Department of Chemistry

Department of Chemistry

The Department is one of those in few departments which were established soon after the inception of the Chaitanya Science & Arts College, Pamgarh in 2002. Over the period, the department has been nurtured under the able guidance of the eminent and educationalist/chemists. Late Dr. S.K. Vajpai then principal and eminent chemist extended his expertise in the modernization of infrastructure of the department.The present faculty members are actively engaged besides their teaching Programme in pursuing other scientific activities in frontier area of chemistry. To keep a pace with the advancement in frontier areas of chemistry our faculty members have been visiting laboratories and industries of renowned chemists of country and states. In addition, the department has been successful in establishing chemistry instrumentation, equipped with a number of modern, sophisticated instruments. This has brought the department to a level where we can venture to pursue skills in frontier areas of chemistry.

Our VIsion:-
