Indian Institute of Chemical Technology (IICT), Hyderabad, a constituent of CSIR is a leading research Institute in the area of chemical sciences. It was established as Central Laboratories for Scientific and Industrial Research (CLSIR) in the year 1944 by the Nizam State and after independence it was brought under the CSIR as Regional Research Laboratory. It was rechristened as CSIR- IICT in the year 1989 as it acquired a national character. The Institute’s core strength lies in Organic Chemistry and it continues to excel in this field. The research efforts during these years have resulted in development of several innovative processes for a variety of products necessary for human welfare such as drugs, agrochemicals, food, specialty chemicals, organic intermediates and energy. More than 150 technologies developed by CSIR-IICT are now in commercial production.
