Chemistry is one of the premier Departments in the Faculty of Science was established in 1973. Since its inception, the department has been providing the need based quality education to the students of Chemistry. Over the last five decades, the department has built up its reputation as one among the best.  At present, the Department has experienced, qualified and highly dedicated faculty members to mentor and guide the students. 

  The syllabus offered by the department at Undergraduate level is aimed at providing students with a strong foundation of the subject and making them proficient in both theory and practical, so that they are ready to take up higher studies in Chemistry in any reputed institution all over the world. The college Central Library houses 1433 books, e-journals and INFLIBNET services. The department has two well equipped laboratories to cater the needs of the students. Department of Chemistry has a good infrastructure, enthusiastic, competent and well – qualified faculty members. The department has opened its door of knowledge to encourage the students and the faculty members to be involved themselves in Research activities through writing research articles, presenting papers in National and international level and also to publish the papers in the well reputed Journals. As a result, research papers have been published in national and international journals. Faculty members of the department have participated, presented research papers and are keeping their interest to enhance their research interest being a part of seminars/workshops frequently organized.

During the last 20 years, the faculty members of the Department have received financial assistance for their research work provided by UGC. The research group of the department is engaged in highly productive research work in some of the important areas of the subject such as polymers, coordination chemistry and sensors. At present, one of the faculty members has been recognized as Research Guide from the University of Mysore.

The department has an MoU relationship with institutes and industries for the students to do their projects and faculty exchange programme. The basic idea is to promote the learners to think beyond the textbooks and do some research to understand the concept in a more concrete way. Over the years, the department has conducted several national and state-level seminars and workshops on frontier areas of chemistry for the benefit of the students and faculty. The department has established research collaborations with laboratories and institutes. The faculty of the department has travelled extensively in India and abroad to deliver invited talks at National and International conferences. The Department, organizes special lecture programmes by eminent speakers on topics of general interests and subject for the students and staff of the college

In order to promote and to encourage the students to excel in their studies, various cash prizes have been instituted. All the awards/cash prizes carry certificates which will be given to the students who excel in their examinations every year on the occasion of the Founders’- Day.
