Message From The Head of Department

It is my pleasure to welcome you, on behalf of the members of the Department of Chemistry of at the School of Natural Sciences. Chemistry is a major scientific discipline, which consists of several sub disciplines that form connections with other sciences to spawn new fields. Chemistry problem solving has far-reaching relevance to many aspects of our daily life and our future career as well.

Solving the problems of today or tomorrow requires its connections with Ecology, Material Science, Planetary Science, Meteorology, Molecular Biology and Genetic Engineering. Chemical principles apply to many other specialties from medicine and pharmacology to art restoration and criminology, from genetics and space research to archaeology and oceanography.

In the Department of Chemistry, we study and develop experimental and theoretical tools to understand and control the behavior of electrons, atoms, molecules and materials – to the benefit of science and society. In addition to our role providing foundational scientific knowledge,
Chemistry’s natural synergy with other sciences leads our school and students into fascinating exchanges across disciplines, across the country and around the globe.

We have expertise in organic, inorganic, physical, analytical and biological chemistry.

Our Laboratories are equipped with the most modern technology. A wide range of instruments like Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer are available under the guidance of highly qualified school and supporting staff.

Mr. Kaile Brightone
