Department of Chemistry

The Department of Chemistry is one of the first to function after IIT Madras was founded in 1959. Since then, the faculty has set up three different research centres for nanoscience, catalysis research as well as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and spectroscopy. Today, the department stands among the best in India for teaching and research, and is well recognized across the world through its Alumni. Several alumni have excelled in their chosen professions and many have been recognised by IIT Madras as Distinguished Alumni.
