Congratulations to …

ChemPlusChem Board Member Eva-Marie Hey-Hawkins, who was recently awarded the Sächsischer Verdienstorden (Order of Merit of the Free State of Saxony). She and her research group are interested in transition metal complexes and their application in catalysis and materials science; organophosphorus compounds; biologically active boron compounds for tumor therapy; and enzyme inhibitors. Hey-Hawkins published a paper in ChemPlusChem on an intriguing phosphorus-rich manganese(I) complex and we look forward to more contributions from her group.

  1. Catalytic Ionic-Liquid Membranes: The Convergence of Ionic-Liquid Catalysis and Ionic-Liquid Membrane Separation Technologies

    Pavel Izák, Felix D. Bobbink, Martin Hulla, Martina Klepic, Karel Friess, Štěpán Hovorka and Prof. Paul J. Dyson

    Version of Record online: 22 SEP 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201700293

    Barriers leading to progress: The convergence of ionic-liquid catalysis and ionic-liquid membrane separation technologies is leading towards the development of catalytically active separation layers, at which valuable chemical transformations are performed simultaneously with product purification through the ionic membrane material (see figure).

  2. Bis(bipyridinium) Salts as Multicolored Electrochromic Devices (pages 1211–1217)

    Dr. Noémi Jordão, Dr. Hugo Cruz, Aida Branco, Prof. Fernando Pina and Dr. Luís C. Branco

    Version of Record online: 18 SEP 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201700229

    Switchable materials: Salts of symmetrical and nonsymmetrical oxobis(bipyridinium) cations with iodide and bistriflimide anions were prepared. The most promising salts were tested as efficient and reversible multicolored electrochromic devices. One salt with a four-carbon ether linker, [(C3O)bpy(C4O)bpy(C3O)]I4, shows very good cycling stability as well as higher chromatic contrast than previously reported diiodide salts (see figure).

  3. Highly Efficient Sorption of Methyl Orange by a Metal–Organic Resin–Alginic Acid Composite (pages 1188–1196)

    Dr. Anastasia D. Pournara, Sofia Rapti, Euaggelia Skliri, Dr. Gerasimos S. Armatas, Dr. Athanassios C. Tsipis and Dr. Manolis J. Manos

    Version of Record online: 14 SEP 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201700278

    Waste not, want not: The composite anion-exchange material MOR-1–HA (see structure) showed an exceptional sorption capacity for methyl orange (MO). For the first time, an ion-exchange column containing a metal–organic sorbent was demonstrated to be highly efficient for the removal of dyes from wastewater.

    The ground-state polarity of rigidified dyes was probed by using UV/Vis absorption and emission, DFT calculations, 1H and 13C NMR spectroscopy, and CV measurements. Variation of donor (dodecyloxy and piperidyl), acceptor (malononitrile and barbiturate), and chromophore sizes influenced the absorption maxima, relative strength of vibronic transitions, solvatochromism as well as the redox behavior owing to a shift of S0 from a neutral form over the cyanine limit to a zwitterionic state (see figure).
