ChemPlusChem Board Members in the News

We congratulate three ChemPlusChem board members for receiving recognition for their top-notch research.

Michal Hocek (Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic and Co-Chair of our Editorial Board) has been awarded a Praemium Academiae by the Czech Academy of Sciences, their highest honor for an individual scientist. We are proud to have him among our authors for his work on the electrochemical detection of DNA and the redox labeling of DNA.

Krzysztof Matyjaszewski (Carnegie Mellon University) has received the 2015 Dreyfus Prize in the Chemical Sciences for his work on atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP), the most important advance in polymer synthesis in half a century. One of his recent publications describes an electrochemically mediated ATRP.

Nico Sommerdijk (Eindhoven University of Technology and Co-Chair of our Editorial Board) has been honored by the Royal Society of Chemistry with the Soft Matter and Biophysical Chemistry Award 2015. He described the biomimetic mineralization of calcium phosphate in our journal.

  1. P3-Type Layered Sodium-Deficient Nickel–Manganese Oxides: A Flexible Structural Matrix for Reversible Sodium and Lithium Intercalation

    Maria Kalapsazova, Dr. Gregorio F. Ortiz, Prof. Jose L. Tirado, Dr. Oleksandr Dolotko, Prof. Ekaterina Zhecheva, Dr. Diana Nihtianova, Dr. Lyuben Mihaylov and Prof. Radostina Stoyanova

    Squeeze in! Sodium-deficient nickel–manganese oxides exhibit a layered structure, which is flexible enough to acquire different layer stacking. Specific features of the P3-type structure for reversible and fast sodium and lithium intercalation are demonstrated; this property contributes to the design of low-cost electrodes for both sodium- and lithium-ion batteries (see figure).

  2. Thermodynamically Favorable Conversion of Hydrogen Sulfide into Valuable Products through Reaction with Sodium Naphthalenide

    Waste not, want not: The chemical waste hydrogen sulfide (H2S) is notorious for its production in many industries, harming creatures, corroding equipment, poisoning catalysts, and requiring energy-intensive and cost-ineffective abatements. Now a thermodynamically favorable process can convert H2S into value-added energy materials.

They present the very best multidisciplinary chemistry by speakers at the Golden Jubilee Chemistry Conference and by others based in Singapore. Enjoy this excellent collection of articles.

  4. Material Clocking by Silica Nanoparticle Precipitation in Solution Phase that is Tunable by Organic Molecules

    Dr. Masamichi Miyagawa and Prof. Dr. Masahiko Yamaguchi

    Article first published online: 21 JUL 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201500300

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    Molecular tuning: A suspension of silica (P)-nanoparticles in the presence of organic molecules in solution exhibits a material clocking phenomenon during delayed precipitation (see figure). Analysis of the process shows no change during a certain period, and then an abrupt stair-shaped kinetic change with precipitation. The delay in the precipitation can be reset by sonication, and can be tuned by the structure of molecules added to the (P)-nanoparticle suspension.

  5. Transesterification of Tributyrin and Dehydration of Fructose over a Carbon-Based Solid Acid Prepared by Carbonization and Sulfonation of Glucose

    Chuanxu Wang, Prof. Fulong Yuan, Lijing Liu, Dr. Xiaoyu Niu and Prof. Yujun Zhu

    Article first published online: 17 JUL 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201500261

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    So solid! A carbon-based sulfonated solid acid is prepared through a facile method of simultaneous carbonization and sulfonation of D-glucose (see figure). The catalyst shows excellent activity for the transesterification of tributyrin and the dehydration of fructose to 5-hydroxymenthylfurfural (5-HMF).
