About the Department

The history of the Department of Chemistry at S.H.D. College dates back to 1980. It started with a general undergraduate degree course along with other science departments under the University of Calcutta. The department offers three year undergraduate (UG) general degree courses with combinations of physics and mathematics or with botany and zoology. Class sizes are small providing a good bond for faculty-student communication and academic flexibility. Faculty members are engaged with the modern research theme of chemistry and students are always welcome for their curiosity about modern chemistry.

Scope of the subject

  • Teaching job (SSC)
  • Banking
  • Miscellaneous job (State and Central Govt.) 
  • Chemical Company 
  • Administrative job
  • Research career (After master's degree)

SWOC analysis of the department


  • Quality Teachers in the department
  • Good inter personal relationship
  • Good teacher student relationship
  • Good innovative culture
  • Strong research culture of faculty
  • Adequate laboratory facility


  • Lack of students in the department


  • The revised syllabus and number distribution are more student friendly and it assists the students to go for a better career opportunity
  • Individual care is taken due to the limited number of students in the department


  • Communication problem
  • Insufficient feeder School, where a science stream is absent.


Future plan

  1. To visit different research laboratories for a growth of interest in the subject and a better understanding of the same.
  2. To renovate the present laboratory to a research oriented one.

Seminar topic




Chemistry in Daily Life


Dr. BappadityaNaskar


Effects of Arsenic on Human Body


Dr. Sanjay Kumar Mandal


  1. On September 22, 2015, a departmental seminar was successfully held. The topic of the session was "Chemistry in Daily Life". The conference's major goal was to inspire the students to learn the fundamentals of everyday household items including toothpaste, detergent, medications, and LPG.

In the seminar, mechanisms that clearly demonstrated what detergent is and how it cleans dirty clothes were used. In the seminar, there was also discussion of the issue of "soft drinks." The health implications of soft drink ingredients were elegantly illustrated by the speaker.

One of the cool drinks during the summer is glucose solution. The presentation did a good job of explaining what Glucon-D is and how long the solution can be stored. The seminar was concluded with thanks to the Principal and other dignitaries, and the audience for their presence, patience, and nice-cooperation throughout the seminar.


2. The seminar entitled "Effects of Arsenic on Human Body" was successfully organized on dated 27.11.2015. The main aim of this seminar was to raise awareness about the fact that long-term exposure to high levels of arsenic is associated with higher rates of skin cancer, bladder cancer, lung cancer, and heart disease.

Water that comes from privately owned wells may contain higher levels of arsenic, especially in areas where the groundwater flows over arsenic-rich bedrock.

Inorganic arsenic is a human carcinogen, the World Health Organization (WHO) set a standard of no more than 10 µg L-1 of arsenic in drinking water, but 50 µgL-1 is the maximum contaminated level (MCL) considered acceptable in India.

The seminar ended with thanks to the principal, other delegates, and audience for their cooperation throughout the seminar.
