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.

Making it metal free: Porous polymers with high specific surface areas and outstanding hydrophobicity are synthesized by a metal-free and environmentally benign route. The adsorbents show exceptional properties in the liquid-phase adsorption of hydroxymethylfurfural and, thus, render this separation technology suitable for future biorefineries.

Try this on for size: Photocatalytic H2 production from water is reported using a PtII complex with a tetraphenylsilyl-substituted bipyridine ligand as the water reduction catalyst. The catalyst exhibited significant H2 evolution with turnover numbers (TONs) up to 510 000, which is higher than those observed for two control complexes with standard bipyridine ligands, highlighting the importance of ligand substitution and the electron-reservoir characteristics.

Hold on tight! A molecular ruthenium catalyst containing a strong 2,6-pyridine-dicarboxylic acid anchoring group is successfully demonstrated as a co-catalyst for the hematite photoanode. By combining a hematite nanorod array with this molecular ruthenium catalyst, the photocurrent of the photoelectrochemical device for water oxidation is not only enhanced, but also shows high stability.

Porous polyketimine polymers showed moderate hydrophobicity, high CO2 capacity, and high CO2-over-N2 selectivity (see figure). These polymers are potential sorbents for post-combustion capture of CO2.

Ultraselective hydrogenation of -NO2 groups in substituted nitrobenzenes was performed by using a three-phase flow reactor packed with the Au/Al2O3 catalyst. As a result, a series of commercially valuable anilines were obtained in almost 100 % yield under mild conditions (see figure). The catalyst activity, which gradually decreases during the process owing to carbon deposition, was recovered by oxidative treatment without loss of selectivity.

Cinnamyl verité: Palladium-catalyzed intramolecular oxidative cycloisomerization of readily available 2-cinnamyl-1,3-dicarbonyls affords structurally diverse 2-benzyl furans. The cycloisomerization occurs by a regioselective 5-exo-trig pathway, with a broad substrate scope in good to excellent yields. Furthermore, a one-pot procedure is executed by using readily available cinnamyl alcohols and 1,3-diketones (see scheme).

Metal-complex encoding was realized by the light-triggered activation of a self-assembled monolayer (SAM) of UV-labile anchors, that is, phenacylsulfides, and the subsequent cycloaddition of selected diene-functionalized metal complexes at defined areas on the surface. A detailed study of a short chain oligomer model system in solution confirms the high efficiency of the photoreaction.

Pro and anti—pro-drug/anti-inflammatory! An N-acetyl cysteine carbon monoxide releasing molecule (NAC-CORM; see figure) complex conjugate was designed to simultaneouly release CO and the anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory drug NAC. NAC-CORM is able to release CO in aqueous solution and live cells while the ligand NAC abolishes reactive oxygen species (ROS) produced during CO release. In addition, CO and NAC delivered as a unique pro-drug, act synergistically resulting in an enhanced anti-inflammatory response as demonstrated by both inhibition of nitrite production and expression of tumour-necrosis factor-α.

It all makes scents: (+)-(S)-γ-Ionone and (−)-(2S,6R)-cis-γ-irone, two naturally occurring odorants with powerful and pleasant violet-like and iris-like scents, respectively, have been synthesized through a [(NHC)AuI]-catalyzed Meyer–Schuster-like rearrangement of propargylic benzoates. This reaction competes with the oxy-Cope rearrangement. However, either rearrangement can selectively be performed through two different gold-based catalytic systems.

Dynamic duo: A low-cost and environmentally friendly hydrothermal route was used to synthesize reduced graphene oxide (RGO) nanosheet-supported anatase TiO2 fiber bundles with dense mesostructures (see figure). These mesostructured TiO2-RGO materials showed excellent lithium storage performance, high rate performance, and strong cycling stability (a reversible capacity of 235 mA h g−1 at 200 mA g−1 and 150 mA h g−1 at 1000 mA g−1 after 1000 cycles).

Rattling the cage: A series of cages with half-sandwich Rh, Ir and Ru fragments were prepared using CuII-metalloligand components by a stepwise approach. The cavity size could be controlled easily by the length of the organic ligands. The cages with larger cavity sizes were found to accommodate some large guest molecules.

Lower temperature, cleaner hydrogen: By modifying the hydrogen-storage material Zr(BH4)4·8 NH3 with LiBH4 or Mg(BH4)2, lower dehydrogenation temperatures and higher purities of the released hydrogen were achieved, which were attributed to the formation of the diammoniate of diborane (DADB) for Zr(BH4)4·8 NH3–4 LiBH4 and partial transfer of NH3 groups from Zr(BH4)4·8 NH3 to Mg(BH4)2 for Zr(BH4)4·8 NH3–2 Mg(BH4)2 (see figure).

Shell shocked: Ternary layered LiNi0.5Co0.2Mn0.3O2 microspheres are functionally modified with fast-Li+-conductive Li2ZrO3, and the surface-coated LiNi0.5Co0.2Mn0.3O2 microspheres exhibit remarkably improved electrochemical performances as cathode materials in both half and full cells.
