The Department started functioning with three visiting faculties for B. Tech. teaching, but has expanded to a strength of six, with four Asst Professors, one Senior Professor, and one Visiting professor. Several students have been enrolled for Ph. D. programs in theoretical and experimental branches of chemistry. The Chemistry Laboratory is equipped with state of the art work tables and safety equipment.
The lab ameneties include fumehoods, water bath, hot air oven, RO water plant, ice flake machine, electronic weighing balances, electrical conductivity meters, pH meters, hot plates, melting point determinators, electric Bunsen burners, orbital shakers, etc. UV-VIS spectrophotometers and colorimeters are available for instrumental measurements and analysis, and the lab is run on a rigorous policy of waste minimization. Started as a teaching lab for B. Tech. students, it is being upgraded to an advanced research lab with modern instrumental and computational facilities.
