For the past two years, AsianJOC has brought you excellent research for free. This trial period is now over. Please consider a subscription or recommend the journal to your librarian. AsianJOC is owned by ACES, a consortium of Asian chemical societies. The individual societies will benefit from the revenues and so will the communities they serve.

There will be an updated version of our iPad app in the App Store in a few days. It fully supports subscriptions and will also work on the iPhone.

    Worth its salt: Iminium salts derived from substituted cinnamaldehydes and imidazolidinones have been synthesized and characterized by X-ray crystallography. Kinetic investigations of their reactions with cyclic ketene acetals were performed to quantify their electrophilic reactivity.

  3. A Practical Synthesis of Chiral Oxazolines through a Highly Diastereoselective Coupling–Cyclization Reaction of N-(Buta-2,3-dienyl)amides and Aryl Iodides

    Article first published online: 8 APR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/ajoc.201400023

    It’s got a ring to it! A highly trans diastereoselective synthesis of 2,4,5-trisubstituted oxazoline derivatives is described, which proceed through a palladium-catalyzed coupling–cyclization reaction of N-(buta-2,3-dienyl)amides with aromatic iodides. The highly enantioenriched oxazoline derivatives were easily prepared with excellent 1,2-induction by using optically active substrates. DMF=N,N-dimethylformamide.

  4. Toward the Design of Halide- and Metal-Free Ionic-Liquid Catalysts for the Cycloaddition of CO2 to Epoxides

    Manuele Galvan, Maurizio Selva, Alvise Perosa and Marco Noè

    Article first published online: 8 APR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/ajoc.201402044

    A new epoch: An innovative sustainable protocol for the cycloaddition of CO2 to epoxides was devised through a class of carbonate and carboxylate phosphonium salts (ionic liquids). These compounds were prepared by a halide- and metal-free synthesis, and act as efficient catalysts in the cycloaddition reaction.

  5. Synthesis of opp-Dibenzohexaphyrins( by Retro-Diels–Alder Reaction

    opp­ it!­ opp-Dibenzo [26]- and [28]hexaphyrins( were synthesized in good yields using retro-Diels–Alder reactions of the corresponding opp-bis(bicyclo[2.2.2]octadiene)-fused precursors. Comparison of the optical properties of dibenzo-annulated and non-annulated bis-rhodium(I) complexes revealed that opp-dibenzo annulation causes modest but distinct spectral red shifts due to extension of the conjugated system.
