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.

    I, too, shall catalyze: An effective and environmentally friendly aerobic oxidative synthesis of pyrrolo- and indolo[1,2-a]quinoxalines using I2 as the catalyst in a one-pot reaction of benzylamines with 1-(2-aminophenyl)pyrroles has been successfully developed.

  2. The Total Synthesis of Heraclemycin B through β-Ketosulfoxide and Aldehyde Annulation

    Kieran D. Jones, James E. Rixson, Brian W. Skelton, Dr. Kersten M. Gericke and Dr. Scott G. Stewart

    B side: Herein we describe the total synthesis of the natural product heraclemycin B. The synthetic approach to heraclemycin B follows a β-ketosulfoxide and aldehyde annulation route to form the 4-pyranone D ring. A brief study of this annulation is also described.

    Tailored calixarenes: Calixarenes are widely used as molecular platforms in supramolecular chemistry. Due to the presence of multiple identical functional groups, their selective functionalization is highly challenging. This review describes rational methods leading to a high degree of selectivity and classifies them into strategies. Many of these strategies are conceptually general and could be applied to other macrocyclic platforms.
