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.

Metal-catalyzed α-arylation of carbonyl compounds has become a powerful tool for organic chemists to construct carbon-carbon bonds through C–H functionalization based on enolization. This microreview highlights recent applications of α-arylation in total syntheses both of natural products and of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs).

N-(α,β-Unsaturated acyl) sulfonimidamides have been prepared through a Pd-catalyzed carbonylation protocol, employing sulfonimidamide nucleophiles, CO gas released ex situ, and vinyl/aryl halides and triflates as reagents. The obtained products undergo facile thermolytic Boc deprotection in DMSO, thereby offering convenient access to deprotected analogues.

The first examples of asymmetric epoxidation of dihydroquinoline substrates by using iminium salt organocatalysts are reported. The 3,4-epoxytetrahydroquinoline products are obtained with moderate to good enantioselectivities.

A general approach to the synthesis of α-halo oxime ethers is reported. The strategy involves as a key step an unprecedented reaction of readily accessible bis(oxy)enamines with a metal halide that acts both as a promoter and halide source. A variety of cyclic and acyclic ethers of α-halo oximes have been synthesized in good-to-high yields.

Renewable route to butadiene: A silver-loaded MgO-SiO2 catalyst is active in the direct formation of butadiene from ethanol. Preparation steps have significant impact on internal organization of the final catalyst in terms of redox-acid/base properties. Based on extensive characterizations, a model is constructed to describe the catalytic activity of this system.

Layer it up: A graphitic carbon interfacial layer, derived from C70 by annealing at 500 °C, results in a significant increase in the attainable photocurrent of a photoelectrochemical cell that contains a WO3-functionalized fluorine-doped tin oxide photoanode. Modification of interfaces using graphitized carbon materials is favorable for production of cheap and highly efficient large-area solar-to-fuel devices.

Solvent not required: Neat secondary amines were reversibly reacted with CO2 in the absence of any solvent because they were liquid before and after CO2 uptake. Good absorption efficiency was attained in continuous cycles of absorption and desorption performed in packed columns.

Captivating halides: Anion-binding investigations on a series of acyclic halogen-bonding (XB) and hydrogen-bonding (HB) bis-triazolium carbazole receptors demonstrate the halide-binding superiority of the XB receptors. A mixed XB and HB carbazole-based rotaxane exhibited halide anion selectivity over oxoanions in an aqueous solvent mixture, with a binding preference for bromide (A−=anion; I=iodine).

Half-of-sites activity is a puzzling phenomenon where only one of two essentially identical active sites of an enzyme is catalytically active. Structural and kinetic studies on the metalloenzyme GloA2 demonstrated that the two sites are capable of adopting two completely different metal-binding arrangements, which catalyze two different reactions (see figure).

Migrate to complex products: Gold(I)-catalyzed regioselective cycloisomerizations of furan-ynes have been developed. In the presence of unactivated 3 Å molecular sieves, trisubstituted alkenes were provided stereoselectively by endo cyclization with concomitant 1,5-migration of the furanyl group. In the absence of molecular sieves, indene products were generated by exo cyclization followed by 1,4-furanyl migration/cyclization (see scheme).

The law of attraction: What determines the stereochemical outcome in aminocatalytic transformations when the steric-shielding or hydrogen-directing approach is not possible? The Concept article will postulate that the stereochemical outcome can be accounted for by electrostatic interactions between the catalytic bound substrate and the reagent in the transition state.

The devil is in the detail: Linear correlation between Gibbs free energies of activation ΔG≠ and C-H bond dissociation energies DC−H for hydrocarbon oxidation by a FeVO–TAML complex falsely dictates a common mechanism for all substrates. Dissecting ΔG≠ into ΔH≠ and ΔS≠, and plotting ΔH≠ vs. DC−H reveals an alternate oxidation mechanism for the hydrocarbon with lowest DC−H.

First response: Use of synthetic nano/micro/macromotors has demonstrated potential in environmental remediation, both in pollutant removal and contaminant degradation, owing to motion- induced mixing. At the same time, the chemical environment exerts influence on the locomotion of the motors, allowing these sensitized self-powered devices to be deployed as sensors and first responders to chemical leakage.

Becoming robust: Oligoethylenedioxithiophene–vinylene oligomers are conformationally robust highly π-conjugated molecules. With oxidation, they form single and dimerised forms of charged species with variable valence conferring tuneable electrochromic features.

Pronounced maxima! Donor–acceptor (D–A) structures consisting of alternating arrays of hexa-peri-hexabenzocoronene (HBC) and benzo[c][1,2,5]thiadiazole (BTZ) were investigated for their optoelectronic properties and their arrangement in liquid crystalline columnar assemblies. This demonstrated a facile route to nanographene cutouts with adjustable features (see scheme).

A carbon dioxide tap: In a cyclic process, fed with external chemical energy generated by the transformation of a compound with high chemical potential to carbon dioxide, the undesired enantiomer from a catalytic asymmetric reaction is continuously recycled to the starting reagent. This minor enantiomer recycling is characterized by gradually increasing yields and product enantiomeric ratios.
