The Indian Institute of Science Education and Research - Kolkata was founded in 2006 by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), Government of India and one of the first departments to be established was the Department of Chemical Sciences (DCS). From the beginning, the Department has incarnated the Institute's mission of excellence in both research and teaching. The DCS has appreciable strength in the core areas of physical, organic and inorganic chemistry as well as in interdisciplinary research areas at the boundaries with physics, biology, earth science and materials science. An extremely wide range of state-of-the-art instrumentations are available in different research groups to carry out the DCS research activity.   Read more>>
