ChemPlusChem 10/2016: Catalytic Systems for Water Splitting
This special issue coordinated by guest editors Gary Brudvig, Joost Reek, Ken Sakai, Leone Spiccia, and Licheng Sun is associated with last year′s Pacifichem Symposium #76 entitled Molecular Catalysis of Water Splitting Reactions. Highlights of this issue include VIP contributions from Shigeyuki Masaoka on water oxidation with a Cu4 complex and from Masayuki Yagi on TiO2 photoanodes, and a Review by Koji Tanaka on artificial photosynthetic systems. The front cover accompanies a Full Paper by Rony Khnayzer focusing on a ruthenium photocatalyst.
This issue is free to view in October!

Say goodnight, parasite: Cymantrene, cyrhetrene and ferrocene nucleobase conjugates have been synthesized and studied by electrochemistry and DFT calculations. Some of these compounds exhibit significant activity against Trypanosoma brucei, a causative parasite of sleeping sickness (see figure).
- Superior Activity of Isomorphously Substituted MOFs with MIL-100(M=Al, Cr, Fe, In, Sc, V) Structure in the Prins Reaction: Impact of Metal Type

Superior catalytic performance of MIL-100(V): The catalytic performance of the MIL-100(M) isostructural series (M=Al, Cr, Fe, In, Sc, V) has been investigated for the Prins condensation of β-pinene and paraformaldehyde to produce nopol (see figure). The catalytic activity of MIL-100(M) correlates linearly with the concentration of accessible Lewis acid sites. Its high activity, stability, and recyclability make MIL-100(V) a promising material for application in various heterogeneous catalytic processes.
