AsianJOC impact factor reaches 3.318

The AsianJOC received its first full (two-year) impact factor of 3.318 in the 2014 Journal Citation Reports. This is almost a 45% increase on the partial impact factor received lat year and is testament to the way that the journal has been embraced by the community as a leading venue for organic chemistry in only three years.

  1. Transition-Metal-Free Synthesis of Nitrogen Containing Heterocycles With Fully Substituted N-fused Pyrrole Rings

    Debanjan Bakshi and Dr. Anand Singh

    Article first published online: 20 NOV 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/ajoc.201500324

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    Variety is the spice of heterocycles: An efficient and convenient synthesis of C-2 alkylated pyrrolo-fused heterocycles is reported. This transition-metal-free route addresses the challenges of incorporating C-2 substituents in the indolizine sub-structure, in addition to providing a high yielding and general synthesis of pyrrolo[1,2-a]quinolines.

  4. A Facile Synthesis of 1,5-Disubstituted Tetrazole Peptidomimetics by Desulfurization/Electrocyclization of Thiopeptides

    Girish Prabhu, Dr. Govindappa Nagendra, N. R. Sagar, Rumpa Pal, Prof. Dr. Tayur N. Guru Row and Prof. Dr. Vommina V. Sureshbabu

    Article first published online: 16 NOV 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/ajoc.201500384

    1,5-Disubstituted tetrazole has been introduced into peptide backbones by a simple reaction: desulfurization of thiopeptides by using HgCl2 in the presence of NaN3/triethylamine in DMF. A series of tetrazole peptidomimetics were obtained in good yields. The protocol was also successfully used for the selective insertion of tetrazole into peptide–thiopeptide hybrids. The structures of one thiopeptide and two tetrazole peptidomimetics were confirmed by X-ray crystallography.

  5. Palladium-Catalyzed C−H Bond Ortho Acylation/Annulation with Toluene Derivatives

    Lingyun Yang, Li Han, Bin Xu, Leilei Zhao, Prof. Jinpei Zhou and Prof. Huibin Zhang

    Article first published online: 10 NOV 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/ajoc.201500417

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    2 birds 1 stone: A simple and efficient approach to synthesize 3-hydroxyisoindolin-1-ones through a direct C−H bond ortho acylation/annulation has been developed. In this protocol, toluene derivatives can be used as reactants as well as solvents. A variety of substrates are well tolerated using the Pd/TBHP system (TBHP=tert-butyl hydroperoxide).
