Ruthenium benzylidene complexes containing a carbodicarbene (CDC) ligand are reported. Mechanistic studies indicate that the CDC ligand can dissociate under relatively mild conditions to afford active olefin metathesis catalysts. These catalysts were found to be effective at ring-closing metathesis (RCM) and ring-opening metathesis polymerization (ROMP) reactions.
