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.

Palladium-Catalyzed α-Arylation Reactions in Total Synthesis

Palladium-Catalyzed α-Arylation Reactions in Total Synthesis

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).

Synthesis of Vinyl- and Aryl–Acyl Sulfonimidamides Through Pd-Catalyzed Carbonylation Using Mo(CO)6 as ex situ CO Source

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.

A General Metal-Assisted Synthesis of α-Halo Oxime Ethers from Nitronates and Nitro Compounds

A General Metal-Assisted Synthesis of α-Halo Oxime Ethers from Nitronates and Nitro Compounds

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.

Selective Modulation of Charge-Carrier Transport of a Photoanode in a Photoelectrochemical Cell by a Graphitized Fullerene Interfacial Layer

Selective Modulation of Charge-Carrier Transport of a Photoanode in a Photoelectrochemical Cell by a Graphitized Fullerene Interfacial Layer

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.

A Halogen-Bonding Bis-Triazolium Rotaxane for Halide-Selective Anion Recognition

A Halogen-Bonding Bis-Triazolium Rotaxane for Halide-Selective Anion Recognition

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).

The Crystal Structure of a Homodimeric Pseudomonas Glyoxalase I Enzyme Reveals Asymmetric Metallation Commensurate with Half-of-Sites Activity

The Crystal Structure of a Homodimeric Pseudomonas Glyoxalase I Enzyme Reveals Asymmetric Metallation Commensurate with Half-of-Sites Activity

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).

Gold(I)-Catalyzed 1,4- and/or 1,5-Heteroaryl Migration Reactions through Regiocontrolled Cyclizations

Gold(I)-Catalyzed 1,4- and/or 1,5-Heteroaryl Migration Reactions through Regiocontrolled Cyclizations

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).

Aminocatalysis: Beyond Steric Shielding and Hydrogen-Bonding

Aminocatalysis: Beyond Steric Shielding and Hydrogen-Bonding

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.

Activation Parameters as Mechanistic Probes in the TAML Iron(V)–Oxo Oxidations of Hydrocarbons

Activation Parameters as Mechanistic Probes in the TAML Iron(V)–Oxo Oxidations of Hydrocarbons

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.
