Conducting olefin metathesis reactions in air : breaking the paradigm
MetadataShow full item record
The first study of low catalyst loading olefin metathesis reactions in air is reported. TON values of up to 7000 were obtained using non-degassed solvents with commercially available pre-catalysts Caz-1, Hov-II and Ind-II. The simple experimental conditions allow olefin metathesis reactions to be carried out on the benchtop using technical grade solvents in air.
