Inorganic Chemistry in India

ACS Publications supports and enhances communication of the very best chemistry research. A key example is Inorganic Chemistry, the leading journal in the field. More than 75% of the articles published in Inorganic Chemistry are written by authors from outside the U.S. As science in India continues to progress, Inorganic Chemistry’s editorial team is excited to have Indian scientists get involved as readers, authors, and reviewers.

Inorganic Chemistry Welcomes its First Associate Editor from India

Partha Sarathi Mukherjee

Earlier this year, Inorganic Chemistry welcomed Professor Partha Sarathi Mukherjee of the Inorganic and Physical Chemistry Department, Indian Institute of Science, to its Editorial Board. Partha is the journal’s first Associate Editor from India.

In September, Partha was selected to receive the 2016 Shanti Swarup Bhatnagar Prize For Science and Technology in Chemical Sciences. The award is named for Dr. Shanti Swarup Bhatnagar, the founding

Director of the Council of Scientific & Industrial Research (CSIR) India, and is presented by the CSIR each year “for outstanding contributions to science and technology.”

“Partha has extensive expertise in synthetic inorganic chemistry aimed at developing and understanding molecular cages, organometallic materials, and catalysis,” says Inorganic Chemistry Editor-in-Chief William “Bill” Tolman. “As a highly productive and successful researcher, he is well poised to play a key role as a member of the outstanding team of editors of Inorganic Chemistry. We are excited to have him join us!”

Partha’s latest Inorganic Chemistry article is “Covalent Postassembly Modification and Water Adsorption of Pd3 Self-Assembled Trinuclear Barrels.” Read all of his Inorganic Chemistry articles here.

Inorganic Chemistry to Welcome another Editorial Board Member from India in 2017

In 2017, Inorganic Chemistry will welcome Rabindranath “Rabi” Mukherjee, Professor at the Department of Chemistry, Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, to its Editorial Advisory Board.

“Rabi is a highly esteemed chemist with an extensive record of accomplishment in research, involvement in publishing and reviewing for Inorganic Chemistry, and mentoring students,” says Bill. “We are excited to have him join the Editorial Advisory Board in 2017!”

Rabi’s latest Inorganic Chemistry article is “Nickel(II) Complex of a Hexadentate Ligand with Two o-Iminosemiquinonato(1−) π-Radical Units and Its Monocation and Dication.” Read all of his Inorganic Chemistry articles here.

William “Bill” Tolman and Partha Mukherjee to Co-Chair IC YOU Symposium

William “Bill” TolmanInorganic Chemistry is sponsoring the Inorganic Chemistry: Young, Outstanding, and Upcoming (IC YOU) symposium at the 5th Symposium on Advanced Biological Inorganic Chemistry (SABIC-2017) in Kolkata, India. The event is being organized by Inorganic Chemistry Editorial Advisory Board member Abhishek Dey, Indian Association for the Cultivation of Science, and will be Co-Chaired by Bill and Partha.

This symposium will highlight research contributions from young, outstanding, and upcoming scientists from around the globe who are working at the forefront of research in the field of biological inorganic chemistry. These investigators’ lectures on their research will encompass a wide variety of topics and highlight the most exciting advances.
“Abhishek has provided key advice and insights as a member of the Inorganic Chemistry Editorial Advisory Board, and in particular as Guest Editor of a recent ACS Select Issue on electrocatalysis,” says Bill. “His leadership of the SABIC conference is yet another reflection of his proactive efforts to support excellent science in India and beyond, for which we are thankful.”

Register now to attend SABIC-2017 and the IC YOU symposium.

William “Bill” Tolman at ACS on Campus Events in India

ACS on Campus, the premier outreach initiative of the American Chemical Society, brings the world’s leaders in chemistry, publishing, research, science communication and career development to university campuses around the world by harnessing the power of ACS’s three divisions: ACS Membership, ACS Publications, and Chemical Abstract Services.

At ACS on Campus events, you’ll attend lectures on the latest innovations in science and learn how to publish in top journals, maximize your research, build your career, network with the ACS editors, communicate your research effectively, and much more.

This year Bill participated in

  • January 25, 2016, at Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay
  • January 27, 2016, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore
  • January 29, 2016, International Institute of Information Technology, Hyderabad

During his January 2017 trip to India, Bill will be a featured speaker at three ACS on Campus events:

  • January 11, at SABIC 2017 in Kolkata
  • January 13, at Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur
  • January 16, at Indian Institute of Technology, Guwahati

To attend one of these events, register on the ACS on Campus website.

Inorganic Chemistry Wants More Submissions from Scientists in India

So far this year, Inorganic Chemistry has published dozens of excellent articles by researchers in India, including:

In 2017, the editorial team would like to receive even more manuscripts from authors in India, says Bill. If you’re doing inorganic chemistry research in India, please read the Journal Scope and submit a manuscript.
