Rajiv Gandhi University of Knowledge Technologies, Basar (formally called as IIIT Basar, Telangana) is established through an Act of the Legislature 2008, by Government of then united Andhra Pradesh to cater the academic needs of gifted rural youth of AP and Telangana. It is the home of technocrafts, utilizing ICT (Information and Communication based Technology). RGUKT has its branches at Basar, Nuzvid and RK Valley. Soon after the formation of Telangana state, RGUKT Basar has become independent and autonomous university in the year 2015. RGUKT has successfully completed eight of its golden years with thousands of rural youth thriving into this e-world; accomplishing its motto "Learning by Doing" by providing laptops and internet to each of its pupil. RGUKT Basar, in the abode of Gnana Saraswathi Temple, has always been innovative with technical ideas and excellent extra-curricular activities under the able guidance of Prof. Sirasani Satyanarayana, Vice Chancellor, RGUKT Basar.

About The Department of Chemistry
The Department of Chemistry was established in 2008 covering PUC and B.Tech I and II years, play a vital role as the intellectual capital in basic chemistry needs of engineering graduates. The department has an excellent team of faculty from institutes of national repute such as IITs, IICT (CSIR) and other state/central universities. Most importantly, department is collaborating with institutes of national importance for research and development programs.

Theme of the Symposium
National symposium on “Recent Advances in Chemical & Material Sciences” is being organized on August 20-21, 2016 by the Department of Chemistry, RGUKT Basar. The aim of the symposium is to bring researchers together to discuss and to keep abreast of latest developments in the interdisciplinary research of chemistry and material sciences. As human evolution is progressing, boundaries are fading away, role of interdisciplinary plays a pivotal rule. This is unique symposium that covers wide spectrum of topics, includes several invited talks followed by poster presentation. Thus, early researchers and students get to know what is what, have opportunity to listen to eminent speakers that will help them to catch up the crux of the problem by attending symposium of this nature. Importantly, yields multiple solutions to a given problem and will significantly shift scientific level of individuals and country as a whole.
