Emerging Role of ICT in Chemical Sciences
Information and Communications Technology (ICT) includes device such as computers, network, hardware, software, electronic technology and satellite systems as well as the various services and applications related to this. The term ICT is also referred as the combination of audio-visual and telephone networks with computer networks through a cabling or link system. ICT removes problems of space and shares the knowledge in an easier and user-friendly way. Research in Chemistry includes systematic analysis of compounds, designing of novel compounds, structure determination of newly synthesized compound etc. This manuscript shows, apart from learning content, learner should have knowledge of ICT to change in the way of traditional teaching and learning. This can be accomplished through the use of online database like Scopus, Scifinder, Reaxys etc to update knowledge of chemistry in the field of academics and research. The scope and demand for ICT is increasing day by day and it is most important to create intellects by providing world class education for promotion of global standards in the Chemical Sciences. One of the most important facets in the teaching and learning is evaluation. Therefore,ICT should become a vehicle for ensuring the quality in the area of Chemical Sciences.
