New Online Manuscript Submission System
We are pleased to announce that after over ten years, manuscriptXpress was replaced by a new Manuscript handling system, EditorialManager from ARIES, on February 1.
The links to the new journal sites are available at: chemistryviews.org/submission.
Articles that have been submitted to manuscriptXpress will be processed from there.
Thank you for your patience and we look forward to receiving your next excellent manuscript.
Recently Published Articles
- Dendrimer-Encapsulated Cobalt Nanoparticles as High-Performance Catalysts for the Hydrolysis of Ammonia Borane
Kengo Aranishi, Dr. Qi-Long Zhu and Prof. Dr. Qiang Xu
Article first published online: 6 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201301006
A web of hydrolysis: Dendrimer-encapsulated Co nanoparticles (G6-OH(Co60)) are synthesized by complexation of Co2+ cations to the internal tertiary amine of sixth-generation hydroxyl-terminated poly(amidoamine) dendrimers followed by reduction by both sodium borohydride and ammonia borane in aqueous solution. The highly dispersed G6-OH(Co60) show high catalytic activities in the hydrolysis of ammonia borane in aqueous solution at different reaction temperatures.
- Ethylene Polymerization Catalyzed by Pyrene-Tagged Iron Complexes: The Positive Effect of π-Conjugation and Immobilization on Multiwalled Carbon Nanotubes
Liping Zhang, Dr. Wenjuan Zhang, Prof. Philippe Serp, Prof. Wen-Hua Sun and Dr. Jérôme Durand
Article first published online: 5 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201301063
Show your support for polymerization: Task-specific pyrene-tagged Fe complexes are highly active catalysts in ethylene polymerization. Their noncovalent immobilization onto the surface of multiwalled carbon nanotubes allows the design of supported catalytic systems that can be more active than the corresponding unsupported systems and/or allow a better control of the polyethylene polydispersity.
- Surface Treatment for Conductive 12 CaO⋅7 Al2O3 Electride Powder by Rapid Thermal Annealing Processing and Its Application to Ammonia Synthesis
Dr. Fumitaka Hayashi, Prof. Masaaki Kitano, Dr. Toshiharu Yokoyama, Prof. Michikazu Hara and Prof. Hideo Hosono
Article first published online: 5 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201301061
Hot and fast! Rapid thermal annealing enables the surface reconstruction of the [Ca24Al28O64]4+(e−)4 electride without fatal particle sintering, which allows smooth electron transfer to a N2 molecule adsorbed on Ru nanoparticles. The surface area achieved (9–19 m2 g−1) is ≈10 times greater than that of solid-state-synthesized [Ca24Al28O64]4+(e−)4.
- Michael Addition of N-Unprotected 2-Oxindoles to Nitrostyrene Catalyzed by Bifunctional Tertiary Amines: Crucial Role of Dispersion Interactions
Christoph Reiter, Sònia López-Molina, Bernhard Schmid, Dr. Christian Neiss, Prof. Dr. Andreas Görling and Prof. Dr. Svetlana B. Tsogoeva
Article first published online: 5 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201301052
The importance of being dispersed: Bifunctional thiourea- or sulfonamide-derived tertiary amines such as Takemoto′s catalyst catalyze the enantioselective nitro-Michael addition of N-unprotected 3-substituted 2-oxindoles to nitrostyrene in high yields and enantiomeric and diastereomeric ratios. DFT calculations including van der Waals corrections are performed for the stereoisomers.
- Dinuclear Zinc–N-Heterocyclic Carbene Complexes for Either the Controlled Ring-Opening Polymerization of Lactide or the Controlled Degradation of Polylactide Under Mild Conditions
Dr. Christophe Fliedel, Diogo Vila-Viçosa, Prof. Maria José Calhorda, Dr. Samuel Dagorne and Prof. Teresa Avilés
Article first published online: 5 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201301015
Mild thing: Simple dinuclear zinc–N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) alkyl/alkoxide complexes mediate, under mild conditions, either the ring-opening polymerization of lactide (in an effective and controlled manner) for the production of chain length-controlled polylactide or, in the presence of an alcohol source such as MeOH, the controlled depolymerization of polylactide through extensive transesterification reactions.
