About The Department

The department of chemistry started functioning in 1964.Chemistry major in the under graduate level was introduced in 1968 only in Tamil Medium. Parallel English medium was introduced in 1971. The sanctioned strength in English Medium is 36 and in Tamil medium are 30. We offer allied chemistry for physics, Botany, Zoology and Biochemistry (English and Tamil medium). In total we have 270 students in allied chemistry classes.

We have started M.Sc Chemistry in 1998 with student strength of 10. We got a sanction of Rs.1.75lakhs towards setting up M.Sc lab. An additional fund of Rs.1.50 Lakhs was sanctioned by Government of Tamil Nadu under Women’s higher education policy. Now the class strength has been revised to 12.
