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.

A glowing report: A series of fluorenyl-containing tetrasubstituted ethylenes show morphology-dependent luminescence. Their emission color can be switched between green and blue by means of mechanical grinding and solvent fuming. The transformation between crystalline and amorphous accounts for the luminescence changing (see figure).

A Si of relief: The Pd-catalyzed silylation of aryl chlorides with silylsilatranes proceeds under activator-free conditions and hence displays wide functional group compatibility and allows boryl and siloxy groups to survive. The chloride on palladium is revealed to play an important role in transmetalation from the silylsilatrane to the arylpalladium chloride through strong interaction between the Lewis acidic silicon and the chloride.

All wrapped up! A multidentate macrocycle, carboxylated pillararene (CP), can stabilize gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) in various conditions in which citrate-stabilized AuNPs are not stable. In addition, CP-coated AuNPs exhibit greater peroxidase-like activity than citrate-stabilized AuNPs in the presence of silver cations.

Fair and square: The efficient asymmetric Michael addition/intramolecular cyclization of malononitrile with dienones catalyzed by a chiral bifunctional tertiary amine–squaramide catalyst for the synthesis of chiral 2-amino-4H-chromene-3-carbonitrile derivatives is developed. The corresponding products are obtained in good to excellent yields (up to 99 %) with excellent enantioselectivities (up to 98 % ee) for most of the bisarylidenecyclopentanones.

One thing led to another... Organometallic catalysis and organocatalysis are integrated in the same reaction pot, starting with an abnormal N-heterocyclic carbene based copper catalyst. This catalyst acts as an efficient catalyst for a click reaction to provide a triazole, which acts as an efficient organocatalyst for different organic transformations in a consecutive fashion in the same reaction pot (see figure).
