Department of Chemistry

An Introduction

Chemistry is the study of matter and its transformation. As per American Chemical Society, the science of chemistry is involved in everything that we do, be it hearing, tasting, seeing, touching or smelling. Human body itself is a beautiful creation of chemicals and chemical reactions. Thus everyone of us is knowingly or unknowingly involved in chemistry. To understand the complex world, we need to know the chemistry happening around us. A proper understanding of chemistry enables us to address the most important challenging issues concerning the mankind in various fields of agriculture, medicine, industries, transport, science, technology, environment etc. Chemistry is thus the central science and studying chemistry helps us to live our lives better on this planet.

Aim and Objective

The Department of Chemistry at Govt. Degree College Pampore came in to existence in 2018.  The department is supplemented by a chemistry lab containing the necessary glassware, instruments and chemicals for smooth transaction of practical knowledge to the UG students. The department  envisions to provide quality chemical education to the students at par with national and global standards. It aims to inculcate among the students of chemistry fraternity, the highest standards of intellectual, moral and ethical values. The department aims to impart chemical knowledge (both theoretical and practical) so as to carve the niche for the research/scientific temper with in the chemistry student fraternity. The creation of excellent teaching-cum research atmosphere can lead to generation of quality human resource to serve people across all walks of life, thereby, contributing to the regional and national development.
