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. Synthesis, Characterization, and Energetic Studies of Polynitro Aryl-1,2,3-2 H-Triazoles

    Nagarjuna Kommu, A. Sudheer Kumar, J. Raveendra, Vikas D. Ghule and Prof. Dr. Akhila K. Sahoo

    Article first published online: 26 NOV 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/ajoc.201500390

    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).

  2. p-Toluenesulfonic Acid-Mediated Three-Component Reaction “On-Water” Protocol for the Synthesis of Novel Thiadiazolo[2,3-b]quinazolin-6(7H)-ones

    Preeti Wadhwa, Dr. Tanpreet Kaur, Neetu Singh, Prof. Udai P. Singh and Dr. Anuj Sharma

    Article first published online: 26 NOV 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/ajoc.201500397

    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.

  3. Diastereoselective Synthesis of Macrocyclic Spiro and Dispiro-1,4-dithianes, -1,4-oxathianes, and -1,4-dithiepanes through Intramolecular Sulfonium Ylides

    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.

  4. Reaction-Based Mechanistic Investigations of Asymmetric Hetero-Diels–Alder Reactions of Enones with Isatins Catalyzed by Amine-Based Three-Component Catalyst Systems

    Dr. Hai-Lei Cui, Dr. Pandurang V. Chouthaiwale, Dr. Feng Yin and Prof. Dr. Fujie Tanaka

    Article first published online: 25 NOV 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/ajoc.201500412

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    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.

  5. 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

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    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.
