Department of Chemistry

The Department of Chemistry is the pioneer of Chemistry education in Kerala as one of the biggest departments of all the colleges in Kerala with two under graduate programs, three post graduate programs, MPhil program and PhD in different areas of study, which is a blend of basic science courses, applied science courses and vocational courses. It hosts 17 permanent faculties and three adjunct faculties. The major areas of research in the department are Materials Science, Polymer Chemistry, Synthesis and Technology, Environment Chemistry, Electrochemistry, Physical Chemistry, Organic Synthesis, Theoretical and Computational chemistry and Chemical Physics.

We have published about more than 150 papers in various Scopus indexed journals and books. We have several MOU’s signed between different industries and research universities for research collaborations and industrial partnership.
