The present paper deals with the chemical science research in India for the span of fifteen years based on web of science database. The main objective is to study a scientometric output of all chemical science scientists. In this we studied the growth of research output and citations, relative growth rate and doubling time, sub-discipline wise distribution of publications and citations, activity index, citation index, national and international collaboration, highly productive institutions, highly productive authors, highly preferred journals and highly cited publications. India has produced 1,31,212 papers, and received 12,70,317 citations during the period 2002-2016, in the same manner world has produced 24,04,444 publications in chemical science and had increased its publications from 1,14,912 in 2002 to 1,93,822 in 2016.
