Eksperimentele ondersoek van Rutenium- indenilideen prekatalisator vir 1-okteenmetatese/Experimental investigation of ruthenium-indenylidene precatalyst for 1-octene metathesis

Olefin metathesis entails the formation of new alkenes (olefins) by the breaking and reforming of C-C double bonds. Many metathesis catalysts have been developed of which the rutheniumindenylidene Grubbs type precatalyst is one. It showed an improvement on activity, stability and lifetime. The focus...

Summary: Olefin metathesis entails the formation of new alkenes (olefins) by the breaking and reforming of C-C double bonds. Many metathesis catalysts have been developed of which the rutheniumindenylidene Grubbs type precatalyst is one. It showed an improvement on activity, stability and lifetime. The focus of this study is the optimisation of this precatalyst.
