SCIENCE AND HUMANITIES

Faculty of Chemistry

The Department has a well equipped and spacious Chemistry laboratory to perform all the experiments prescribed by Anna University of Technology ? Chennai and builds a strong foundation in modern analytical techniques in the budding engineers.

The salient features of the laboratory are

  • Vital parameters like alkalinity, chloride ion, dissolved oxygen and hardness can accurately be determined by volumetric analysis.
  • Ostwald viscometer is used to determine the molecular weight of polymers like PVA, PVC and styrene
  • PH meter is used to determine the strength of HCl
  • Conductometer is used to estimate the amount of strong acid (HCl) and strong base (NaOH) by quantitative methods.
  • Conductometer is used for the analysis of colored solutions such as CuSO4 , FeSO4 by volumetric analysis.
  • Potentiometer is used to estimate the amount of Fe2+ ions quantitatively.
  • Potentiometer is used for the analysis of colored solutions such as CuSO4 , FeSO4 by volumetric analysis.
  • Electric hot air oven is used for dehydration and also utilized to study the properties of chemical substances.
