About the Seminar:

The Department of Chemistry was initiated in 1926. Prof. T. R. Anantharaman was the founder Professor and Head of the Department (1926 – 1962). The chemistry department started functioning in the Kacherimaliga which was used for conducting the lectures and practical classes. The B.Sc course in Chemistry was started in 1953 and the department moved to the present building in 1969 under the able leadership of Dr. A. M. Chacko. The PG course was started in 1982. Owing to the untiring efforts of the eminent faculty, the research activities gradually increased, and the department attained formidable reputation in the national scene as one of the finest schools of chemistry for graduation.
