Indian Institute of Engineering Science and Technology, Shibpur

Former Senior Professor and Head, Dept. of Chemistry, IIT, Kanpur

Teaching

On joining IITK in 1978 introduced a new course on bioinorganic chemistry in 1979 (CHM 646) and as such a course on this topic was first introduced in India and later this branch of inorganic chemistry is being taught in all the Universities and Institutes in India.

Few courses that Prof. Sarkar taught.

  •  Bioinorganic Chemistry

  •  Metal -carbon bond, application and homogeneous/heterogeneous catalysts

  •  The inorganic chemistry of elements

  •  Chemistry of polyhedral clusters and metal-metal multiple bonded compounds and Bio system

  •  General Chemistry, Laboratory training with organic, inorganic and physical chemistry

  • Principles, Basic bonding models, chemical forces, main group, inter-halogen, noble gas compounds, coordination chemistry, bondingtheories, organometallic chemistry, introduction to catalysis

  • Analytical principles with spectroscopy, chromatography, pH, conductivity, electrophoretic separation experiments

  •  Principles of modern inorganic chemistry of non transition metals, Unifying features in transition metal chemistry, description of chemistry of transition elements

  •  Synthesis of air unstable complexes, forensic experiments, spectroscopic technique like IR, Raman, NMR, EPR, Mass, Magnetism, electrochemistry

  •  Basic biology, proteins, nucleic acids, membrane structure and function, glycolysis, TCA cycle, oxidative phophorylation, oxygen binding proteins, genetic code, transcription, translation, genetic engineering, cloning, sitedirected mutagensis, biotechnology). Innovative laboratory experiments in relevance to B.Tech.

  •  An advanced course, mechanisms of inorganic reactions and legend field theory

Presently teaching B.Sc ( Hons.) and M.Sc. students of Ramakrishna Mission Vidyamandira , Belurmath, Howrah ; the special courses like Macromolecular Chemistry and Nanoscience.
