Welcome to the official website of the Association of Carbohydrate Chemists and Technologists, India (ACCTI).

Since the Association was formed in the year 1984 by founder President Dr. H. C. Srivastava, it has been actively fostering research on carbohydrates, and carbohydrate industry in India. The foremost mandate of the Association is to promote carbohydrate research in India and also to provide a common platform to the chemists, biologists and technologists for interactive research.

The Association organizes national conferences every year and international conferences every third year at various Universities and research Institutions in different parts of the country. The conferences are attended by the scientists, academicians and industrialists from all over the world. Interaction through lectures and discussion, exchange of ideas on new developments and industrial requirements related to carbohydrates are the most important part of the conferences.

The Association publishes a peer reviewed international e-journal, ‘Trends in Carbohydrate Research’ (TCR), since 2009. It also publishes a yearly news letter ‘Carbohydrate News Letter’ (CNL). Besides these, the Association and various Industries sponsor several awards to recognize contribution by individuals and also to boost carbohydrate research in India.

The Association is committed to its mission with the support of researchers, industrialists and well wishers from all over the world. We sincerely hope you will find this website interesting and informative.

“Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life – think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success”- Swami Vivekananda
