BSc Chemistry

Main papers of BSc Chemistry:

  • Organic Chemistry
  • Inorganic Chemistry
  • Physical Chemistry

Organic Chemistry: Its the study carbon-based compounds, mainly hydrocarbons and other compounds such as nitrogen, oxygen, halogens, phosphorus, silicon, and sulfur in terms of their structure, compositions,properties, reactions and preparations.

Inorganic Chemistry : Its the study of all chemical compounds except Carbon-based organic compounds which are of non-biological in nature including metals, salts and minerals and the various kinds of reaction which happens between the inorganic compounds.

Physical Chemistry: Its the study of the physical structure of chemical substances and processes,behavior of matter at an atomic and molecular level.
