The Shanti Swarup Bhatnagar Prize for chemical sciences is awarded annually by the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) to two Indian scientists, recognizing outstanding research in the applied and fundamental chemical sciences. This year, one of the winners of this prestigious award was Professor Pradyut Ghosh (Indian Association for the Cultivation of Science, Kolkata), who received the prize for his notable work in the fields of inorganic and supramolecular chemistry. A frequent contributor to ChemComm, Professor Ghosh’s work spans many key areas including anion recognition chemistry, molecular encapsulation, chemical sensing of ions, extraction of inorganic salts and supramolecular aggregates. To celebrate Professor Ghosh’s remarkable achievements, we are delighted to present a collection of his recent ChemComm articles below.


In relation to the broad themes of Professor Ghosh’s work, we would like to highlight the upcoming ISACS18: Challenges in Organic Materials and Supramolecular Chemistry conference which will be held in India for the very first time on 19-21 November 2015 in Bangalore. On behalf of the ISACS18 Chair and ChemComm Associate Editor Professor S Ramakrishnan (Indian Institute of Science) and Dr May Copsey (Executive Editor), we warmly invite you to come to this historic and significant event, which will also be attended by our India representatives, Dr Aparna Ganguly and Dr Deeksha Gupta.
