The IPC Scholars Fund has been created to support academic activities at the Department of Inorganic and Physical Chemistry. 

The fund will be used to support PhD students at IPC for academic activities, including traveling to conferences abroad. 

Contributions to the fund can be made by any donor who wishes to support all academic initiatives at IPC, to provide additional financial support to the students when needed and facilitate teaching and research activities.

The inaugural contribution to the fund was made by Prof Ramakrishnan Subramaniam and his students in January 2024. 


About Department of Inorganic and Physical Chemistry

The Department of Inorganic and Physical Chemistry was born more than a century ago in 1909, as  ‘The Department of General and Applied Chemistry’. The IPC Department has grown in many ways with the Institute, with focus on both fundamental and applied research in the broad areas of physical and inorganic chemistry. Currently, there are around 20 faculty members working in rich and diverse areas of chemistry including molecular spectroscopy, chemical dynamics, analytical and computational theory, electrochemistry, polymer chemistry, transition metal and non-metal chemistry, bioinorganic and biophysical chemistry, and functional materials.
