The Department of Chemistry offers General/ Pass course in the subject in addition to the AEC and the SEC courses as prescribed by the University of Gour Banga.
The department promotes and encourages a hands-on approach in disseminating scientific knowledge among young learners.
Course Structure: Chemistry (General)
In addition to Compulsory courses (Language Cores and Ability Enhancement Compulsory Courses) a student has to select two disciplines as main disciplines (E.g., Discipline -A & Discipline-B) and one discipline as Generic Elective (GE)(Discipline-C).
At the end of each semester, students are evaluated on a total of 50 marks for EACH PAPER (Internal Assessment = 10; Tutorial = 08; End Semester Exam = 32).

1. The study about the structure of an atoms and some important laws (Sommerfeld’s model, Bohr’smodel etc.
2. Understand that elements are placed on the periodic table due to similar properties.
3. Understand the concept of acid and base related some theory and Redox reactions.
4. Define the chemical bond and the cause of chemical bonding. Explain different types of bonds formed by the atoms. Draw the shapes, geometries, bonding and magnetic properties of various molecules by using VSEPR Theory and MO theory.
5. Comparative study of p-block elements, d-block element.
6. To study about Coordination chemistry (Warner Theory and Crystal Field Theory).
1. Students will gain an understanding of the hybridization and geometry of atoms and the three-dimensional structure of organic molecules. the reactivity and stability of an organic molecule based on structure, including conformation and stereochemistry.
2. Identify the different types of aliphatic hydrocarbons and Aromatic Hydrocarbon. Recognize the basic properties (structure, physical and chemical properties) of alkanes, alkenes, alkynes and benzene.
3. Functional group approach for the following reactions(preparations &reaction) to be studies in context to their structures.
a) Haloalkanes & haloarenes
b) Alcohols,Phenol & Ethers
c) Carbonyl Compounds
d) Carboxylic Acids
e) Amines and Diazonium Salts
4. To study about proteins and carbohydrates.
1. Students will be able to apply knowledge learned in other courses to solve a chemical problem.
2. Students will be able to apply knowledge learned in other courses to explain a chemical concept
3. Students will demonstrate the fundamental concepts of chemistry as appropriate:
a. critical thinking and analysis skills to solve complex chemical problems, e.g., analysis of data, chemical synthesis, spectroscopy, structure and modeling, team-based problem solving.
b. conducting experiments with mastery of appropriate techniques and proficiency using core chemical instrumentation and modeling methods.
4. Students will demonstrate laboratory skills in chemistry, including proper laboratory notebook and record keeping skills, recognizing hazards, minimizing risks, and safe laboratory practices.
5. The study of physical chemistry is important because it is one of the most fundamental sciences that helps us understand how nature works. It also enables chemists to develop new types of materials for use in products, such as plastics and medicines.
