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.

Tri as you might: A series of di-, tri-, and tetranitro-substituted N-aryl-1,2,3-2 H-triazole derivatives are synthesized (see figure). The heats of formation of the di-/trinitro compounds are positive (809.24 and 818.08 kJ mol−1), their thermal stability is high (320 and 273 °C), and their detonation velocities are good (8020 and 7840 m s−1).

Three to one: The p-toluenesulfonic acid-mediated “on-water” multicomponent reaction sequence for the synthesis of thiadiazolo[2,3-b]quinazolinones is described. The reaction between 5-aryl-1,3,4-thiadiazol-2-amines, cyclic 1,3-dicarbonyls and aldehydes proceeds with microwave irradiation.

Quick Macrocycles: The synthesis of functionalized C2-symmetric as well as unsymmetrical macrocyclic spiro and dispiro-1,4-dithianes, -1,4-oxathianes, and -1,4-dithiepanes was achieved with high diastereoselectivity by employing diazocarbonyl compounds in the presence of a rhodium(II) acetate dimer catalyst at room temperature.
- Reaction-Based Mechanistic Investigations of Asymmetric Hetero-Diels–Alder Reactions of Enones with Isatins Catalyzed by Amine-Based Three-Component Catalyst Systems

Three is better than one: Reaction-based mechanistic investigations were performed for the asymmetric hetero-Diels–Alder reactions of enones with isatins catalyzed by an amine-based three-component system. The reaction route was likely a kinetically controlled [4+2] cycloaddition of the in situ-generated enamine of the enone as diene and isatin as dienophile. All three components played important roles for the catalysis and the stereocontrol.
- 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
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.
