The Department offers Ph.D. Programme in Chemistry . More than seventy students have been pursuing research work in thrust areas in organic chemistry, heterocyclic chemistry, medicinal chemistry, co-ordination chemistry, organometallic chemistry, phytochemistry, structure and ligand based drug designing, analytical method development and pharmaceutical formulations.

The Department of Chemistry has the state of art facilities research work. Some major instruments, that it has included FT-IR, HPLC, HPTLC, GC, UV-VIS spectrophotometers; Spectrofluorometer and Gouy's balance, are accessible to research students of chemistry.

Some of the research activities are as follows: 
  • Synthesis, characterization and structural investigation of medicinally potent organic compounds.
  • Chiral, stereo-selective and enantio-selective synthesis of simple and complex molecules of industrial as well as therapeutically important compounds using green chemistry approach.
  • Synthesis, characterization and structural investigation of coordination compounds of macrocyclic, schiff bases and related ligands.
  • Research in the thrust areas of the pharmaceutical chemistry like drug development, synthesis and QSAR studies of drugs.
  • A collaborative work with CSIR laboratories, national/international pharmaceutical industries and other national/international organizations.

  University has approved  following faculty members of the Department of Chemistry for doing their research work:
