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.

Phenyliodine Bis(trifluoroacetate) (PIFA) as an Excellent Promoter of 2-Deoxy-2-phthalimido-1-thioglycosides in the Presence of Triflic Acid in Glycosylation Reactions

Phenyliodine Bis(trifluoroacetate) (PIFA) as an Excellent Promoter of 2-Deoxy-2-phthalimido-1-thioglycosides in the Presence of Triflic Acid in Glycosylation Reactions

Glycosylation reactions using p-(octyloxy)phenyl 2-deoxy-2-phthalimido-1-thio-D-glucopyranoside or p-(octyloxy)phenyl 2-deoxy-2-phthalimido-1-thio-D-galactopyranoside as the donor substrate afforded β-glycosylated products in good to excellent yields by activating the thioglycosides with PIFA (1 equiv.) and TfOH (2 equiv.).

A Facile Route to Bis(pyridyl-1,3,5-triazine) Ligands with Fluorescing Properties

A Facile Route to Bis(pyridyl-1,3,5-triazine) Ligands with Fluorescing Properties

Several bis(pyridyl-1,3,5-triazine) (dpt) ligands are prepared via Stille coupling with yields and scope of application superior to known trimerisation procedures. Ditopic ligands with different spacers are prepared and incorporation of p- and m-substituted phenyl rings enable access to different isomers. The absorption and emission properties can be tuned using oligothiophene spacers.

CuPN2: Synthesis, Crystal Structure, and Electronic Properties

CuPN2: Synthesis, Crystal Structure, and Electronic Properties

CuPN2, the first known ternary Cu phosphorus nitride, has been synthesized under high-pressure high-temperature conditions. It is isostructural to LiPN2 and an indirect bandgap semiconductor as shown by DFT calculations.

Theoretical Insight Into the Role of Triarylboron Substituents in Tetradentate Dianionic Bis(N-heterocyclic carbene) Platinum(II) Chelates – Improving the Performance of Blue Light Emission

Theoretical Insight Into the Role of Triarylboron Substituents in Tetradentate Dianionic Bis(N-heterocyclic carbene) Platinum(II) Chelates – Improving the Performance of Blue Light Emission

The introduction of triarylboron substituents and appropriate π-conjugation to the N-heterocyclic (NHC) ligands of PtII complexes may improve their phosphorescence efficiencies and render them good candidates for highly efficient blue emission.

Synthesis, Magnetic Properties, and X-ray Spectroscopy of Divalent Cobalt(II) and Nickel(II) Cubanes [MII4(HL2)4(OAc)4]

Synthesis, Magnetic Properties, and X-ray Spectroscopy of Divalent Cobalt(II) and Nickel(II) Cubanes [MII4(HL2)4(OAc)4]

Starting from 2,6-pyridinedimethanol (H2L2, 3) and metal(II) acetate tetrahydrates, divalent CoII and NiII cubanes [MII4(HL2)4(OAc)4] (4) have been synthesized through self-organization. In addition to standard methods (e.g., IR, MS, X-ray analysis), complexes 4 were also characterized by magnetometry and X-ray spectroscopic techniques, including XPS, XAS, and XMCD.

Direct Synthesis of Hydrogen Peroxide over Au-Pd Catalyst—The Effect of Co-Solvent Addition

Direct Synthesis of Hydrogen Peroxide over Au-Pd Catalyst—The Effect of Co-Solvent Addition

Solvent provides the solution! The direct synthesis represents a green alternative, environmentally benign, process for the production of hydrogen peroxide. The liquid phase used in the direct synthesis has a role to collect hydrogen peroxide from the catalyst surface preventing its decomposition. Here we show that the choice of solvent used in the liquid phase has a tremendous effect not only on conversion, but on selectivity towards the desired product.

Tuneable Hydrogenation of Nitriles into Imines or Amines with a Ruthenium Pincer Complex under Mild Conditions

Tuneable Hydrogenation of Nitriles into Imines or Amines with a Ruthenium Pincer Complex under Mild Conditions

Synthetic double punch: The selective hydrogenation of nitriles into amines and imines is described. The selectivity towards amines or imines can be controlled by using a ruthenium pincer complex. The reactions are conducted at low temperature and low pressure without any additives at low catalytic loadings of 0.5–1 mol %, which results in quantitative conversions and high selectivity.

The Multiple Roles of Imidazolium Ionic Liquids in Transition-Metal Catalysis: The Palladium-Catalyzed Telomerization of 1,3-Butadiene with Acetic Acid

Completing the puzzle: A Pd catalyst with the Dan2phos ligand, a new trifluoromethylated and sulfonated phosphine, and MeOImAcO, an ionic liquid with an acetate anion, is the right combination for the telomerization of 1,3-butadiene with acetic acid.
