Applied chemistry is the application of the principles and theories of chemistry to answer a specific question or solve a real-world problem, as opposed to pure chemistry, which is aimed at enhancing knowledge within the field.Let’s say your aim is to find a cure for a disease – Alzheimer’s. You work hard in the laboratory creating a drug that stops dementia from setting in. This would be an example of applied chemistry, since you used chemistry to solve a specific, real-world problem.This department aims at providing such a knowledge to engineering students for understanding and solving chemical related problems in engineering.
