The quadruple years of comprehensive study inchemistry and my intense interest in science encourages me to undertake agreater challenge in pursuing a master degree in chemistry. My ambition to be aresearch scientist also makes the graduate study an absolute essential for me.However, to me, the aspiration to fulfill determinations and the glee from findingstriumphed over any sense of hardship. It was one suchparadigm that was the reason and persuasion behind my choice to chooseCHEMISTRY as my graduate major. Iam determined to take up chemistry as my lifelong quest.I feel strongly that mybaccalaureate education at Forman Christian College University have given me afirm foundation in Chemistry.
I received good grades during my BS. I havemanaged to complete each course I enrolled in, while maintaining an overall 89%CGPA. My current research interests haveresulted from a combination of both coursework and lab experiences.I explored chemistry starting with the basic lab experimentsincluding Synthesis of Prussian blue dye, Preparation ofwitting regent, Investigation of adsorption of acetic acid from aqueoussolutions by activated charcoal, Investigation of adsorption of acetic acidfrom aqueous solutions by activated charcoal, Synthesis of Oxime, Synthesis ofRayon, Synthesis of Nylon, Preparation of Thiokol, Determination of CMC of SDSand CTAB and effect of additive on CMC and work on lab project in which3-Acetylcoumarinwas synthesized by Knoevenagal condensation of salicylaldehyde andethylacetoacetate. Coumarin derivative was synthesized by reacting3-Acetylcoumarin with bromine to obtain 3-bromoacetyl coumarin which wasfurther reacted with thiourea to get thiazole coumarin derivative.
Thederivative was characterized by spectroscopic techniques such as UV and IRwhich confirmed the product formation. Purification of the compounds was carriedout by washing and recrystallization. TLC further confirmed the reactioncompletion and purity of compoundsacetate. These experiments have furthercontributed to my confidence to pursue chemistry in deeper details.In addition tostudies, on social side I actively participated during the four academic yearsfor Speers Chemical Society at FC College.
I worked with my colleagues andarranged different workshops and International conference. This granted me withleadership, cooperation and ambassadorship skills. Studying in your Master of Chemistry program will give methe exclusive range of experience and expertise and this will in turn give me anincredible advantage in my Chemistry profession. The important reason for choosing your esteemeduniversity is that it gives astounding chances to pursue research indifferent fields of chemistry. Your strongfaculty is also a significant factor.I’m deeply fascinated about chemistry as a lifelong careerand I am strong-minded to develop myself into a well-trained chemist. Yet I amclearly aware of the enormous efforts I will have to make in order to fulfillthis goal.
Iplan to proceed with my exploration work in chemistry. The fundamentalobjective of my future studies is to gain important research experience anddeepen my knowledge into chemistry. At your university, I would be especiallyhonored by being able to study.
