Chemistry

 

Chemistry Honurs (UG) course deals with the study of chemical changes of matter. It focuses on chemical transformations, recognisation at both macro and microscopic levels. It provides an excellent opportunity to students and learners to explore the chemical universe around us and to understand the logic and principles behind fascinating changes taking place at all levels in the molecular world. The subject demands a sharp analytical mind and a certain amount of curiosity from the learners’ part. The course is divided into three main sections namely : Physical, Inorganic and Organic Chemistry, but eight papers altogether. Almost 40% of the course comprises practical classes where the students get the opportunity to verify chemical principles learned in the classroom through hands–on experiments. The key concepts discussed are : Physical Chemistry, Thermodynamics, Statistical Thermodynamics, Chemical Kinetics, Kinetic Theory of Gases, Quantum Mechanics, Electrochemistry, Phase Rules, Spectroscopy, and Photochemistry; Inorganic Chemistry : Chemical Bonding and Periodicity, Elemental Chemistry, Complex Chemistry, Redox Chemistry, Crystal Field Theory, Bioinorganic Chemistry, Organometallics; Organic Chemistry : Bonding in Organic Molecules, Organic Reactions and their Mechanisms, Stereochemistry, Functional Group Chemistry, Organic Synthesis, Heterocyclic Chemistry Organic Spectroscopy. There are ample opportunities of higher studies after completion of this course and the job prospect is also excellent.
