Abstract

Highly active N-heterocyclic carbene-coordinated catalysts may be synthesized and used in situ, without requiring prior isolation of the catalyst. Activation of this in situ catalyst with ethereal HCl dramatically reduces the reaction times required for high conversions. A variety of α,β-unsaturated carbonyl-containing substrates participate readily in cross and ring-closing metathesis reactions using this preparation.
