DEPARTMENT OF PHARMACEUTICAL CHEMISTRY

“Imagining, Discovering and Analysing New Drug Entities”

ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT

Since inception in 2002, the Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry is involved in delivering the academic and industrial needs pertaining to pharmaceuticals. The key task of the department is to provide knowledge in pharmaceuticals chemistry of drugs/medicines which is constantly offering first-rate opportunities to students against high quality educational experience. The department offers a M. Pharm. course in Pharmaceutical Chemistry jointly based on Medicinal Chemistry and Drug Analysis. The department endows wide opportunity to students and teaching staff to learn and analyse using sophisticated analytical Instruments like UHPLC, HPLC, HPTLC, GC, FT-IR and UV/Vis-Spectrophotometer independently during academic curriculum and ancillary research projects. Department is honoured with Research Grant of more than Rs. 1.20 Cr; International Travel Grant of 6.22 Lakhs and grants to arrange National conferences as well as workshops, sponsored from funding agencies of national repute such as AICTE, DST-SERB, UGC, ICMR, KBCNMU, Jalgaon etc. The faculties of department are regularly motivated to participate in the National and International conferences/workshops/meetings. Till date the professors visited the USA, France, Switzerland and Dubai. Department quality of research can be assess with its ever growing list of National/International publications (more than 600 research papers) of repute with Citations more than 3786. The H–index of research by faculties accomplished more than 120 and total Impact factor is 480. Faculties authored more than 16 books and witnessed their constant presence in the consultancy services pertaining to,

  • Development and Validation of Analytical  and  Bioanalytical Methods
  • Stability Studies of  Drugs and Impurity Profiling
  • Synthesis and biological evaluation of new chemical entities as antidiabetic, anticancer anti-inflammatory, anticonvulsant, anti- microbial.
  • Synthesis of Pro-drugs and biological evaluation.
