The Department of Chemistry is one of the oldest departments of
Yeshwant Mahavidyalya, Nanded established in 1963. The only Department with M. Sc. Org. Chemistry on Granted basis have been started since
1967, and since then we are running undergraduate, postgraduate, and Ph.D. courses in specializations, Analytical, Inorganic, Organic
and Physical chemistry.
The chemistry department has a rich tradition of imparting high-quality teaching and research in cutting-edge thrust areas of chemical science, providing intensive research training to students and research scholars. The students have access to a seminar Hall, Central library where a large collection of international and national reputed journals and reference books of Chemistry are housed. Besides this, the department has a state-of-art instrumentation facility and laboratory infrastructure for conducting quality research. The department was awarded UGC- CPE grants, UGC-BSR program the DST- FIST program. The department has smart classrooms and procured high-end instruments for research with the support of UGC grants.
The department of chemistry organized workshops, symposia, and national and international conferences on thrust areas of chemical sciences. More than 27 postgraduate students have qualified NET/SET and GATE examinations in last seven years. The department has produced 20 Ph.Ds, and published 70 research papers in National, International journals during 2016-2022. Presently 25 candidates are pursuing their research under the guidance of Eight Research Guides.
To enhance our status as an outstanding teaching and multidisciplinary research centre which is recognized for its quality teaching, innovative research to promote and discovery of new molecular entities that attracts the best students globally.
Our mission is to cultivate a world-class quality teaching environment for undergraduate, postgraduate, and doctoral research programs to empower our students to meet the challenges of academic and industrial arenas. We foster and encourage the pursuit of interdisciplinary research in the thrust areas of chemical sciences.
Common Instrumentation Center
It is established in college for the optimized utilization of instrumentation facilities available in college. The CIC is well equipped with various instruments like Fourier-Transform Infrared Spectrophotometer (FT-IR), Spectrofluorophotometer (RF), UV-Spectrophotometer (UV), High-Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC), Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry(GC-MS), Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer (AAS), Differential Thermogravimetric Analyzer (DTG) etc. worth is 1.5 crores rupees. The instrumentation facilities are available for the students' research scholar, a teacher from collages, but it also available for other collage, industries in the minimum charge. Through this CIC center we also provided soil and of their filed soil testing to the farmer on concession basic. Every year we conduct Hand-on training on instrumentation to PG chemistry students and also faculty.
