About:

As the Editor of the Indian Journal of Chemistry, Sec A, (IJCA) I am involved in communicating results of primary research in inorganic, bioinorganic, theoretical, physical and analytical chemistry. IJCA is a peer-reviewed scholary research journal published monthly by the National Institute of Science Communication And Information Resources (NISCAIR), CSIR, India. IJCA is now an open access journal and provides free access to the full text of all articles and is available at our open access repository, www.nopr.niscair.res.in.

IJCA celebrates chemistry in the International Year of Chemistry 2011 with a special issue on Bioinorganic Chemistry. Guest edited by Prof S Mazumdar (TIFR, Mumbai) , Prof R N Mukherjee (IIT Kanpur, Kanpur)) and Prof C P Rao (IIT Bombay, Mumbai), the 25 articles in this issue present some of the recent developments at the interface of inorganic chemistry and biology. Prof Harry B Gray, California Inst of Technology has been kind enough to write a few lines of introduction to this issue.

Some other special issues on frontier areas of research of chemistry are are also being planned.
