Olefin metathesis as a practical synthetic tool


Catalysis is a well-established area that is well known for shortening molecular assembly protocols. The beneficial overall environmental impact emerging from catalytic uses is also well understood. Making use of catalysis, we plan to develop a program focusing on a very important reaction in organic and homogeneous catalysis that has not yet reached its potential; Olefin Metathesis. The 2005 Nobel Prize was awarded to three pioneers in this area for their seminal contributions but the area
