Brief Profile of the Department

The Chemistry Department was introduced as P.G. Centre of Calcutta University from 1976 with M. Sc. student intake capacity of 16 to fulfill the demand of the students of Tripura State. First of all only the Analytical Chemistry specialization was introduced in M.Sc. Part-II course. In due course, the P.G. Centre (Chemistry Department) of Calcutta University became the full-fledged Department of Tripura University from 2nd October, 1987. With the recruitment of faculty members in Chemistry Department, the Department started three special papers viz. Inorganic, Organic and Physical chemistry in M.Sc. Part-II. The state funded Tripura University was converted in to Central University w.e.f. 2nd July, 2007 and the Department of Chemistry has got new dimensions of expansion.
