The Department of Chemistry, St. Anthony's College, was established in the year 1941. The Department is now a full fledged Department with a faculty strength of 7 (seven). The department is one of the oldest Departments in the College. This year the Department has been running close to 70 years, yet the Department has got the flavours of both old aged and highly experience faculty, and young dynamic new faculty.

University Grants Commission (UGC) has identified our Department of Chemistry as one of the Departments to observe “International Year of Chemistry – 2011” in a befitting manner. Aim to generate awareness about the importance of chemistry, and its application over a range of emerging issues related to chemistry, which are of immediate concern to the community, to enlighten new developments and to create an interest on the young minds about the subject.
