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.

    A Wittig comeback: An efficient synthesis of multifunctional alkenes starting from substituted acrylates and aldehydes has been developed via phosphine-catalyzed Wittig reactions. The reactions proceed smoothly to afford the desired products in good to excellent yields as single stereoisomers.

  2. Palladium-Catalyzed Highly Chemoselective Cascade Coupling-Cyclization of Allenol Derivatives and Aryl Halides for the Construction of Dihydrobenzofuranols or Chromanols and Indolinols

    Cycle-couple: A palladium-catalyzed, highly chemoselective, cascade cyclization-coupling reaction of allenol derivatives and aryl iodides was developed. The corresponding dihybenzofuranols, chromanols, and indolinols were produced in good to high yields.

  3. Transition-Metal-Free Synthesis of Polysubstituted Cyclopropane Derivatives from N-Tosylhydrazones and their Cytotoxic Activities

    : The synthesis of various tetrasubstituted cyclopropane derivatives was accomplished with good yields by using N-tosylhydrazones and electron-deficient olefin partners. This protocol was further extended in a one-pot manner allowing the use of two different activated olefins. Cyclopropane derivative 4 y was found to have good antiproliferative activity against human colon tumor (HCT116) cells, with a GI50 value in the submicromolar range.

  4. Stereoselective Total Synthesis of Myriocin Using Rhodium(II)-Catalyzed C−H Amination Followed by Alkylation

    Its a myri-cle: The stereoselective total synthesis of myriocin was achieved by using the Du Bois RhII-catalyzed C−H amination of a sulfamate followed by alkylation. This synthesis is the first application of Du Bois’ procedure for the construction of a quaternary chiral center.

  5. Palladium-Catalyzed Double Ullmann Reaction: An Approach towards Tetraphenylenes

    Phen-d for yourself: A palladium-catalyzed double Ullmann coupling reaction for the preparation of tetraphenylenes has been developed. Twelve tetraphenylene derivatives were synthesized from the corresponding 2,2′-diiodobiaryls in 13–51 % yield. The mechanism of these palladium-catalyzed double coupling reactions is discussed.
