About
B.S.c(Chemistry)

The department of Chemistry of New Alipore College started its journey right from the inception of the college in 1963. At that time, only the erstwhile “Pre-University” course and B.Sc (Pass) course were taught in the college. Affiliation to Honours course was obtained in 1969.

At present the Department consists of eight full time faculty members and the teaching-learning methods employed are in the form of classroom lectures, audio-visual mode using power point presentation as well as practical classes. The theoretical papers in the UG course consist of different specialized segments of Chemistry such as, Organic, Inorganic, Physical Chemistry, Biochemistry, Computational and Analytical Chemistry. The Department has also initiated to the emphasise advanced level courses like Mathematics and Statistics for Chemists, Analytical Clinical Biochemistry, Pharmaceuticals Chemistry etc. as an integrated part of Skill Enhancement Course of the new CBCS curriculum of University of Calcutta. Department also offers different practical course such as Inorganic Qualitative and Quantitative Analysis, Inorganic Synthesis, Organic Qualitative and Synthesis, Physical Chemistry Experiments, Biochemistry and Analytical Practical, Instrumental Methods of Analysis and Computer Programming & its application to Chemistry. The department organizes National level Seminars & ‘Scientific Lectures', every year, where renowned scientists from different parts of India and abroad participate and deliver scientific lectures to inspire the students and expose them to contemporary research.

We believe in all round development of the students’ beyond the classroom teaching. For better understanding of practical applications of theory department organises Industrial visits and Educational Tour for our students where they earn some fresh idea about industrial activities and environment.
