ChemPlusChem 8/2016: Coordination Polymers/MOFs
We, along with guest editors Stuart Batten, Banglin Chen, and JJ Vittal, are pleased to present this special issue on metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) and coordination polymers. The 33 papers gathered here illustrate the breadth of the field. Topics covered include MOF-based chemical sensors (Review by Hai-Long Jiang, Full Paper by Chuan-De Wu), MOF-based materials in catalysis (Communications by Omar Farha and Dan Zhao), proton-conductive MOFs (Minireview by Hiroshi Kitagawa), and rotaxanes within MOFs (Full Paper by Stephen Loeb). Research on MOFs as drug carriers conducted by Guodong Qian is featured on the cover and in the cover profile.
This issue is free to view in August!

- Palladium Nanoparticles Supported on Fibrous Silica (KCC-1-PEI/Pd): A Sustainable Nanocatalyst for Decarbonylation Reactions
Dr. Pintu K. Kundu, Mahak Dhiman, Atanu Modak, Prof. Arindam Chowdhury, Prof. Vivek Polshettiwar and Prof. Debabrata Maiti

More fiber in a catalyst! A practical and convenient decarbonylation of a variety of aromatic, heteroaromatic, and alkenyl aldehydes with palladium nanoparticles supported on novel, fibrous nanosilica, named KCC-1-PEI/Pd, has been developed (see figure). Complete conversion of aldehyde functionalities into deformylated products is achieved and this method eliminates further purification of products after isolation.

- Surprisingly Big Rectification Ratios for a Very Small Unimolecular Rectifier
Joseph E. Meany, Marcus S. Johnson, Prof. Stephen A. Woski and Prof. Robert M. Metzger

Large ratio, small size: Presented is the first example of a new class of donor–σ–acceptor rectifiers: hemibiquinones (HBQs). HBQs possess donor and acceptor moieties that are electronically isolated by inter-ring torsion. A HBQ–dinitrile self-assembles on a template-stripped gold surface through directed chemisorption forming a 1.1 nm-thick monolayer. Rectification is measured through the monolayer or single molecules by using three different top electrode arrangements.
