Chemistry Research Laboratory

1. Engineering Chemistry Laboratory

The engineering chemistry laboratory is well equipped with high-end instruments, well aerated and spacious hall of floor area 200 square meters. It is provided with store room for safe keeping of explosive, corrosive chemicals and a room exclusively for preparation of reagents for experiments. Each working table is big enough to accommodate necessary glass wares and to carry out experiments. Separate heating chamber is provided as a safety measure.

Lab is a required component of most engineering courses. Learning about the lab procedures and performing experiments helps to learn techniques and reinforces text book concepts that students of engineering must master for application in career and daily life. The faculty of the chemistry at BNMIT clearly understand the importance of laboratory work in the study of chemistry and committed to educate the students in lab skill. The experiments prescribed by VTU have been optimised so that each and every student can conduct experiments independently.

2. Research Laboratory

The Department provides research facilities to the staff members and research scholars for carrying out their research activities.
The Chemistry research lab is sufficiently equipped with the latest instruments. Department is actively engaged in research, the main areas of research being Pharmaceutics, Corrosion, Material Chemistry & Medicinal Chemistry.
