Chelated ruthenium catalysts can facilitate highly chemoselective olefin metathesis. Terminal and internal Z olefins reacted selectively to form new Z olefins in the presence of internal E olefins. Chemoselectivity for terminal olefins was also observed over both sterically hindered and electronically deactivated alkenes.
