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.
A sister journal of Angewandte Chemie and Chemistry—A European Journal
A sister journal of the European Journal of Organic Chemistry
For the publication of the AsianJOC, ACES is joined by the Korean Society of Organic Synthesis.
Supporting Organization: ChemPubSoc Europe
ACES supports the publication of the ChemPubSoc Europe journals Chemistry—A European Journal, the European Journal of Organic Chemistry, and ChemSusChem.

Competent composites: Cu/Sn/C composite nanofiber anodes were fabricated in a dual-nozzle electrospinning process. Electrodes exhibit high reversible capacities of 490 and 220 mA h g−1 over 600 cycles (for Li-ion batteries) and 200 cycles (for Na-ion batteries), respectively. Due to benefits of the Cu/C matrix and fibrous nanostructure, Cu/Sn/C fiber electrodes improve electric conductivity and cycle stability (see figure).

Origins of species: A bidentate hydrogen-bonding interaction between the tertiary N+-H and nitrosocarbonyl groups account for the high N selectivity, whilst the enantioselectivity is determined by facial-selective attack on the (E)- and (Z)-enamines.

Do not pass GO: A GO–vitamin-based hydrogel acted as a nanoreactor for the synthesis of various nanoparticles (Au, Ag, and Pd) inside the GO and RGO gel matrices. A hybrid RGO–vitaminB2 gel with Pd nanoparticles was a potential catalyst for Suzuki–Miyaura cross-coupling reactions. A simple and efficient technique was employed to isolate the catalyst, which endowed it with very high recyclability.

Supramolecular modifier and stabilizer: Self-assembly of N-fluorenyl-9-methoxycarbonyl glutamic acid (Fmoc-Glu) in water generates metastable single-wall nanotubes, which entangle and bundle together to form unstable gels that shrink with time and finally result in lamellar crystalline precipitates. Adding melamine as modifier and stabilizer stabilized the self-assembled nanotubes and gave a supergel (see picture).

Bring me sunshine: New sensitizers with indoline as donor and a 2,1,3-benzothiadiazole (BTD)/[1,2,5]thiadiazolo[3,4-c]pyridine (PT) moiety as the auxiliary acceptor were synthesized. By fine-tuning the auxiliary acceptor, we obtained a photoelectric conversion efficiency of 8.53 % for a 2-(1,1-dicyanomethylene)rhodanine-based dye-sensitized solar cell (DSSC; see figure). The results indicate that the incorporation of BTD can improve the DSSC performance.
