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 3 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. The department hosts two undergraduate labs, four post graduate labs, one predoctoral lab and four research labs. Faculties and students of the department publish research articles in various international journals. We have published about more than 150 papers in various Scopus indexed journals and books. We have several MoUs signed between different industries and research universities for research collaborations and industrial partnership. The prominent alumni from our department are Dr KM Abraham (Northeastern University, USA), Dr Jayan Jacob (University of South Florida), Dr Kuruvilla Joseph(Indian Institute of Space Science and Technology), Dr Santhoash Babu (NCL, Pune), Dr. Bibin John (VSSC), Dr. Juby John(NIIST), Dr. Linda Thomas (SCTIMST) etc. Every year a large number of industries visit our department for recruiting out final year UG and PG students. For the general public, the department hosts a Water and Soil quality testing lab and rubber latex analysis lab. Most of the students opt for higher education careers like PhD or MSc after finishing their respective courses. We offer comprehensive coaching to tackle competitive examinations like CSIR-JRF/NET, GATE, JAM etc. The Chemistry Association organises several programs for improving the academic and co-curricular talents of the students.
