Pharmaceutical chemistry is interdisciplinary science that deals with the designing, synthesis, identification, developing and analyzing New Chemical Entity (NCE). This study helps to understand mechanism of action of drug at molecular level. Modern approaches like quantitative structure activity relationship, computer aided drug design, UV spectroscopy, Infrared spectroscopy etc. are used to study the chemical nature of drugs. The students are well prepared with the application of modern information and scientific technologies in drug development safety and efficacy studies. The department is well equipped with necessary apparatus and instruments in different chemical aspect of drugs like physical, analytical, organic, inorganic, biochemical, medicinal etc. There are well equipped laboratories for undergraduate students. Well qualified and experienced staff is the highlight of this department.

The Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry has ability to provide an intensive training to students and mentor them to enhance their knowledge on analytical method development and validation for combination of new drug molecules with the support of analytical instruments. The Department is most expensive laboratories with conventional instruments like HPLC, FTIR, UV-Visible Spectrophotometer, Digital balance, Turbidimeter, Conductivity meter and PH meter for quantification of API and different pharmaceutical formulation.

Research Interest:
Drug Design, QSAR study, Synthesis of different drugs, Analytical method development and validation of different drugs etc.
