Research highlights:
The department of chemistry established in 1971 is one of the oldest departments of Guru Nanak Dev University. The department has earned a repute at the national & international level with the coordination and achievement of the dedicated faculty and non teaching staff. The department has been granted the status of "Centre for Advanced Studies", by UGC, New Delhi with the financial grant of Rs.136 lacs for the period 2008-13 under phase I and again in phase II with grant of Rs. 300 lacs (2014-2019). The Department of Science and Technology (DST) also sanctioned a grant of Rs. 256 lacs under FIST for the period 2009-2014 to purchase NMR (400 MHz) & CCD. The state of the art research facilities in the department such as 300 MHz NMR spectrometer, X-Ray powder Diffractometer, IR with variable temperature facility, Mossbauer Spectrometer, Fluorescence Spectrophotometer, CHNS Analyzer, HPLC, Tensiometer, Magnetic Susceptibility Balance, molecular modeling software, DTATGA Differential Scanning Calorimeter, Microwave Synthesizer, BET surface analyzer, Vibratory sample Magnetometer, Isothermal Calorimeter and Dynamic Light Scatterer etc. and modern fumehoods are available in the research laboratories. Most of the students laboratories have been fitted with RO water purifier systems and Electronic balances.
