Solid State & Structural Chemistry Unit
Solid State & Structural Chemistry
The Solid State and Structural Chemistry Unit was founded in November 1976 by Bharat Ratna Professor C. N. R. Rao. The unit has provided major thrust to frontier areas of chemistry. Besides developing its own research and teaching programs, unit members interact closely with other departments of the institute. The unit is a premier research center of global repute in the areas of solid state and physical chemistry. Our faculty and students work on inter-disciplinary research topics at the intersection of physics, chemistry and materials science.
