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 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.

Spotlight on coordination polymers: ChemPlusChem is pleased to present its special issue on coordination polymers/metal–organic frameworks (MOFs), guest-edited by Stuart Batten, Banglin Chen and Jagadese J. Vittal. This issue features MOFs through various applications as sensors and in drug delivery, gas storage, catalysis etc.
- Hydrated Proton-Conductive Metal–Organic Frameworks
Dr. Masaaki Sadakiyo, Dr. Teppei Yamada and Prof. Hiroshi Kitagawa
Version of Record online: 26 JUL 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201600243
Finding the way through: Metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) have emerged as a new class of proton conductors. Hydrated proton-conductive MOFs show not only high proton conductivity, but also structural visibility of proton-conducting pathways inside the materials owing to their high crystallinity (see figure). Studies on the design, synthesis, and proton-conductive properties of MOFs with hydrated proton-conductive systems are introduced.
- Light-Induced Cell-Sheet Harvest on TiO2 Films Sensitized with Carbon Quantum Dots
Xiaozhao Wang, Prof. Kui Cheng, Prof. Wenjian Weng, Prof. Huiming Wang and Dr. Jun Lin
Version of Record online: 22 JUL 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201600202
Break away: Carbon quantum dots (CQDs) have been incorporated as a sensitizer into TiO2 films to regulate the light-induced cell-detachment performance. This incorporation inhibits charge recombination of the TiO2 system under UV illumination, which increases the negative surface potential and changes the secondary structure of adsorbed extracellular protein molecules, and consequently results in a faster release of cells (see figure).
- Membrane-Mediated Protein–Protein Interactions of Cholesterol Side-Chain Cleavage Cytochrome P450 with its Associated Electron Transport Proteins
Dr. Clemens Kubeil, Dr. Joyee Chun In Yeung, Assoc. Prof. Robert C. Tuckey, Prof. Raymond J. Rodgers and Assoc. Prof. Lisandra L. Martin
Version of Record online: 22 JUL 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201600272
It′s bound to work: A simple model for the interactions between P450scc, adrenodoxin, and adrenodoxin reductase at 1,2-dimyristoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine membranes containing cholesterol has been developed using a quartz crystal microbalance with dissipation monitoring (see figure). A functional role is proposed for the inner mitochondrial membrane in cholesterol side-chain cleavage by providing a 2D platform for the key proteins to assemble into a metabolon complex.
