Mithibai College was established by Shri Vile Parle Kelavani Mandal in 1961, with Department of Chemistry as one of the largest departments having 28 to 29 staff members at the time. Since beginning the department of Chemistry has been providing with undergraduate course along with postgraduate courses in Physical, Inorganic and Organic Chemistry. Recently in the year 2012-2013, the department got an approval from the University of Mumbai to start with the postgraduate course in Analytical Chemistry.

Highly qualified, experienced and committed teaching faculty serves the department to hoist the budding scientists. It is their meticulous teaching that has given excellent results over the years. Many undergraduate students who opted for Chemistry got gold medal in the University examinations, is the testimony to this fact.

Also, there are co-operative non teaching staffs, who work in shifts, to cater the needs and requirements of the students.
 The students are encouraged to the best of their abilities to indulge in research work and pursue Ph.D. degree. Active research is being carried out in Organic, Inorganic and Analytical Chemistry. In the year 2012-2013, four research scholars were awarded Doctorate degree in Chemistry. All through these years, the department through its various achievers has created its indelible credibility amongst recognized institutes over the world.. Our department strives to:
  • Support creation of hub of knowledge by encouraging participation and innovation through B.Sc., M.Sc. and Ph.D. programmes.
  • To create highly competent professionals that will serve the community and the nation.
  • The Department of Chemistry endeavors to be a nationally-recognized model for educating students 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 provide a high-quality, innovative and intellectually challenging course of study.
  • Biggest, reputed department.
  • Highly qualified teaching staff.
  • Fully equipped, updated laboratories.
  • Analytical grade chemicals being used.
  • Separate research laboratory for Ph.D. students, facilitated with instruments like High performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), G. M. counter, Gamma-ray spectrometer, UV- Visible spectrophotometer, Flame photometer, etc.  
  • Well stacked, spacious library accommodating latest books and journals pertaining to chemical science.
  • Industrial training for M.Sc. (part-II) students.
  • Industrial visits.
  • Audio-visual teaching aids like overhead projectors and mike system.
  • Co-operative non-teaching staff, which cater the needs and requirements of students.
Fortunately, the applicability of a background in Chemistry is vast, resulting in myriad fields in which one may work.   The sky is the limit!  
  • A candidate who has done his /her post graduation in the subject of Chemistry can apply for the NET exam which is conducted by UGC. The successful completion and scoring in this exam can guarantee a career in academics.
  • Chemistry is involved in several industrial branches, important for the economy and employment. Due to the broadness of the scientific program, graduates, post graduates and doctors in chemistry are fit to apply for jobs in different sectors of industry and their possibilities on the job market are very diverse.


Chemists are employed by such industries as:
  • Pharmaceuticals/ Drugs
  • Mining and Metallurgy
  • Petroleum
  • Food and Beverage Production
  • Computers and Telecommunications
  • Fine and Heavy Chemical Manufacturing
  • Paint, plastics, coatings, etc.
  • Personal, baby and household care product and cosmetic
  • Pulp and paper, etc.

In these industries, the chemists’ role could be concerned with:
  • Research and Development
  • Chemical production
  • Management
  • Sales and marketing
  • Quality assurance and Quality Control
  • Manufacturing Process Control
  • Industrial Hygiene
  • Careers in clinical chemistry include jobs in hospital laboratories analyzing body tissues and fluids for diagnostic purposes, developing new analytical techniques, and pursuing fundamental research.
  • A chemist can pursue a law degree and become a patent attorney. Patent attorneys work in either a law firm or as an in-house counsel for a corporation. Patent law deals with patents, copyrights, trademarks and trade secrets.
  • State and central law enforcement organizations use chemists in their forensic laboratories. Forensic science includes many distinct disciplines that may be used in a legal investigation.
  • There are various government agencies that also hire chemists and chemical engineers.
  • Technical and Science Writing: Careers in this field include writing of technical material for industrial companies, science writer for magazines or newspapers, editor of scientific publications, etc.
