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.

Quite a character: Novel sulfur and selenium-bridged circulenes were prepared from octabromotetraphenylene. Computational results show that the central eight-membered rings in these circulenes have a remarkably high antiaromatic character.

You have to be practical: Practical syntheses of 2-aminoquinoline-3-carboamides and pyrimido[4,5-b]quinolin-4-ones via Cu(OAc)2-catalyzed and K2CO3-promoted one-pot multicomponent reactions of 2-bromobenzaldehydes with cyanoacetamides and aqueous ammonia/aldehydes were developed.

Transferring on through: Dendritic ionic liquids based on imidazolium-modified poly(aryl ether) dendrimers are constructed. Numerous ionic groups at the periphery greatly affect the physical properties of the dendrimers, which results in lower glass transition temperatures, reversible phase-transfer properties, and efficient transport capabilities for organic molecules.

Water, water everywhere: Recent progress in single-site Ru catalysts for water oxidation is briefly described. The mechanism of the O-O bond formation and catalyst design for low-overpotential water oxidation are discussed with a special emphasis on the formation and reaction of high-valent Ru–oxo species (e.g., RuV=O) as the key intermediate in the reaction (see figure).
