Ruthenium-Catalyzed Ring-Closing Metathesis to Form Tetrasubstituted Olefins


Increased efficiency for ring-closing metathesis to form tetrasubstituted olefins using N-heterocyclic carbene ligated ruthenium catalysts was achieved by reducing the size of the substituents at the ortho positions of the N-bound aryl rings.
