Design and Applications of Selective Catalysts for Olefin Metathesis  (Conferences / Seminars / Lectures)

Robert H. Grubbs, the Victor and Elizabeth Atkins Professor of Chemistry, Division of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering at the California Institute of Technology will present: Design and Applications of Selective Catalysts
for Olefin Metathesis

Olefin metathesis catalysts have become one of the tools for the efficient synthesis of complex molecules. Until recently, the catalysts demonstrated poor catalyst controlled selectivity. Over the past couple of years, complexes based on molybdenum, tungsten and ruthenium have been discovered that will produce olefins good to excellent selectivity for the generation of Z olefins both in cross and in ring closing metathesis. New ligands have been developed that result in different selectivities and open new applications of metathesis in the synthesis of an array of complex molecules.
