Japan vs. Germany: 1-0

Just a minute ago I was looking through the early view papers for Angewandte Chemie and I spotted these two papers virtually back to back. Japan wins by three days. Can you spot the difference? D!

looks like hayashi made a better optimisation. dioxane seems to be superior and seems to allow lower catalyst loadings.

how much of a coincidence is it that two groups send in rather similar works in two weeks distance from each other?

I've seen similar stuff before but never close to identical graphical abstract and in the same journal!

actually, there was a very similar case in the very same journal probably before graphical abstracts, with a German and a Dutch group publishing their work on propylenimine dendrimers.

one of the papers is
E. M. M. de Brabander-van den Berg and E. W. Meijer, Angew. Chem.,
Int. Ed. Engl., 1993, 32, 1308, Angew. Chem., 1993, 105, 1370

Very similar situation to Keck and Wender's individual bryostatin work in JACS issue 21
