Journal of Organic Chemistry is an international, peer-reviewed, open access online journal encompassing all topics within the field of organic chemistry. It aims to provide in-depth reviews on the current progress in the fields of asymmetric synthesis, organo-metallic chemistry, bioorganic chemistry, heterocyclic chemistry, natural product chemistry and analytical methods in organic chemistry. It provides a platform for rapid publication of quality research articles, reviews and brief communications contributions that concerns with analytical characterization, advanced techniques and the studies of properties for new synthesized molecules will also be highlighted.

Journal of Organic Chemistry Volume 1 Issue 1 published articles examining New Approaches for the Synthesis of Thiophenes, Thiazole, Pyran Derivatives, and their Antitumor Evaluation [1] and Value Added Products from Pyrolysis of Sludges from Pork Production [2].

Mohareb et al. [1]., presented new approaches for the synthesis of thiophenes, thiazole, pyran derivatives, and their anti-tumor evaluation. This research aims to a novel synthesis of thiophene, pyrans, azoles and azines derivatives in which authors started with cyclopentanone as starting material which reacted with malononitrile and ethyl cyanoacetate. The synthesized compounds were confirmed by spectral and analytical data. The biological evaluation of compounds is tested on three different tumor cell lines such as breast adenocarcinoma, CNS cancer, and non-small lung cancer and was compared to the inhibitory effect of Doxorubicin. And the results revealed that compounds 7, 13b and 17b have the highest inhibitory effect.

Ngoc Yen Nhi Ta. [2]., studied value added products from pyrolysis of sludges from pork production. Treatment of waste products from pork production results in two types of sludge. The first is high-fat sludge from physical treatment and dewatering. That sludge is further treated by a proprietary biological process, resulting in a second type of sludge that generates fewer odors. Pyrolysis of both sludges yields an oily distillate, an aqueous distillate, and biochar. The oily distillate from the physical treatment consists primarily of aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons that are components of diesel fuel, and thus, has commercial potential as a fuel precursor. The oil from the biological treatment is a complex mixture with less commercial potential. The biochar from both types of sludge is evaluated for its potential as a fuel and as a soil amendment. Two types of pork sludge were evaluated for fuel and biochar production. The physically treated sludge generated the highest oil yield, which consisted primarily of aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons. The aliphatic component is chemically similar to the product obtained from brown grease. The biologically treated sludge is a potential source of commodity chemicals. Biochar from both sludges meet the EPA standards for heavy metals for land applications.
