Mission Statement

ChemPubSoc Europe is an organization of 16 European chemical societies, founded in the late 1990s as a consequence of the amalgamation of many chemical journals owned by national chemical societies into a number of high-quality European journals.

ChemPubSoc Europe's journals, all published with Wiley-VCH, are: Chemistry—A European Journal, European Journal of Organic Chemistry, European Journal of Inorganic Chemistry, ChemBioChem, ChemPhysChem, ChemMedChem, ChemSusChem, ChemCatChem, ChemPlusChem, ChemElectroChem, ChemistryOpen, and ChemViews, the ChemPubSoc Europe e-zine. They replaced 16 traditional national chemistry journals.

The participating societies share a commitment to scientific excellence, to publishing ethics, and to the highest standards in publication, which are the basis for the success of the ChemPubSoc Europe journals.

ChemPubSoc Europe and its Asian sister organization, the Asian Chemical Editorial Society (ACES), mutually support each other in the publication of their journals Chemistry—A European Journal, Chemistry—An Asian Journal, and ChemSusChem.

A Short-Step Synthesis of 1,6-Methano[10]annulene-3,4-dicarboximides and Their Benzene-, Naphthalene-, and Thiophene-Annulated Compounds

A Short-Step Synthesis of 1,6-Methano[10]annulene-3,4-dicarboximides and Their Benzene-, Naphthalene-, and Thiophene-Annulated Compounds

A new one-pot procedure for 1,6-methano[10]annulene-3,4-dicarboximides and its arene-annulated compounds is developed. Cyclohepta-1,3,5-triene-1,6-dicarbaldehyde and its arene-annulated dicarbaldehyde analogs react with various phosphorane reagents to give 1,6-methano[10]annulene-3,4-dicarboximides.

Efficient Anti-Markovnikov-Selective Catalysts for Intermolecular Alkyne Hydroamination: Recent Advances and Synthetic Applications

Efficient Anti-Markovnikov-Selective Catalysts for Intermolecular Alkyne Hydroamination: Recent Advances and Synthetic Applications

Hydroamination, the catalytic addition of an N–H bond across a C–C unsaturation site, is a 100 % atom-economical route for the construction of nitrogen-containing small molecules. However, regioselectivity is a great challenge for this reaction. This Microreview focuses on recent advances and highlights some synthetic applications of anti-Markovnikov-selective intermolecular alkyne hydroamination.

Synthesis of Atomically Precise Silver Clusters by Using the Miscibility Principle

Synthesis of Atomically Precise Silver Clusters by Using the Miscibility Principle

Silver and gold clusters have been synthesized by using the miscibility principle of solvents. Three solvents, that is, water, methanol, and toluene (or chloroform) have been used to synthesize different silver clusters by this method without phase-transfer agents. Separate regions of the phase diagram (a, b, c, and d) produce distinctly different clusters from the same reactant compositions.

Au–Co3O4/C as an Efficient Electrocatalyst for the Oxygen Evolution Reaction

Au–Co3O4/C as an Efficient Electrocatalyst for the Oxygen Evolution Reaction

What a bind! The electron binding energy of Co 2p shows a positive shift of about 0.89 eV after loading with Au (see figure). Such a big shift in binding energy promotes the formation of CoIV and increases the population of active centers on the catalyst surface. Gold, a highly electronegative metal, acts as an electron adsorbate, which facilitates the deprotonation of the OOH species by an electron inductive effect.

Lithium–Air Oxygen Shuttle Battery with a ZrO2-Based Ion-Conducting Oxide Electrolyte

Lithium–Air Oxygen Shuttle Battery with a ZrO2-Based Ion-Conducting Oxide Electrolyte

Full of hot air! A lithium–air cell based on the concept of an “oxygen shuttle” in a calcium-stabilized ZrO2 (CSZ) electrolyte is described. The observed open-circuit voltage and discharge capacity are 1.81 V and 2179 mAh per gram of Li, respectively, at 1073 K (see picture). The observed overpotential in the anode is similar to that in a Mg–air cell reported previously, and much smaller than that of a H2–air fuel cell.

Dangling Ends Perturb the Stability of RNA Duplexes Responsive to Surrounding Conditions

Dangling Ends Perturb the Stability of RNA Duplexes Responsive to Surrounding Conditions

Let's talk about stability: In the presence of various cosolutes, RNA duplexes with dangling ends are significantly destabilized depending on the hydration type of the dangling ends, although the RNA duplexes are stabilized in the absence of cosolutes. It has been postulated that dangling ends stabilize helices; however, our results suggest that the stabilization is responsive to the surrounding conditions.

A Preorganized Metalloreceptor for Alkaline Earth Ions Showing Calcium Versus Magnesium Selectivity in Water: Biological Activity of Selected Metal Complexes

Visibly organized: The N,N'-bis[(3-hydroxy-4-pyron-2-yl)methyl]-N,N'-dimethylethylendiamine (Malten=L) ligand forms the stable [CuH−2L] species, which is able to bind Ca2+ but not Mg2+ in water at physiological pH 7.4. The binding of Ca2+ is visible to the naked eye. Ca2+ forms a trinuclear [Ca{Cu(H−2L)}2]2+ and tetranuclear [Ca{Cu(H−2L)}]24+ species having different colors in the solid state (see figure). Selected complexes induce DNA alterations compatible with its hydrolytic cleavages.
