Motivation: While it took a rather long time for the first decision this appears to be due to the review of the first referee. This reviewer decided that this paper was too similar to some of our previous work and therefore did not merit publication in this journal. Although the topics were similar, the work and subsequent results were markedly different and this was agreed by both reviewer 2 and reviewer 3 who was brought in to decide on the manuscript. Some of reviewer 1's comments regarding the format of the article and figures indicated a lack of knowledge regarding the structure required for submission to this journal

Motivation: In order to make it more personal, ChemComm includes a manuscript summary sentence in the editor's own words in the desk rejection letter. Our manuscript has been found of insufficient novelty. The summary sentence summarized only one of many experiments described in the manuscript and referenced a substance that was not discussed in the manuscript. We felt that instead of promised "careful evaluation", our manuscript has been subjected to a cursory glance that led to a false and inadequate summary of the manuscript. In our experience, sloppy and incompetent are the words to describe the initial assessment process at ChemComm
