Chemists in India are increasingly publishing cutting-edge organic and inorganic chemistry research, as evidenced by the substantial growth in submissions from authors in India over the last decade (up 173%) across five ACS Publications journals within the organic/inorganic portfolio ( ACS Catalysis, Inorganic Chemistry, Organic Letters, Organometallics, The Journal of Organic Chemistry). In 2016, research from scientists in India accounted for 6.2% of all papers published in these five journals. Among the Associate Editors and Editorial Board members for these journals are ten researchers based in India.

This month, ACS is sponsoring the Indo-US Organometallic Chemistry Workshop, December 8-10 in Mumbai, India. ACS Publications will be the only publisher attending this exclusive event, which was co-organized by the Indian Institute of Science Bangalore, the Indian Institutes of Science Education and Research Kolkata, the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, and the University of Utah. The event will be attended by Journal of the American Chemical Society Associate Editor Matthew S. Sigman of the University of Utah and The Journal of Organic Chemistry Associate Editor Debabrata Maiti of the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, both of whom are on the event’s organizing committee. ACS Omega Managing Editor Deeksha Gupta will also attend.

The organizers, speakers, and attendees of this invitation-only event have strong connections to ACS Publications. Check out this Virtual Issue of important recent papers published in the five participating journals from select participants below. You can click on the participants’ names to see their full list of papers published with ACS Publications.
