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.

An Improved Protocol for the Synthesis of α-Trifluoromethylthio-Substituted Ketones by Copper-Mediated Trifluoromethylthiolation of α-Bromo Ketones

An Improved Protocol for the Synthesis of α-Trifluoromethylthio-Substituted Ketones by Copper-Mediated Trifluoromethylthiolation of α-Bromo Ketones

An improved protocol for the copper-mediated trifluoromethylthiolation of α-bromo ketones by using (bpy)Cu(SCF3) (bpy = 2,2'-bipyridyl) to afford the corresponding α-trifluoromethylthio-substituted ketones in good to excellent yields is presented. The procedure tolerates electron-withdrawing and electron-donating groups on the aromatic rings.

Transformation of Glycals into α,β,γ,δ-Conjugated Chirons under Metal-Free Conditions

Transformation of Glycals into α,β,γ,δ-Conjugated Chirons under Metal-Free Conditions

A diastereoselective, metal-free, one-pot domino synthetic strategy is developed for the transformation of glycals into new chiral scaffolds. Optimization of the reaction conditions to exclude normal Ferrier products, characterization of the new entities, and a plausible mechanism are presented (TMSOTf: trimethylsilyl trifluoromethanesulfonate).

The Ugi–Smiles and Passerini–Smiles Couplings: A Story About Phenols in Isocyanide-Based Multicomponent Reactions

The Ugi–Smiles and Passerini–Smiles Couplings: A Story About Phenols in Isocyanide-Based Multicomponent Reactions

The Ugi–Smiles and Passerini–Smiles couplings are isocyanide-based multicomponent reactions involving phenols and each featuring a Smiles rearrangement as a key step of the mechanism. Their scope, mechanistic studies, and the use of these couplings for a variety of routes to fused aromatic systems are reviewed here.

Silanediol-Catalyzed Carbon Dioxide Fixation

Silanediol-Catalyzed Carbon Dioxide Fixation

Life in the silane: Silanediols operate in conjunction with iodide to catalyze the incorporation of carbon dioxide into epoxides. The reaction system benefits from mild reaction conditions and the ability to prepare a wide array of cyclic carbonates in excellent yields. The excellent hydrogen-bonding abilities of silanediols render them useful metal-free catalysts in reactions of carbon dioxide and epoxides.

Regio- and Enantioselective Friedel–Crafts Reactions of Indoles to Epoxides Catalyzed by Graphene Oxide: A Green Approach

Regio- and Enantioselective Friedel–Crafts Reactions of Indoles to Epoxides Catalyzed by Graphene Oxide: A Green Approach

Do not pass GO: Graphene oxide efficiently promotes highly regio- and enantioselective ring opening reactions of aromatic epoxides by addition of indoles, in solvent- and metal-free conditions. The Friedel–Crafts products were obtained with enantioselectivity up to 99 % ee. The complete inversion of stereochemistry indicates the occurrence of SN2-type reactions, which assures high level of enantioselectivity.

Hydroarylations of Heterobicyclic Alkenes through Rhodium-Catalyzed Directed C-H Functionalizations of S-Aryl Sulfoximines

Hydroarylations of Heterobicyclic Alkenes through Rhodium-Catalyzed Directed C-H Functionalizations of S-Aryl Sulfoximines

Rhodium-catalyzed hydroarylations of heterobicyclic alkenes with NH-sulfoximines lead to products that can then be converted to aryl-fused thiazines. The initial process involves a C-H-functionalization directed by the sulfoximidoyl group. Aryl addition to the alkene is then followed by dehydration and palladium-catalyzed oxidative C-N coupling (see scheme).

Copper-Catalyzed Propargylic Substitution of Dichloro Substrates: Enantioselective Synthesis of Trisubstituted Allenes and Formation of Propargylic Quaternary Stereogenic Centers

Copper-Catalyzed Propargylic Substitution of Dichloro Substrates: Enantioselective Synthesis of Trisubstituted Allenes and Formation of Propargylic Quaternary Stereogenic Centers

A range of chiral allenes and terminal alkynes are synthesized highly enantioselectively. Starting from prochiral dichloro substrate bearing substituent R1, different alkyl groups R2 are introduced providing chiral chloroallenes. Further substitution reaction installs R3 groups highly stereospecifically and demonstrates diverse substitution patterns.

Luminescence Color Tuning of PtII Complexes and a Kinetic Study of Trimer Formation in the Photoexcited State

Luminescence Color Tuning of PtII Complexes and a Kinetic Study of Trimer Formation in the Photoexcited State

Luminescence color tuning: An excited PtII complex was shown to possess a sufficiently long lifetime for aggregation to take place, and easily form an aggregate in energetically favored exothermic reactions. Color variation from blue to white to orange, due to blending of the luminescence colors of the monomer, dimer, and trimer of the excited PtII complex, was observed not only in concentration-dependent emission but also in time-resolved emission.

Eco-Friendly Catalytic Systems Based on Carbon-Supported Magnesium Oxide Materials for the Friedländer Condensation

Eco-Friendly Catalytic Systems Based on Carbon-Supported Magnesium Oxide Materials for the Friedländer Condensation

Oxide, outside: MgO supported on carbon is able to catalyze the synthesis of interesting N-containing heterocyclic compounds efficiently under mild conditions. MgO on the carbon surface is responsible for the catalytic behavior. These carbon materials are environmentally friendly catalysts for the Friedländer reaction.

Photocatalytic Hydrogen Evolution from Silica-Templated Polymeric Graphitic Carbon Nitride–Is the Surface Area Important?

Photocatalytic Hydrogen Evolution from Silica-Templated Polymeric Graphitic Carbon Nitride–Is the Surface Area Important?

More H2 through silica templating: Mesoporous-silica-templated, low-surface-area, polymeric graphitic carbon nitride (SBA–g-C3N4) exhibits a greatly improved photocatalytic hydrogen evolution rate on a per-surface area basis compared to that of conventional bulk graphitic carbon nitrides. The intrinsically high surface activity of SBA–g-C3N4 was confirmed for both homo- (cobaloxime) and heterogeneous (Pt) co-catalyst systems (TEOA=triethanolamine).
