Call for Papers: Special Issue on Catalytic Systems for Water Splitting

Call for Papers: Special Issue on Catalytic Systems for Water Splitting

The Pacifichem Symposium #76 entitled "Molecular Catalysis of Water Splitting Reactions", held on December 15 and 16, 2015, will bring together top scientists involved in this broad field of research.

As a sponsor of this symposium, ChemPlusChem is organizing a special issue dedicated to Catalytic Systems for Water Splitting. We invite symposium participants and other researchers to contribute and provide a multifacetted "snapshot" of the latest advances in this hot field. The guest editors, Gary Brudvig, Joost Reek, Ken Sakai, Leone Spiccia, and Licheng Sun, will guide the project to ensure its high quality. Submit your best multidisciplinary work by April 30, 2016.

The Editor of ChemPlusChem, Dr. Marisa Spiniello, will be at Pacifichem to discuss publishing with ChemPlusChem and other journals of the ChemPubSoc Europe and ACES families. If you are planning to attend, and would like to set up an appointment, please contact the Editorial Office.

  1. Study of Multiporphyrin Compounds as Colorimetric Sitting-Atop Metal Complexes: Synthesis and Photophysical Studies

    Joana I. T. Costa, Dr. Elisabete Oliveira, Dr. Hugo M. Santos, Dr. Augusto C. Tomé, Dr. Maria G. P. M. S. Neves and Dr. Carlos Lodeiro

    Article first published online: 25 NOV 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201500386

    Sensitive subjects: Mono-, di-, tri-, and hexaporphyrin derivatives (see compound 4 in the figure) were synthesized and their sensorial ability towards metal ions was studied. It was found that they showed an increased sensitivity to Hg2+ ions. The NMR spectroscopy studies suggest that the interaction with the metal ions occurs with the formation of sitting-atop complexes.

  2. Gelatin-Assisted Synthesis of Vaterite Nanoparticles with Higher Surface Area and Porosity as Anticancer Drug Containers In Vitro

    Dr. Anhe Wang, Yang Yang, Xiaoming Zhang, Dr. Xingcen Liu, Wei Cui and Prof. Dr. Junbai Li

    Article first published online: 24 NOV 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201500515

    Holey vaterite nanoparticles! Porous vaterite nanoparticles (VNs) fabricated with gelatin assistance displayed high surface area and improved stability in aqueous solution. Their application as doxorubicin containers and their therapeutic efficacy against cancer cells were investigated in vitro. The vaterite nanoparticles prove to be excellent containers for anticancer drugs after modification by folic acid.

  3. Direct Catalytic Transformation of Biomass Derivatives into Biofuel Component γ-Valerolactone with Magnetic Nickel–Zirconium Nanoparticles

    Dr. Hu Li, Prof. Zhen Fang and Prof. Song Yang

    Article first published online: 19 NOV 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201500492

    Attractive separation: Acid–base bifunctional NiZr nanocatalysts with strong magnetism show high activity and reusability in the transformation of biomass derivatives, including EL, fructose, glucose, cellobiose, and carboxymethyl cellulose, into γ-valerolactone (GVL) with 95.2 % yield and 98 % selectivity (see figure).

  4. A Water-Soluble Copper(II) Complex for the Selective Fluorescence Detection of Nitric Oxide/Nitroxyl and Imaging in Living Cells

    Dr. Xiaolong Sun, Gyoungmi Kim, Prof. Dr. Yufang Xu, Prof. Dr. Juyoung Yoon and Prof. Dr. Tony D. James

    Article first published online: 16 NOV 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201500436

    Turn it on! A water-soluble copper(II) complex was prepared that displays impressive fluorescence response for nitric oxide and nitroxyl over other biologically relevant reactive species under physiological conditions. This sensor system was also used to image exogenous and endogenous NO and HNO in live cells (see figure).

  5. Electrocatalytic Reduction of Carbon Dioxide with a Well-Defined PN3[BOND]Ru Pincer Complex

    Dr. Shixiong Min, Dr. Shahid Rasul, Dr. Huaifeng Li, Dr. David C. Grills, Prof. Kazuhiro Takanabe, Prof. Lain-Jong Li and Prof. Kuo-Wei Huang

    Article first published online: 13 NOV 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201500474

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    Done in a pince: A PN3[BOND]Ru pincer complex (see figure) has been found to show high activity and stability as a molecular electrocatalyst for CO2 reduction to CO and HCOOH in MeCN/H2O.
