Research

  • Research in the department of Chemistry at B.S.A. Crescent Institute aims to develop innovative solutions to the challenging problems. It aims to enhance its efforts through collaborations with leading research institutions and industry.
  • The faculty members of the department have been carrying out research even from the inception. However their research was acknowledged in 2006 when Anna University recognized it as a Research Centre. After attaining University status, it opened its wings and started its research activities in full breadth.
  • The department has received funded projects from CSIR, DST-SERB, DST-WOS-A and other agencies with a total grant amounting to 2.5 crores in the last three years. Research Scholars are pursuing their Ph.D. programmes in both full time and part time mode. Many of them have also been enrolled as Junior and Senior Research Fellows.
  • Research scholars have also obtained Rajiv Gandhi National Fellowship and fellowship from CSIR SRF (Direct).
