09-DEC-2016: The Department of Applied Physics and Industrial Chemistry Division, Aligarh Muslim University in collaboration with Siegwerk India Pvt. Ltd and under the sponsorship of TEPIQ-II today organised the Inaugural Function of three-day Workshop on ‚??Chemometrics: Application in Chemistry, Nanotechnology and Industry‚?? at the Conference Room, Department of Civil Engineering.
Dr J K Raghava, Head, Global Innovation Network, Siegwerk, who attended the function as the Chief said that it is imperative to have polymer chemists and physicists on a shared platform to get in depth of polymer behaviour in theoretical and experimental ways.
He added that Siegwerk India is closely working with Industrial Chemistry division of AMU for the last few years.
He also thanked the organizing team of the workshop for bringing academic and industrial people on the platform of exchanging thoughts and knowledge in the field of science.
While presiding over the function, Professor Mohammad Idrees, Dean, Faculty of Engineering and Technology pointed out that there is a phenomenal progress in Industrial Chemistry in the last 50-years along with enormous development in computer sciences and technology.
He added that new technologies like AAS, HPLC and Surfaced Analysis were available for chemical analysis in the early 60s. ‚??These developments in conjunction with progress in laboratory automation made it routine to generate large amount of analytical results,‚?? said Prof Idrees adding that the discipline of chemometrics originates in chemistry but its application is huge in nanotechnology and industry.
Guest of Honour, Prof M M Sufiyan Beg, Principal, ZHCET said that it is very important to have research programmes, which do not have adverse effects on environment and people‚??s health. He added that due to pollution and other causes, the world is facing a big problem of climate change, fogs, smogs and other problems and it is important to have environmental friendly research processes in today‚??s world.
Workshop Convenor, Prof Ameer Azam said that chemometrics is an interdisciplinary field, which can be used to address problems in chemistry, bio-chemistry, medicine, biology, chemical engineering and nanotechnology among other areas and this workshop is designed to provide a platform to learn basics and applications of chemometrics.
Workshop Co-Convenor, Prof Anees Ahmad said that chemometrics is a discipline, which can solve many problems and it can go beyond answering relationships between true and obscuring signals data.
Dr M Zain Khan, Organizing Secretary proposed of thanks while research scholar Ms Farheen conducted the programme.
