English abstract

Attempts to analyse quantitatively 475 papers published by the Bio-Organic Division of Bhabha Atomic Research Centre during 1972–2002 in various domains like Synthesis (202), Bioorganic Chemistry (100), Biotechnology (70), Natural Products (53), Waste Management (30), Supra-molecular Chemistry (18) and Organic Spectroscopy (2). The highest number of publications in a year were 38 in 2001. The average number of publications per year was 15.3 and the highest collaboration coefficient 1.0 was found in the years 1972,1976-1977,1980-1985,1987,1989-1990 and 1993. The most prolific authors were: A. Banerji (125), V. R. Mamdapur (93), S. Chattopadhyay (86), M. S. Chadha (61), S. K. Nayak (37), A. Chattopadhyay (30), L. P. Badheka (26), G. J. Chintalwar (26), S.K. Ghosh (25), and N. B. Mulchandani (25). The core journals preferred by the scientists to publish their papers include: Indian Journal of Chemistry-B (56), Tetrahedron Letters (20), Synthetic Communications (15), Journal of Organic Chemistry (14), Biotechnology Letters (12), Phytochemistry (12), Tetrahedron Asymmetry (11), Journal of Chemical Society- Perkin Transactions –I (10) and Molecules(10).
