Initiation of Olefin Metathesis: Reaction of Deca-2,8-diene with Catalysts formed from Me_4Sn-WC1_6 and Me_3Al_2Cl_3-(Ph_3P)_2(NO)_2Cl_2Mo


The initial product of the metathesis of deca-2,8-diene with metathesis catalysts formed from either Me_4Sn–WCl_6 or Me_3Al_2Cl_3–(Ph_3P)_2(NO)_2Cl_2Mo is propene; labelling of the terminal groups of the diene and the alkylating agents gives a labelling pattern in the propene that is best explained in terms of generation of a carbene in the initiation step from the alkylating agent.
