Presently Six students are working for perusing Ph.D. degree. The thrust areas of research are Solution Chemistry, Organic Synthesis, Chemo-sensing, Heterocyclic Chemistry, Phyto-chemistry and Polymer Chemistry etc.

Our department received grants of Rs. 442000/- from UGC through minor projects and completed six minor research projects.

 Four staff members have received Fellowship under Faculty Improvement Programme form UGC, New Delhi to complete their Ph.D. degree.

The faculty of our department represented our college in the Academic Council, BOS and other academic bodies of the Kavyitri Bahinabai Chaudhari North Maharashtra University, Jalgaon. The passing percentage of our student is always more than 80%.

Recently the department has signed MOU with Vasudhara Diary (Biladi, Valsad Branch, Gujarat).

Certificate course in soil and water analysis has been carried out by our department. The Chemistry Association organized various activities for the overall development of students.

Specific objectives: To strengthen the academic and physical infrastructure for achieving excellence in teaching and training. 

To enhance the quality of the teaching and learning process to stimulate original thinking through ‘hands–on’ exposure to experimental work and participation in summer schools. •
