The Asian Chemical Editorial Society (ACES) is an organization of 13 major chemical societies in Asia and the Pacific. It was founded in 2005 as a conglomeration of chemical societies with the mutual aim of creating a modern publishing forum for research in Asia and coordinating future publishing activities.
The participating societies share a commitment to scientific excellence, to publishing ethics, and to the highest standards in publication, which are the basis for the success of Chemistry—An Asian Journal and its associated journals.
A sister journal of Angewandte Chemie and Chemistry—A European Journal
A sister journal of the European Journal of Organic Chemistry
For the publication of the AsianJOC, ACES is joined by the Korean Society of Organic Synthesis.
Supporting Organization: ChemPubSoc Europe
ACES supports the publication of the ChemPubSoc Europe journals Chemistry—A European Journal, the European Journal of Organic Chemistry, and ChemSusChem.

It’s not an impurity, it’s a reagent! A facile in situ electrochemical strategy was developed that uses residual nickel impurities as reactants for anchoring nickel hexacyanoferrate (NiHCF) and Ni(OH)2/NiOOH on the surface of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs; see picture), and the thus-modified SWCNTs showed improved electrocatalytic properties. CV=cyclic voltammetry; GCE=glassy carbon electrode.

Unstrained melody: The cleavage of unstrained C-C bonds is not only a quite attractive field; it is also a great challenge to organic chemists. This Focus Review highlights the development of unstrained C-C bond-cleavage reactions—categorized as metal or metal-free reactions—and includes the cleavage of single, double, and triple carbon-carbon bonds.

Beta testers: We report the design and synthesis of β peptides from the 1:1 alternation of β-Caa(r) (C-linked carbo-β-amino acid with a D-ribo furanoside side chain) and β-hGly with a novel ‘β-β-β’ three-residue turn and 14-member hydrogen bonding at the C terminus. The turn is nucleated by a 12/10 helix at the N terminus to form a ‘helix-turn’ motif stabilized by an intraresidue electrostatic interaction between the amide NH and furan oxygen (see figure).
