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.

Base-mediated regio-, stereo-, and chemoselective nucleophilic addition of thiophenols onto bromo-substituted aryl alkynes over S-arylation of aryl halides is described. Competitive experiments showed that hydroamination is preferred over hydrothiolation. The stereoselectivity, competitive nucleophilic addition, and mechanistic pathway were corroborated by experimental and computational evidence.

Hepster: Inspired by the biosynthesis of heparan sulfate (HS), we present a direct epimerization approach to l-iduronic acid synthons (IdoA) from the corresponding C5 epimers, d-glucuronic acids (GlcA). Molecular mechanisms were extensively studied. Based on this approach, GlcA and IdoA synthons for the synthesis of fondaparinux were convergently prepared in 14 steps.
