HOD Desk:

The Pharma Industry today, is knowledge intensive, undergoing rapid changes and is key outsourcing hub in Globalization. Since inception in 2004, the Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry is involved in delivering the academic and industrial needs pertaining to pharmaceuticals. The key task of the department is to provide knowledge in pharmaceuticals chemistry of drugs/medicines which is constantly offering first-rate opportunities to students against high quality educational experience.

We are fortunate to be centre of choice for most of the stakeholders in this region. Department has experienced and committed faculty members with vast research experience. We ensure that students are abreast with latest technologies through our regular teaching learning process and additional enrichment programs. Department rigorously follows Outcome Based Education in their teaching learning process. Use of ICT tools for the students actually improve confidence of the students in the respecting subject to understand.

I extend my best wishes for their bright future. SCPER is committed to uphold high standards of Technical Education.

Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry & Quality Assurance

Pharmaceutical Chemistry & Quality Assurance laboratories are meant to inculcate the chemical & analytical aspects of drug molecules starting from basic organic chemistry to drug design, synthesis of new drugs and analysis of drug molecules in formulation. At the under graduate level various subjects are studied in a systematic manner including, basic and advances in organic and inorganic chemistry, chain reaction of drugs, structure activity relationships (SAR), synthesis of drugs & drug intermediates and excipients on lab scale and analysis of drugs.

Students are trained to determine the extent of purity of raw materials and drugs in pharmaceutical dosage forms using highly sophisticated instruments. As well as they are trained in various analytical techniques & validation and documentation procedures as per the regulatory norms. In this way skill development of student is facilitated so that they can efficiently exert duties responsibly in Research and Development, Quality Assurance and Quality Control department of Pharmaceutical Industry.

The faculty of the department is competent and qualified. The Department imparts training in various disciplines such as Pharmaceutical Analysis, Medicinal Chemistry, Pharmaceutical Organic Chemistry and Pharmaceutical Inorganic Chemistry.

Department is enriched with various equipments required for UG Course and research. The department has conducive ambiance for study and research. The faculty of this department is encouraged and motivated to participate in National and International conferences /seminars and workshops. Besides faculty are actively involved in publishing research papers in National and International reputed journal of high impact value. The department provides adequate facilities to carry out research work.

The department has received the research grant of Rs. 55, 85,000/- to carry out research in different aspects of Pharmaceutical Chemistry from SPPU, Pune and Central Government. Moreover the faculty has submitted research projects on various aspects of Pharmaceutical Chemistry to SERB. Recently the department is enriched with the addition of PROMINENCE-i HPLC SYSTEM LC-2030C 3D with auto-sampler and Microwave synthesizer through DST-FIST 2015 scheme.

The department is also very keen about the performance and technical knowhow of supportive the staff. Moreover all the technical staffs are frequently imparted in-house training to enhance their performance and confidence.

The college renders services to other institutes to carry out research work with affordable charges. The department is poised to develop linkages and tie ups to other institutes to carry out frontline research.

The department gives emphasis on modification and simplification of various procedures to incorporate the practices of green chemistry in order to minimize the use of chemicals and avoid the hazardous effects. By and large, the department is making concerted efforts in pursuit of excellence and quality sustenance.
