Amongst the Basic Sciences, Chemistry deals with the study of composition, properties, constitution, and mutual interaction of different kinds of matter. The role of chemistry in modern society can be seen in diverse fields such as chemicals, petroleum products, pharmaceuticals, polymers and plastics and biotechnology. It also plays a role in cleaning up environment, improving methods for producing, processing food, and making automobiles softer and more fuel efficient. Chemists can seek jobs in industrial and governments sectors, and in research and development organizations. The Department of chemistry also boasts of a stand-alone wet research laboratory for water treatment, organic synthesis and material processing besides having its own instrumentation laboratories.
