Drugs are chemicals. About 98% of the drugs are organic compounds. Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry deals with the study of chemistry of drugs- both organic and inorganic. Students are taught advanced organic chemistry, chemistry of drugs (medicinal chemistry) and computational chemistry. Students will undergo theory and practical classes. In organic chemistry students will study pure and applied organic chemistry. In medicinal chemistry students have to study synthesis of drugs, drugs used for the treatment of different diseases, molecular mechanism of drug action and modern tools for drug design. We have well equipped labs for medicinal chemistry and organic chemistry.
Department of Pharmaceutical Analysis is focusing on quality assurance and quality control of drugs. Students have to study different types of titrations, UV spectroscopy, IR spectroscopy, NMR spectroscopy, mass spectroscopy, HPLC, HPTLC etc. Our instrumentation lab occupies HPLC, UV spectrophotometer, pH meters, Flame Photometer etc.
