B.Tech in Chemical Science and Technology Courses

Course Curriculum:

Chemistry is central to the well being of the people and society. Chemistry has established itself as an integral part of natural Science and current applications of chemical science are impossible to ignore in virtually all industries. These include Petroleum, Healthcare & medicine, food and agriculture, polymer & synthetic materials, nanotechnology and others. In fact, the list is virtually endless. With a growing demand for dedicated expertise in different areas of Chemistry in industry and technology, it is understandable that industries are looking for scientists who can apply the science in developing their technology and scientists are showing inclination to hone their research to cater the technological demand of the industries.

A four year Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech) programme in Chemical Science and Technology is being proposed by the Department of Chemistry at IIT Patna from the year 2013. This program, as the name suggest, would promote Science as well as Technology involving Chemistry and other Chemistry related interdisciplinary areas. This program has been envisioned with a view to prepare human resource to be competent in both Academia and Industry. The scope of this program will extend by not limited to provide students with basic concepts of chemical science and in parallel offer adequate practical training in chemical science related engineering. This practice should enable the students to apply their theoretical concepts into a technological output whereby they can prove to be useful in industry for technology development.

The chemical science interface will develop the basic concepts of Organic, Inorganic, Physical and Biochemistry. From organic synthesis, Supramolecular chemistry to Thermodynamics and other aspects of chemistry, this part of the program will play a key role in developing the basic knowledge in chemistry along with the most updated findings in these areas. Thus, a solid academic platform for the students is foreseen with the science component of the program. Technological aspect of the program will include applied catalysis, drug design, medicinal chemistry, nanomaterials and nanoscience, fine and bulk chemicals, green chemical and technological practices.

The Department of Chemistry at IIT Patna continues to thrive to be a nationally-acclaimed model for educating and graduating students in Chemistry and related areas. We want our students to be prepared to compete in and contribute to the ever-changing, technology-centered world of the 21st century. To achieve this vision, the department is committed to providing a course of study for undergraduates in the chemical sciences and Technology which combines curriculum, high-quality teaching, innovative and intellectually challenging practical courses and employ state-of-the-art technologies.

The department of Chemistry is emerging as a strong contender in terms of achievement in chemical science and technology research with the support of a dynamic team consisting of teaching staff, non-teaching staff, project fellows and inspired research students. The continuously growing community in the department is sure to foster multi-disciplinary curriculum development to provide students with a breadth of course options in virtually all aspects of chemical science and related technology development. The students will be trained to do frontline research in interdisciplinary areas, which include materials science, environmental science and molecular biology.

Graduates from this program will have diverse job opportunities in the chemical industry, in petroleum industry including polymer and paint industry, pharmaceutical and healthcare industry, food industry, Biotechnology based industries, in environment related industries and businesses, and in Research & Development. Equally promising career in academics to pursue a research career in India and abroad seems appropriate also.

New technologies and the comfortable lifestyle enjoyed by us are provided through the applications of chemistry. Those who are deprived of the above, well being of them can be achieved through Chemical Science itself, be it a life saving drug or affordable synthetic materials for multipurpose applications. Sustainable improvement will only be achieved through public appreciation of the importance and positive aspects of chemical science and its related applications in technology in everyday life. The betterment of society covers three pillars:

  1. Environment
  2. Health and Safety
  3. Economy and Energy.
We believe, the Chemical Science and Technology program at IIT Patna will contribute significantly to all the three issues and prepare graduates who can contribute to strengthen these pillars in our country.

Application of Glycochemistry in Modern Technology

CH 708 Application of Glycochemistry in Modern Technology
3 0 0 6

Structure, reactivity and reactions: Monosaccharides, oligosaccharides and polysaccharides, anomeric effect, reaction of hydroxyl group, orthogonal protection strategy, classical and modern techniques for glycosylation.

Biosynthesis and function: Key enzymes involved in biosynthesis of glycoproteins, glycolipids and glycopeptides and biodegradation of carbohydrates, altering glycosylation (glycosyaltransferases and glycosidases).

From science to applications: Glycotechnology (Mechanistic aspect of interaction of carbohydrates with other biomolecules, glyco-engineering), carbohydrate-based drug design (modified sugars as antibiotics, anti-inflammatory etc), natural products in medicinal chemistry (Nojirimycin, swainsonine as anticancer agent, heparin as anti-coagulant), carbohydrates and immunology (antiviral, antifungal, anticancer and anti-parasitic pathogens vaccines), role of sugar in the food industry, paper industry, glycol materials (design, synthesis, and characterization of such materials, photoswitchable cluster glycosides as tools) and alternate renewable source for bio-fuels production (from carbohydrates to hydrocarbons) .
