthy academic atmosphere in theDepartment. Additionally, the contribution made by the Alumni of thisDepartment has always been stimulus in keeping the Departmentaesthetically beautiful and intellectually satisfying.
