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. Thiourea-Catalyzed Addition of Indoles to Aliphatic β,γ-Unsaturated α-Ketoesters

    Verónica Juste-Navarro, Dr. Eugenia Marqués-López and Dr. Raquel P. Herrera

    Article first published online: 7 JUL 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/ajoc.201500154

    Flying thi: A thiourea-catalyzed addition reaction of indoles with aliphatic β,γ-unsaturated α-ketoesters has been developed. This approach is an interesting alternative to obtain aliphatic derivatives that are not accessible by other procedures, thus, being a complementary strategy to previously reported ones.

  2. Cumyl Hydroperoxide-Promoted Oxidative Amidation of 2-Oxoaldehydes with Amines under Metal-Free Conditions for the Synthesis of Unsymmetrical Oxamides

    Yang Zheng, Zhen Zhan, Xu Cheng, Xiaojun Ma, Jie Li, Prof. Dr. Li Hai and Prof. Dr. Yong Wu

    Article first published online: 7 JUL 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/ajoc.201500180

    Cumyl-ative effects: An efficient cumyl hydroperoxide (CHP)-promoted oxidative coupling of 2-oxoaldehydes and amines to give unsymmetrical oxamides has been developed. The reactions proceeded smoothly at room temperature under metal-free conditions and generated the corresponding products in good yields.

  3. Iodine-Catalyzed Facile Synthesis of Pyrrolo- and Indolo[1,2-a]quinoxalines

    Chao Wang, Yun Li, Rui Guo, Jingjing Tian, Cheng Tao, Bin Cheng, Hongyu Wang, Jun Zhang and Prof. Dr. Hongbin Zhai

    Article first published online: 3 JUL 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/ajoc.201500174

    I, too, shall catalyze: An effective and environmentally friendly aerobic oxidative synthesis of pyrrolo- and indolo[1,2-a]quinoxalines using I2 as the catalyst in a one-pot reaction of benzylamines with 1-(2-aminophenyl)pyrroles has been successfully developed.

  4. The Total Synthesis of Heraclemycin B through β-Ketosulfoxide and Aldehyde Annulation

    Kieran D. Jones, James E. Rixson, Brian W. Skelton, Dr. Kersten M. Gericke and Dr. Scott G. Stewart

    Article first published online: 3 JUL 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/ajoc.201500184

    B side: Herein we describe the total synthesis of the natural product heraclemycin B. The synthetic approach to heraclemycin B follows a β-ketosulfoxide and aldehyde annulation route to form the 4-pyranone D ring. A brief study of this annulation is also described.
