|(i)The MDS University was established on 1st August 1987 and the Department of Pure and Applied Chemistry saw its inception on 19th April 1994 with Dr. Rita Mehra, present Head of Department as its Founder Member and First Lady Faculty of MDS University Ajmer. With the aim and vision of the University to begin with job-oriented courses, the first Post-Graduate Programme offered by the Department was of M.Sc. Applied Chemistry. Thereafter in 2000, P.G. Programme in M.Sc. Chemistry was commenced. Both the course, earlier run in Annual Scheme are presentrly run in Semester Scheme of Examination having four semesters in each. The contents of the courses are based on theoretical and practical aspects in the subject and equip the students with apt knowledge of the subject w.r.t. NET, SET and other competitive examinations as well as for acquiring jobs in the industries. The research thrust areas of the Department at present are Biomonitoring of Metals and Acoustic Studies of Chemical and Biochemical Systems. The published research work in these fields has won international recognition. It is further hoped that the world over the Department might become known as an active Centre for Metal Biomonitoring and Occupational Hazard Assessment researches. (ii) Facilities: Besides the usual equipments required for such post-graduate programmes in a Chemistry Laboratory, the major instruments in the Department are: (1) Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer ECIL Make, (2) Gas Chromatograph Systronics Make, (3) Anton Paar Densitometer, (4) UV-Visible Spectrophotometers Systronics make, (5) Double Beam Visible Spectrophotometers Systronics Make, (6) Digital Flame Photometers with Na, K,Ca,Li filters Systronics Make, (7) Electronic Balances upto four digit accuracy in each laboratory Citizon Make, (8) Fuel Testing Instruments- A bels and Cleaveland Flash Point Apparatus, (9) Fire Point Apparatus, (10) Red Wood Viscometer A and B, (11) Cloud Point and Pour Point Apparatus, (12) pH meters with ATC of Elico, Systronics, Toshniwal and Digital pH Meters ChinoMake, (13) Conductivity Meters with ATC Systronics, Chino and Rescholar Make, Muffle Furnace etc. (14) The Department is also equipped with safety equipments such as Fire Extinguishers, Eye Wash Station, Fire retarding material to meet with any emergent unfortunate but accidental situations, if any. (iii) Personality Development: The method used for it is involvement of students in Extra-Curricular Activities. Student translated their ideas last year in the Department by organizing 'CHEMISM'- an Exhibition on Working Models on applications of Chemistry and Applied Chemistry, Co-curricular activity like 'CHEMISTRY OF DEVINITY', 'CHEMICA', Glimpses of Noble Laureates in Chemistry of around hundred years in 2010. Every year different such opportunities are given to students. (iv) Alumini: The alumini of the Department found good placements in Industries and Private Institutions viz.
