Since the inception of the college, the Chemistry Department has been always proving to be one of the strong organs of the college and it is striving hard to uplift the prestige of the college. It was started with four Doctorates 42 years back and at no time, the number of Doctorates in the department has come below this level. Presently, NINE Doctorates are working. So far, the Research publications of the teachers who worked/working in our department is above 240 and the expertise behind these Research publications is manifested in the development of this department.
Besides enriching the students with the applied aspects of Chemistry such as Engineering Chemistry, Environmental Chemistry, and Analytical Instrumentation for Electronics and Instrumentation students etc., and providing sound fundamental applied basis for Chemical Engineering students. The department has started M.Sc. Chemistry course with specialization in Organic Chemistry in 1997 with an intake of 24 students. In 2002-2003 academic year the strength of the students has been increased to 30 due to our good performance. The department has got an opportunity to run the M.Sc. Analytical Chemistry from the academic year 2011-12 onwards.
Some of the students showed remarkable performance in National level tests viz., NET, GATE and in the local University. Further our Chemistry Department has been recognized for conducting research works viz, M.Phil, and Ph.D by Acharaya Nagarjuna University and also some of our department staff members are guiding Research students. Under “External Registration Stream” of JNTU, Hyderabad and some of our junior staff members are working in part-time for their Ph.D in our well-furnished chemical labs.
The department has four well-furnished and equipped labs having total plinth areas: 719 Sq. m. We have a separate room for modern instruments, which are being used for conducting different types of analysis. At present the department has 12 teaching staff members.
The Department is undertaking consultancy work assessing the physico-chemical parameters of various samples of different origin. In fact we are the consultants for prawn cultivation, which is widely being spread, around our locality i.e. from Nizampatnam to Nellore. The department has the distinction of “Publishing Research Papers” from the college and thereby enshrining the college name in the eternal and everlasting words of Journals.

To provide broad curriculum withstrong foundation in fundamentals of Chemistry through courses offered by the Department for Science and Engineering Students in the Institutewith the aim of producing chemists and engineers with high professional competence with awareness on the importance of chemistry in the technological world and to carry out research and to make students to become good scientists.
To promote, inspire and nurture the fundamentals of chemistry through UG and PG courses offered for the basic sciences, applied sciences(engineering) students.
To develop research facilities, equipment and laboratories that would enable modern approach and solutions to all problems in chemistry and chemical industry, collaborative projects with other science and engineering departments.
To offer research projects with high emphasis on concept-theory-practical training to build up research interest for the transformation of budding chemists into productive scientists, excellent teachers, entrepreneurs and innovative independent researchers.
Our specific goal is to become a nationally recognizedcenter of chemical sciences for modern education with a state of art centralized research facility.
