Why publish in ChemPlusChem?

ChemPlusChem is a general chemistry journal focused on multidisciplinary research. Articles cover results from at least two different aspects (subfields) of chemistry or one of chemistry and one of another scientific discipline (one chemistry topic plus another one, hence the title ChemPlusChem). All submissions undergo rigorous peer review by experts in the field to ensure the highest quality, relevance, significance, and validity. As a ChemPubSoc Europe journal, ChemPlusChem shares the commitment to scientific excellence and to publishing ethics.

Features include free color, rapid processing before and after acceptance, Cover Profiles, Early Career Series and Interviews, Special Issues, OnlineOpen options available.

  1. Photostable, Oxygen-Sensitive Optical Probe Based on a Homonuclear Terbium(III) Complex Covalently Bound to Functionalized Polydimethylsiloxane

    Dr. Rafael D. L. Gaspar, Dr. Jorge H. S. K. Monteiro, Prof. Dr. Ivo M. Raimundo Jr., Prof. Dr. Italo O. Mazali and Prof. Dr. Fernando A. Sigoli

    Article first published online: 4 SEP 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201500296

    Oxygen sensitive: The TbIII-based sensor (see figure) showed green emission and transparency in the visible range. The optically sensitive probe was photostable under excitation at 350 nm and showed high oxygen sensitivity, I0/I100, equal to 8.9 at 1 atm. Also, its reversibility was demonstrated after several cycles ranging from 100 % N2 to 100 % O2 with response time of 8.5 s and recovery time of 49.5 s.

  2. 5-(3′,4′-Dicarboxylphenoxy)isophthalate/5-(2′,3′-Dicarboxylphenoxy)isophthalate-Based 3D Cadmium(II) Coordination Polymers: Synthesis, Structure, and Sensing of Nitrobenzene

    Dr. Yan-Ning Wang, Prof. Jie-Hui Yu and Prof. Ji-Qing Xu

    Article first published online: 3 SEP 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201500308

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    Shape coordination: Five 5-(3′,4′-dicarboxylphenoxy)isophthalate/5-(2′,3′-dicarboxylphenoxy)isophthalate-based 3D CdII coordination polymers are described (see figure). The effects of the structures on the sensing ability for nitrobenzene NB have also been investigated. Revealing all compounds can serve as fluorescence probes to sense NB at ppm concentrations.

  3. High CO2/CH4 Selectivity of a Flexible Copper(II) Porous Coordination Polymer under Humid Conditions

    Prof. Shin-ichiro Noro, Prof. Ryotaro Matsuda, Dr. Yuh Hijikata, Yasutaka Inubushi, Prof. Sadamu Takeda, Prof. Susumu Kitagawa, Yukiko Takahashi, Masashi Yoshitake, Dr. Kazuya Kubo and Prof. Takayoshi Nakamura

    Watertight: A flexible and hydrophobic copper(II) porous coordination polymer has been designed and developed. When used as a material to separate CO2 and CH4, it has considerably high CO2 selectivity among other reported porous materials (see figure). In addition, the permanence of its high selectivity is exhibited in mixed-gas adsorption experiments even under humid conditions.

  4. Grafting of ZnS:Mn-Doped Nanocrystals and an Anticancer Drug onto Graphene Oxide for Delivery and Cell Labeling

    Sanghamitra Dinda, Dr. Mitali Kakran, Jialiu Zeng, Thankiah Sudhaharan, Sohail Ahmed, Debajyoti Das and Prof. Subramanian Tamil Selvan

    Article first published online: 1 SEP 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201500349

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    New inroads in theranostics: The grafting of fluorescent ZnS:Mn-doped nanocrystals and the anticancer drug doxorubicin onto graphene oxide can be used for cell labeling and drug delivery applications. The nanocomposite particles exhibit drug entrapment efficiency of 100% and cancer cell killing efficiency of 85%. The particles label the perinuclear region of HeLa cells with yellow fluorescence (see figure).
