Department of Chemistry
Government College, Banswara, India
A Greener Approach to Chemical Education
The department of chemistry, Post Graduate
College, Banswara, India is actively engaged in Green Chemistry researches. Our mission is to promote
the chemical endeavor, both in advancing the science itself, and also improving the public's perception of chemistry. Our
involvement with Green Chemistry allows us to do both things at once!
We are thinking about the environmental, health and safety consequences of the products
our industries are designing and using. They are learning to consider the benefits of pollution prevention, design less-hazardous
materials, and reduce waste. The result will be a cleaner chemical industry that is more profitable. The department is working
on a number of inventions products that help explain the fundamental ideas of green chemistry, while at the same time providing
materials that can be used with students. Especially, Dr. Ramesh Menaria has been working in the field of alternative energy
to provide ultimate solution to energy crisis and pollution to safeguard the environment.
As a team,
we are continuing to work on new green chemistry projects. We currently are in
process of developing a web-based interactive teaching module on the Green Chemistry and Phtochemistry. The module is designed
for use in general chemistry courses to reinforce Green chemistry concepts, while
emphasizing the application of chemistry to real-world issues.
The module provides an opportunity to balance scientific information alongside economic
and environmental considerations. Activities within the module focus on the decision-making process, and promote critical
thinking, teamwork and communication among students. If you would like to learn more about this new online module, or are
interested in field with your students, contact Dr. Ramesh Menaria at 91-02962-241724
Here's a list of doctoral theses that have done over the past few years on education in
green chemistry, photochemistry and other fields. In past, the most of the work has been done at department of chemistry,
College of Science, Sukhadia University, and presently also GCB, DEPARTMENT OF CHEMISTRY is actively engaged in part, in cooperation
with the Chemistry Department, College of science, Sukhadia University and with financial support from the UNIVERSITY GRANTS
COMMISSION, NEW DELHI.
