The Department of Chemistry organized a webinar on “Molecular Symmetry and Group Theory” for the final year students on 24th March 2021 as a part of their syllabus in the curriculum.
Molecular symmetry in chemistry describes the symmetrical presence in molecules and the classification of molecules according to their symmetry and Group Theory is the mathematical application of symmetry to an object to obtain knowledge of its physical properties. The resource person for the interactive session was Dr. Nisha Nandakumar, Assistant Professor, Sree Vyasa NSS College, Thrissur. The session commenced with a brief explanation of molecular symmetry where the speaker explained various symmetry operations, molecular point groups and group multiplication table of various molecules. A Total 25 students graced up the occasion.
