Central Instrumentation Lab
Make Research Feasible for all
DAV Managing Committee along with the fundings of Department of Science and Technology, Govt. of India has started an Instrumentation Lab in College Campus. In this instrumentation lab, various instruments like HPLC system, Electrochemical workstation, Inverted microscope, Gradient PCR, Gas Chromatograph, Digital Polarimeter, UV-Vis. spectroscopy, FT-IR, Ultra pure water purification (HPLC grade) and Flourescence spectroscopy are available for all institutional and industrial research purposes on payment basis.
Department of Chemistry, DAV College, Sector 10, Chandigarh was approved as research centre in 2014 by Panjab University, Chandigarh. The department has 12 permanent faculty members who are actively engaged in various research activities. Main research areas includes solution chemistry of copper (I), selenium chemistry, chemistry of beta lactams, organosilicon, organotin and metal ion sensing, etc. Presently nine research scholars are working on various fields for their Ph.D degrees. Two scholars have already submitted their thesis and one scholar had successfully defended her Ph.D viva. Post graduate students also get hands on and summer training in these research labs. The research centre has two research laboratories well equipped with various instruments and research facilities. Besides research labs, the college developed central instrumentation facility (sponsored by DST-FIST) having various high end instruments such as UV-Vis spectrophotometer, FT-IR spectrometer, Spectrofluorometer, GC, HPLC, Electrochemical workstation, etc.
HPLC System (Waters) with C-8, C-18 columns
Cyclic Voltametry, Impedance Spectroscopy, etc. with Pt-electrode and glass carbon electrode.
Perkin Elemer GC with PDA detector
Shimadzu Fluorescence Spectrometer
Motorized inverted microscope with fluorescence and make Leica
