Fields of research currently conducting at the department are fundamental and applied researches in organic chemistry, inorganic chemistry, food science, cosmetic technology and environment science.
This module covers a broad sense on Hydrolysis, Esterification and Oxidation. Hydrolysis: Definition and Scope, Hydrolyzing Agents, Materials Susceptible to Hydrolysis, Equipment for Hydrolysis, and Technical Operations Involving Hydrolysis; Esterification: Esterification by Organic Acids, Esterification of Carboxylic Acid Derivatives, Esters by Addition to Unsaturated Systems, Esters of Inorganic Acids, and Esterification Practice; Oxidation: Types of Oxidative Reactions, Oxidizing Agents, Liquid Phase Oxidation with Oxidizing Compounds, Vapour Phase Oxidation of Aliphatic Compounds, Vapour Phase Oxidation of Aromatic Hydrocarbons, and Apparatus for Oxidation.
This module covers 1) Nitration: Introduction, Nitrating Agents, Aromatic Nitration, Kinetics and Mechanism of Aromatic Nitration, Nitration of Paraffinic Hydrocarbons, Nitrate Esters, N-Nitro Compounds, Thermodynamics of Nitrations, Process Equipment for Technical Nitration, Mixed Acid for Nitrations, Typical Industrial Nitration Processes and 2) Sulfonation and Sulfation.
The module is designed to learn about Chemical Reaction Engineering; Reactor Design- Introduction to Reactor Design, Single Ideal Reactors; Heat Effects; and Flow Behaviour of Reactor.
In the first semester, students will learn IC 5206 that includes the Characteristics of Bio-Products and Lipid Biosynthesis. In the second semester, students will learn IC 5212 that covers Food and Enzymes Produced by Microorganisms and Fermentation and Other uses of Microorganisms.
