Department of Chemistry, SVKM’s NMIMS Sunandan Divatia School of Science organized the National Seminar on “Recent Advances in Spectroscopy and Analytical Techniques” from 15th to 17th October 2015. The Seminar was designed to highlight the latest developments in the area of Electrochemistry, Spectroscopy, Phytochemistry and Nanosciences. The seminar brought together experts, scholars and researchers from different parts of the country on a common platform to deliberate and discuss the emerging trends and challenges in the above areas.

The technical program of the seminar included 16 invited talks, 8 oral presentations by students and around 25 contributed papers as posters. The plenary talk was delivered by Prof. D. Bahadur, Emeritus Professor, Indian Institute of Technology Bombay. Talks by Prof. T. G. Gopakumar (IIT Kanpur), Dr. Ankona Dutta (TIFR), Prof. A. K. Srivastava (Mumbai University), Prof. C. P. Rao and Prof. Nandkishore (IIT Bombay) were highly valued and appreciated by the students. Poster awards were given to young researchers and the first prize was given to Mr. Anish Gomatam of Bombay College of Pharmacy for his work on “Conformational Study on Pheromonotropin neuropeptide using NMR and Molecular Dynamics”.

The National Seminar was supported and sponsored by NMIMS University and co-sponsored by Department of Science and Technology (DST), and Board of Research in Nuclear Sciences (BRNS), Department of Atomic Energy, Government of India. We also received sponsorships from private industries like Sinsil International Ltd., Aimil Ltd. and Science4u Analytics and Research Solutions Pvt. Ltd., which is gratefully acknowledged.
