Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry

“Imagining, Discovering and Analysing New Drug Entities”

Since its inception in 2002, Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry is involved in catering the needs of various pharmaceutical industries and institutions.

Objectives:

  1. To provide knowledge of pharmaceutical chemistry about physicochemical properties of chemical entities, their reactions and mechanisms useful in the area of drug discovery and analysis.
  2. To incorporate competency in the area of drug discovery by providing hands-on training about operating of various updated software viz . Schrödinger, V-life.
  3. To nurture the students in the field of pharmaceutical analysis by proving expertise pertaining to sophisticated instruments viz. HPLC, HPTLC, FT-IR, GC , UV-Spectrophotometer.
  4. Finally, to position the perfectly mellow students in the pharmaceutical field.
