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.

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.

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

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).
