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.

Get invol-ved: Involudispirones A (1) and B (2), a pair of cytotoxic sesterterpene stereoisomers containing a 1,2-dioxadispiro[220.127.116.11]hexadecane ring, were isolated from the rhizomes of Stahlianthus involucratus. Their structures and absolute configurations were established on the basis of spectroscopic data and chemical conversion.
- Synthesis of Naphtho-Fused Imidazo[1,2-a]pyridines through Copper-Catalyzed Cascade Reactions
Hitesh Kumar Saini, Pinku Kaswan, Kasiviswanadharaju Pericherla and Prof. Anil Kumar
Article first published online: 7 OCT 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/ajoc.201500297
More pi: A library of π-extended naptho-fused imidazo[1,2-a]pyridines were assembled by a copper-catalyzed cascade reaction using simple starting materials and mild reaction conditions. This protocol has high functional group tolerance and afforded the heterocyclic products in moderate to excellent yields (35–91 %). Photophysical studies show that these naphtho[1′,2′:4,5]imidazo[1,2-a]pyridines emit with high fluorescence quantum yields. EWG=electron-withdrawing group.
- You have free access to this contentThe Sialic Acids Waltz: Novel Stereoselective Isomerization of the 1,7-Lactones of N-Acetylneuraminic Acids into the Corresponding γ-Lactones and Back to the Free Sialic Acids
Dr. Paola Rota, Prof. Pietro Allevi and Prof. Luigi Anastasia
Article first published online: 6 OCT 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/ajoc.201500304
Free to dance? Sialic acid derivatives are important molecules in a range of biological processes. A high-yielding internal rearrangement of the 1,7-lactone of N-acetylneuraminic acid into its γ-lactone is reported. This is complemented by the subsequent conversion of that γ-lactone into the free parent sialic acid under optimized acidic and basic conditions.
- Rapid Access to New Thiazepinyl and Oxazepinyl Phosphonates through a Green Pudovik Reaction
Debasmita Saha, Dr. Tanpreet Kaur, Neetu Singh, Prof. Udai P. Singh and Dr. Anuj Sharma
