Applied Chemistry


image description

The Department of Applied Chemistry comprises a qualified, trained, and dedicated team of faculty and staff members who work in a highly encouraging environment. It supports the undergraduate and Ph.D. students in understanding chemical aspects of Engineering so that they can be the better engineers for the nation. The faculty of the Department is actively involved in research activity, testing & consultancy. The Departmental research has been supported by the Department of Atomic Energy, Board of Nuclear Science, All India Council of Technical Education, Chhattisgarh Council of Science and Technology, and CG Medicinal Plant Board. The Department has successfully completed six sponsored projects and four are ongoing. Doctoral research is carried out actively in the Department. The major thrust is the area of analytical chemistry, environmental chemistry, surface chemistry, drug and chemical characterization of medicinal plants. Thirty research scholars have already been awarded Ph.D. and presently nine candidates are pursuing their Ph.D. from this Department.The Department has signed Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Division Of Radiochemistry,University Bosania,Institute of Nuclear Science ,Ege University Turkey ,Department of chemistry North Bengal University ,Darjeeling ,West Bengal ,Department of chemistry Gov.D.T.P.G College Utai,Durg Department of Chemistry Bhilai Mahila Mahavidyalaya,Bhilai .The research activities of faculties are in collaboration with International and National Universities. The Department is a recognized consultant of various bottled mineral water producing companies, cement and steel industries, Nagar Nigam, etc.
