Desk of Head, Discipline of Chemistry

Discipline of Chemistry at IIT Indore, which comes in the School of Basic Sciences, aims to provide exceptional training to all the students interested in cutting-edge research and education. The strength of the department has been and continues to be excellence in research and teaching. Started in August 2009 our department is rapidly growing every semester in terms of size, research diversity, external funding and number of publications. At present we have 14 faculty members and approximately 77 Ph.D. students with research interests ranging from traditional areas (organic, inorganic and physical) to highly interdisciplinary and collaborative research areas such as nanotechnology, polymers, biochemical, materials and analytical.

The faculty of the department is extremely well qualified, and motivated with a strong commitment to teaching and research. Our department is well equipped with state-of-art sophisticated instrumentation facilities to facilitate research in almost all areas of chemistry and interdisciplinary research. The main source of external funding comes from CSIR (Council of Scientific and Industrial Research) and DST (Department of Science and Technology).

The alumni base of the department is slowly increasing, in which, many of them have occupied research (postdoctoral) positions in academia, in India and abroad. Their accomplishments have been outstanding and reflect on the quality training imparted at the undergraduate and graduate level.

We have M.Sc (Master of Science) degree program in Chemistry from the academic year of 2013. We suggest all prospective students and other visitors to explore our website to learn more about our department
