Mission Statement

The Asian Chemical Editorial Society (ACES) is an organization of 13 major chemical societies in Asia and the Pacific. It was founded in 2005 as a conglomeration of chemical societies with the mutual aim of creating a modern publishing forum for research in Asia and coordinating future publishing activities.

The participating societies share a commitment to scientific excellence, to publishing ethics, and to the highest standards in publication, which are the basis for the success of Chemistry—An Asian Journal and its associated journals.

Residual Metal Impurity Aids Facile In Situ Electrochemical Surface Derivatization of Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes

Residual Metal Impurity Aids Facile In Situ Electrochemical Surface Derivatization of Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes

It’s not an impurity, it’s a reagent! A facile in situ electrochemical strategy was developed that uses residual nickel impurities as reactants for anchoring nickel hexacyanoferrate (NiHCF) and Ni(OH)2/NiOOH on the surface of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs; see picture), and the thus-modified SWCNTs showed improved electrocatalytic properties. CV=cyclic voltammetry; GCE=glassy carbon electrode.

Unstrained Carbon-Carbon Bond Cleavage

Unstrained Carbon-Carbon Bond Cleavage

Unstrained melody: The cleavage of unstrained C-C bonds is not only a quite attractive field; it is also a great challenge to organic chemists. This Focus Review highlights the development of unstrained C-C bond-cleavage reactions—categorized as metal or metal-free reactions—and includes the cleavage of single, double, and triple carbon-carbon bonds.

Three-Residue Turn in β-Peptides Nucleated by a 12/10 Helix

Three-Residue Turn in β-Peptides Nucleated by a 12/10 Helix

Beta testers: We report the design and synthesis of β peptides from the 1:1 alternation of β-Caa(r) (C-linked carbo-β-amino acid with a D-ribo furanoside side chain) and β-hGly with a novel ‘β-β-β’ three-residue turn and 14-member hydrogen bonding at the C terminus. The turn is nucleated by a 12/10 helix at the N terminus to form a ‘helix-turn’ motif stabilized by an intraresidue electrostatic interaction between the amide NH and furan oxygen (see figure).
