Ruthenium-based olefin metathesis catalysts bearing new N-heterocyclic carbenes


Olefin metathesis catalysts based on the L2X2Ru=CHR scaffold have contributed significantly to the expanding spectrum of olefin metathesis applications. Recent work has shown that catalysts bearing an N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) ligand exhibit enhancecl metathesis activity over previous ruthenium-based catalysts. The synthesis and activity of olefin metathesis catalysts containing new NHC ligands will be presented.
