Indian Institute of Chemical Technology
In a journey of over seven decades the CSIR-Indian Institute of Chemical Technology (IICT), since its inception in 1944, has achieved a track record of developing solutions in wide spectrum of areas ranging from Pharma and agriculture to industrial development. The IICT has been instrumental in addressing numerous societal challenges and innovative solutions to problems of Indian industries in the area of drugs & pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, lipids, catalysis, functional materials, environmental, analytical, biological and engineering sciences.
The Institute’s efforts have to be completely in tune with the Dehradun Declaration of the Government through time bound delivery centric research programmes that cater to the need of the poorest of poor by translating our knowledge into sustainable products and processes for human welfare. The IICT is unique in its structure since it was established with an objective to serve the society through science, So, both basic and applied research was given equal importance. IICT is equipped with excellent pilot plant facilities to implement the 'concept to commercialisation'approach.
During the initial stages of its inception, IICT started working on pesticides, coal, ceramics, oils and fats adhesives and polymers, natural products and medicinal chemistry. Diverse technologies were developed by the IICT and demonstrated to small and large scale industries. With the changing times priorities and growing needs of the Indian and international clients, IICT diversified into pharma, Energy materials and other sectors of high impact.
Pesticides research resulted in development of new technologies that were used by several industries, while the activity gave birth to bio-pesticides, integrated pest management with chemical attractants such as pheromones/ Khairomones. Research activities include the development of intermediates and process routes for pesticides, besides the design of New Chemical entities (NCEs) as protection chemicals.
