Re: M.Sc Chemistry Syllabus Calicut University
The University of Calicut or Calicut University is an associating university situated at Thenjipalam in Malappuram district of Kerala state in India. The University has a number of offcampus centres in nearest districts Calicut University was set up in 1968 and was administered by Dr. M.M Ghani in the 1970s.
