22nd -23rd, March, 2019
DEPARTMENT OF CHEMISTRY
The Gandhigram Rural Institute
(Deemed to be University, Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), GoI)
Re-Accredited by NAAC with 'A' Grade (3rd cycle)
Gandhigram - 624 302, Tamilnadu.
About the Institute
The Gandhigram was started in the year 1947 by Dr. G. Ramachandran and Dr. T. S. Soundram, who spent major part of their life with Gandhiji during freedom fighting. The Gandhigram Rural Institute is the only one which survives among eleven rural institutes started under Ministry of Education, Government of India.
The Gandhigram Rural Institute is fully funded by MHRD, Govt. of India and is quite active on both campus and in rural areas of the surroundings. Besides, its contribution to teaching and research, the institute applies the experience from both scientific and social researech to solve contemporary rural problems. The three dimensional approach of teaching, research and extension has won national recognition and the status of Deemed to be University in 1976. The Institute was accredited with five stars by NAAC in 2002 and reaccredited with ‘A’ Grade in 2nd and 3rd cycles. It is also graded as ‘A’ - grade Deemed to be University by MHRD, Govt. of India.
About the Department
The Department of Chemistry was established in the year 1965. The Department offers B.Sc. and M.Sc. Programmes under CBCS besides M. Phil. and Ph.D. Programmes. The thrust areas of research are Synthetic Organic Chemistry, Corrosion Inhibitors, Surface Protection Strategies, Water Chemistry, Environmental Chemistry, Coordination Chemistry, Electrochemistry, Nano-materials, Biosensors, Conducting Polymers, Porphyrin Chemistry and Supramolecular Chemistry. The Department is additionally funded by DST-FIST and UGC-SAP Programmes. The Department has also undertaken many research projects funded by various funding agencies. The faculty members of this Department have published over 775 Research papers in peer reviewed journals. More than 110 scholars have been awarded doctoral degrees from this department.
This workshop aims at disseminating knowledge through invited lectures by eminent scientists and hands on training by experienced technocrats in the domain of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy. It will provide a platform for Academicians, Researchers and Student Community to enrich their expertise in Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy and its Applications.
The workshop will focus on the research trends in the following areas:
- NMR Spectroscopy of Biomolecules
- Solid State NMR Methods for Complex Organic Molecules
- 1D and 2D NMR Spectroscopy Techniques
- NMR Instrumentation
- Hands on Training
