Syllabus for M.Sc Chemistry 

M.Sc Chemistry Syllabus – M.Sc. Chemistry or Master of Science in Chemistry is a Postgraduate Degree course.  The duration of the course is 2 years (4 semesters). Chemistry is the science of matter and the changes effected by it. As the science of matter is also a part of the discipline of physics but physics takes a more general and fundamental approach whereas chemistry is more specialized and is concerned with the composition, behaviour, structure, and properties of matter. It is a matter of changes it undergoes during chemical reactions. 

To pursue M.Sc in Chemistry, students should be Graduate in the relevant field with minimum 50% marks from a recognized university.
