Inorganic and Physical Chemistry
The Inorganic and Physical Chemistry (IPC) department is
one of the most prestigious departments at the Indian Institute of Science
and is devoted to advanced research and teaching in chemistry. Since its
inception in 1909, the department has distinguished itself as a Centre for
innovative and pioneering research in a wide range of areas in inorganic
and physical chemistry. It was elevated to the status of a UGC Centre of
Advanced Study in 1980 in recognition to its achievements in these fields
and recently to the status of DST-FIST Sponsored Department. The
major research efforts are focussed on such areas as molecular structure
and dynamics, laser spectroscopy, organometallic and coordination chemistry,
bioinorganic and biomimetic chemistry, energy systems, catalysis, polymers and
