Journal History

The Bombay Technologist is the annual peer-reviewed research journal of the Institute of Chemical Technology, Mumbai. It was started in 1951, by the erstwhile Technological Association, the highest decision making student body of the institute.


Professor K. Venkatraman, a pioneer in Chemical Technology himself, envisioned the concept of an in-house research journal run by the institute and thus laid the foundation of Bombay Technologist.

The Institute of Chemical Technology is itself an internationally renowned centre for research. It churns out hundreds of quality research publications and numerous patents every year solely in Chemical Engineering and Technology. Such a distinction is enjoyed by few, globally.

Six decades later, there is no looking back. Over sixty volumes have been published since. The latest issue is Volume 64.
