In its journey of close to eight decades, the institute has developed and transferred technologies in the areas of Coal, Oils & Fats, Generic Drugs, Agrochemicals, Catalysis, Polymers and Coatings.The institute was established with an objective to serve the society of the region through scientific inventions. Over the period of time, IICT has transformed into an institute of international repute and addresses several global issues. Today, our institute has a rich pool of highly qualified scientific personnel and vibrant research students who are involved in diverse areas of research and innovation related to chemical sciences and technology. The Government of India has taken up many initiatives towards achieving “Atmanirbhar Bharat” and our institute is actively involved in many S & T programs in line with this. We have the state-of-the-art infrastructure to undertake industrial projects in a “concept to commercialization” mode. The analytical facilities not only cater to the needs of the in-house projects but also support the industries and MSMEs in particular. The Mol Bank, a unique facility available in the institute, is the repository of molecules prepared by the chemists from various parts of the country and these molecules are regularly screened for biological activity. The recently established Kilo Lab Facilities are open for in-house and MSMEs to produce KSMs and APIs and also agro-chemicals of export quality under stringent quality parameters.
Hyderabad is the epicenter of pharmaceutical industry and a new Pharma City is being established near Hyderabad and our institute is geared up to meet the requirements of this industry. As a part of Skill India Program, we have initiated many courses to enhance skill sets and hence employability of young researchers. We also undertake special residential skill development programs for students from North Eastern States every year sponsored by Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) grants.
