School of Chemistry is a dynamic center for research at the frontiers of chemical sciences. The emphasis at the curricular level is to give a broad coverage of all branches of chemistry in keeping with the interdisciplinary nature of the subject today. The School has established itself as one of the leading centers in the country for education and research in chemical sciences. It offers fundamental and advanced courses covering the wide gamut of topics in chemistry and closely related areas, and comprehensive research training to nurture future scientists, teachers, and technical professionals in the field. The high quality advanced research pursued by the faculty members of the School supplement and complement the teaching and training of undergraduate, post-graduate and Ph.D. students and postdoctoral researchers.  
The School has made notable impact on the chemical research scene and is widely acclaimed at the national and international levels. It receives support from a large number of research grants from funding agencies like the Department of Science and Technology (DST) and the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), New Delhi, international collaborative projects and industrial projects. The School has been identified by the DST for support under the new FIST programme at Level II. The University Grants Commission (UGC), New Delhi has selected the School of Chemistry as a Centre for Advanced Studies (Phase III) under the Special Assistance Programme. A Networking Resource Center established in the School through dedicated funding from the UGC, operates various outreach programs to promote chemical education and research at the undergraduate and postgraduate level in colleges and Universities across the nation; this is the only such Center in Chemistry in the country.  
Members of the School faculty have won recognition in the form of prestigious awards and fellowships of the various academic bodies both within and outside the country. Our masters students do well in national level competitive examinations and several of them go on to pursue a research career. Many of our alumni occupy important positions in the academia and industry in India as well as abroad. 

The University of Hyderabad, a premier institution of post graduate teaching and research in the country, was established by an Act of Parliament on 2nd October, 1974 as a Central University, wholly financed by the University Grants Commission. "Objects of the University" as envisaged in the Act are "to disseminate and advance knowledge by providing instructional and research facilities in such branches of learning as it may deem fit and by the example of its corporate life, and in particular to make special provisions for integrated courses in humanities and science in the educational programmes of the University and to take appropriate measures for promoting inter-disciplinary studies and research in the University."
