The Chemistry programme at GEC Multan emphasises the commercial and industrial applications of chemistry and actively promotes and participates in developing industry – academia research projects.
Chemistry is well known as a ‘central science’ because of its unique role in connecting the physical and biological sciences and thus lies at the heart of most technological developments, contributing enormously to the world’s economy. As such, it can be hard to define the boundaries of modern Chemistry as it is no longer simply focused on atoms, ionic compounds and small molecules. Interdisciplinary fields such as materials science, nanotechnology, environmental science and, of course, biology are firmly rooted in Chemistry. It plays a vital role in the development of materials with superior properties. They range from consumer and industrial products such as pesticides for agriculture, novel drugs to fight diseases to nanomaterials possessing unique chemical and physical properties.
