Motivation: The editor sent a rejection after "having evaluated it myself" (apparently, not having proofread the reply for typographical errors), and having deemed it unsuitable for the "broad readership of JACS and recommended sending it to JOC. Similar but more specialized (limited) chemistry was published in the same journal, which appears to have made the editor consider our work "well known" at this time. There are substantial differences in both the outcome and the potential path for that outcome in our work as compared to the published work. Therefore, it seems like the editor may have skimmed through the abstract and possibly one scheme. We did not feel that proper review of a scientific discovery was undertaken.
