UNIVERSITY OF CALICUTM.Sc. CHEMISTRY (CSS PATTERN)Regulations and Syllabuswith effect from 2010 admissionPreambleThe Board of Studies in Chemistry (PG) at its meeting held on21.06.2010 considered the introduction of Credit Semester System (CSS) inaffiliated colleges for the PG programmes in Chemistry and resolved toimplement the CSS pattern from 2010 admission onwards. The revisedprogramme pattern; syllabus, distribution of credits and scheme of evaluation,etc. approved by the Board are given below:Pattern of the Programme(a)The name of the programme shall be M.Sc. Chemistry under CSSpattern.(b)The programme shall be offered in four semesters within a period of twoacademic years.(c)Eligibility for admission wi ll be as per the rules laid down by theUniversity from time to time.(d)Details of the programme offered for the programme are given inTable I. The programme shall be conducted in accordance with theprogramme pattern, scheme of examination a nd syllabus prescribed. Ofthe 25 hours per week, 12 hours shall be allotted for theory, 12 hoursfor practicals and 1 hour for seminar.Theory CoursesIn each semester there will be three theory courses. All the theorycourses in the first and second semesters are core papers. In the thirdsemester there will be two core theory courses and one elective course.Colleges can choose any one of the elective courses given in table 1. In thefourth semester there will be one core courses and two elective courses.College can choose any two elective courses from those given in table 1.However a candidate may be permitted to choose any other elective courseswithout giving any lecture classes.Practicals: In each semester there will be three core practic al courses(2 credits each). However practical examination will be conducted only at theend of the second semester for CHPO1, CHPO2, CHPO3 and at the end offourth semester for CHPO4, CHPO5, CHPO6.Project and Viva Voce : Each student will have to do an independentresearch project work during the programme under the guidance of a facultymember of the college/ scientists of recog nized research institutions and tosubmit the dissertation at the end of the fourth semester for evaluation(5 credits). There will be a comprehensive viva voce (3 credits) at the end of2

the fourth semester. The viva voce will be based on the theory and practicalcourses and the project work.Dr. K. KrishnankuttyChairmanBOS in Chemistry (PG)3
