Meet on ‘frontier areas’ in chemistry

MADURAI: A two-day national symposium on ‘frontier areas in chemistry’ is being organised by the American College here on January 10 and 11 as part of the golden jubilee celebrations of its Post Graduate Chemistry Department.

The college has also arranged an alumni meeting of post-graduate chemistry students on January 12 inviting its old students who are in senior positions in the Government, industry and research organisations.

Talking to reporters here, T. Chinnaraj Joseph Jaikumar, Principal, said the department, functioning since 1957, was a ‘jewel in the crown’ of the college for its focus on research projects and successful placement of students. P. Maruthamuthu, Vice-Chancellor of Madurai Kamaraj University, will inaugurate it.
