The goals of the research encompasses the disciplines of chemistry and biology involving synthesis of natural product analogues, modified nucleic acids for development of bioanalytical assays and sensor systems, isolation and characterization of chromophores from natural sources, synthesis and functionalization of nanomaterials, synthesis of macrocyclic systems such as porphyrins for sensing applications, photophysical and photochemical studies of synthesized organic solutes  in ionic liquid media, electron transfer, development of natural food coloring agents, enzymology of redox processes and in the research involving electrochemistry, materials and catalysis. The research is funded by major funding agencies (DST, CSIR) and supported by the institute. Faculty are also actively involved in teaching a number of core courses pertaining to both undergraduate and graduate students.

IIT Gandhinagar has acquired and/ placed orders for state-of-the-art research equipment such as Mass Spectrometer (Waters, Synaptic G2S), 500 MHz NMR Instrument (Bruker); Powder XRD (Bruker), Multimode 8 Atomic Force Microscope, (Bruker), Scanning Electron Microscope (JEOL) for sample characterization and analysis. The NMR instrument is solid state ready and equipped for a wide range of nuclei. Other major facilities include UV-Vis spectrophotometer, Thermofisher is 10 FTIR spectrometer, Horiba Jobin Yvon Spectrofluorimeter and High-Pressure Liquid Chromatography (Agilent). Chemistry has 24-hour access to SciFinder and online subscription to many journal publications.
