The current status of research in the area of solid state and materials chemistry in India have been presented and discussed. The article focuses on various materials that have been categorized as traditional solids (dense) and porous solids. While many of the material properties such as ferromagnetism, superconductivity, colossal magneto resistance, multiferroic behaviour, etc. have been explored mainly in dense solids, porous solids contribute towards many properties in the areas of catalysis, sorption, gas separation and hydrogen storage. Possible directions for future research, along with identifying and highlighting the strengths of the expertise available in this country, were also mentioned. © 2020 Indian National Science Academy.
