More advances on ruthenium-based olefin metathesis catalysts available

There are many recent changes in catalyst architecture offering improved productivity and advances on ruthenium-based olefin metathesis catalysts

Many examples of olefin metathesis processing have been described to date confirming that this technology can be successfully implemented after focused optimisation efforts along with selection of a catalyst matching substrate and reaction conditions requirements   Many ruthenium-based olefin metathesis catalysts are now commercially available, facilitating metathesis technology application in both academia and industry

 

Fine changes in the catalyst architectures often result in dramatic productivity improvements. For example, bulkier ligands shield the ruthenium metal centre from unproductive coordination, effectively stabilising the catalyst in the presence of otherwise troublesome functional groups
