Grubbs/hoveyda olefin metathesis

The CC17 monounsaturated acid, octadecene-1,dioic acid, or their ester derivatives used as a reactant is derived from metathesis of a natural oil. Metathesis of heteroatom-substituted olefins and alkynes: Depending on source, the fatty acid or ester often has a preponderance of C16 to C22 component.

The fatty acids or esters used to make esteramines and their derivatives are usually made by hydrolysis or transesterification of triglycerides, which are typically animal or vegetable fats.

Sadly, on the day we published this podcast, Yves Chauvin, who shared a Nobel prize with Grubbs inpassed away. Investigations of the relative activities of these complexes in model ring opening metathesis polymerizations showed a pronounced thermal latency.

What Does the Future Hold. The second is a formal double hydrogen transfer from a methyl group of the H2IMes ligand to a carbene carbon, transforming the H2IMes into a chelating biscarbene ligand.

First proposed by Chauvin: Formally, a double hydrogen transfer from a methyl group of the H2IMes to the initial carbene carbon occurred. The reactions are carried out catalytically, in the presence of a ruthenium alkylidene metathesis catalyst.

The production of 1-octene from linoleic acid using an enzyme-mediated isomerization reaction, followed by a metathesis reaction using ethylene and various metathesis catalysts, has also been described.

Several examples of forming strained aromatic systems is also presented. The reactions of the invention may be carried out in a solvent, and any solvent that is inert towards cross-metathesis may be employed.

Ruthenium; Metathesis; Isomerization; Hydrogenation; Transferhydrogenation; Tandem sequence; Ring-closing metathesis for the synthesis of substituted indenols, indenones, indanones and indenes: A cooling condenser with a vacuum inlet is attached to the middle neck of the flask and a receiving flask is connected to the condenser.

Government has certain rights in this invention.

Grubbs' catalyst

The procedure of Example 1A is generally followed with 2. Exemplary aryl groups contain one aromatic ring or two fused or linked aromatic rings, e.

A Catalyst Influence" J. The results presented may be of interest for the area of syntheses of isoprenoid natural products in general. Synthesis and screening of catalytic activity of two novel mono- and diruthenium carbene complexes 7a and 7b prepared from inexpensive Bisphenol S is described.

The formation of the indenones represents one of the first examples of a tandem ruthenium-mediated ring-closing metathesis RCM -dehydrogenative oxidation reaction whilst the formation of the indanones is proposed to be by way of a RCM-formal redox isomerization sequence.

The method of claim 38, wherein the olefinic substrate is selected from the group consisting of seed oils, alkyl esters of unsaturated fatty acids, and aryl esters of unsaturated fatty acids.

Olefin Metathesis Grubbs Reaction.

Journal of Organometallic Chemistry (v.691, #24-25)

Olefin Metathesis allows the exchange of substituents between different olefins - a transalkylidenation. This reaction was first used in petroleum reformation for the synthesis of higher olefins (Shell higher olefin process - SHOP), with nickel catalysts under high pressure and high temperatures.


The activity in olefin-metathesis could be improved. Exchange with CF3COOAg on the Hoveyda-Grubbs-catalyst provided the first time a catalyst active for the cycloalkynepolymerization. After further modifications of the catalyst, the polymerization could be performed in a living and controlled manner.

"Advanced fine tuning of Grubbs/Hoveyda olefin metathesis catalysts: a further step toward an optimum balance between antinomic properties" J.

Am. Chem. Soc., A ruthenium monothiolate carbene complex (2cat) readily derived from the Grubbs–Hoveyda system is among the newly developed catalysts for Z-selective olefin metathesis reactions.

We have performed density functional theory calculations (B3LYP and M06) to elucidate the detailed mechanism of 2cat-catalyzed homometathesis of terminal olefins. work in olefin metathesis.

– Preceded by decades of research prior to • Chauvin was the first to produce a viable mechanism for olefin metathesis. • Schrock accidently created first stable metal carbene catalyst at MIT. • Grubbs gave synthetic chemists an air stable and water-soluble metal carbene. Olefin metathesis has emerged as a key organometallic reaction for forming C¼C bonds to yield alkenes as well as alkynes.[1] second generation Grubbs-Hoveyda precatalysts bearing a che-lating aryloxide alkylidene unit were studied in detail.
