The department has the following laboratories under its aegis: Engineering Chemistry (2 laboratories) and Environmental Engineering (1 laboratory) in which various samples of lubricants, fuel and water can be analysed respectively. Lubricant analysis includes flash and fire point determination, viscosity determination, cloud and pour point, aniline point, steam emulsification number, drop point, iodine number, saponification value, acid value/neutralisation number, penetration number. Fuel testing is performed with respect to calorific value, fixed carbon, ash content, carbon residue, volatile content and moisture content, nitrogen and sulphur estimation. Water analysis regarding determination of pH, acidity, alkalinity, TDS, TSS, hardness, chlorides, residual chlorine, DO, COD, BOD, coagulant dose, all spectrophotometric analysis, turbidity, salinity, micobiological analysis, nitrogen estimation, flame photometric determination of Na/K.
Diversity of chemical substances enriches our lives. The stage for chemists to develop new substances, clarify their chemical phenomena and also to protect the natural environment is becoming increasingly broad. The aim of the Department of Applied Chemistry is to develop researchers and engineers who possess solid, fundamental capacities for science and a broad perspective for social application.
