The Department of Chemistry was bifurcated from the erstwhile department of Chemistry and Biochemistry. The Department is well known for its excellence in teaching and research. The faculty members of the department are engaged in state of the art research with a special focus on agriculture. The Department has a vibrant and rich tradition to intense academic and basic research programmes. Right from its inception, the Department has dedicated and hard-working faculty members. The research activities of the Department continuously strive to embrace insights into development of green organic reactions methodologies, target-driven synthesis of natural and un-natural products, nano chemistry, agriculture waste management,environmental remediation, phytochemistry, traversing through interfacial areas of chemical, biological and materials significance. Ever since, the Department improvises regularly the pursuit surrounding the theme. With this input the department is marching forward in newer areas of research and teaching.

Message from Head

It is my pleasure to extend my warmest welcome on behalf of my colleagues, to all prospective students, researchers, adult learners, alumni, colleagues and friends, to the official website of the Department of Chemistry at the CCSHAU, Hisar. Our department offers a rich variety of opportunities and resources and we are committed to pursue excellence in chemical education and research. Our postgraduate program provides opportunity to students in a wide array of chemistry disciplines including analytical, environmental, inorganic, materials, organic and physical chemistry. We offer students the freedom to personalize their courses and research projects in an interdisciplinary manner.

We are committed to provide top quality education and nurture the next generation of scholars and leaders in chemical sciences and beyond. We are well-equipped with splendid modern research laboratories, along with the state-of-the-art facilities, and awe-inspiring infrastructures. Our diverse faculty, which adds vitality to our department are actively exploring many emerging areas in the chemical sciences related to agriculture, and involved in world-class research funded with ICAR and other funding agencies. The faculty have published profuse scientific publications in journals of national and international repute.

Awards and Recognitions

Dr. I. S. Sheoran was awarded Hari Om Ashram award for team research, Rafi Ahmed Kidwai award and NAAS Fellow : -

Infrastructural Development

  • The department has a Botanical Garden spread over an area of 10.5 acres with rich biodiversity. The department has done pioneering work in conserving the indigenour local species of plant and also introduction of exotic specis (approximately 600) from other places. Various native and exotic trees, shurbs, herbs, climbers, aquatic plants, cacti and succulents have been collected and maintained for imparting knowledge to our students as well as related scientists. Flower shows are organized from time to time.
  • The department has 9 screening houses near the college building.
  • The department has developed 20 salinity micro plots to determine phyto-remediating potential of halophytic flora and 24 lysimeter have been installed in field to determine the transpirational potential of trees having importannce in bio-drainage.
  • Experimental farms spread over 25 acres have been developed to evaluate bio-drainage potential of trees to improve waterlogged soils.

Package and Practices

system having Eucalyptus tereticornis as a strip plantation should be established on the water logged soils. In this model north to south field boundary is converted into 2.6 m wide and 45 cm high raised bund on which two rows of trees can be planted. The intervening space is left for the crops with minimum of shade effect due to the north-south direction of bunds� initiated by Drs. O.P. Toky, Rajiv Angrish and J.C. Kaushik included in the HAU Package of Practices.
