The Research Centre in Chemistry under Mahatma Gandhi University was initiated in 2012. The thrust areas of research are natural rubber composites, nanomaterials, conducting polymers, polymer composites, conducting polymer composites, sono photo catalytic degradation of water pollutants, phytochemical analysis in ethno medicines, organometallic frameworks, inorganic metal complexes, nano drug delivery etc.
The P.G department and research centre of the Department of Chemistry has given major contribution to the field of polymers, and has now started work in the field of nanotechnology. There are 4 research scholars working in the department and the faculty presently working in the department has published around 95 research papers, most of them in reputed international journal. 3 major research projects (Funded by UGC & KSCSTE) & 5 minor research projects are completed in the department.
