Enyne Metathesis Catalyzed by Ruthenium Carbene Complexes

Carina Storm Poulsen, Robert Madsen

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


Enyne metathesis combines an alkene and an alkyne into a 1,3-diene. The first enyne metathesis reaction catalyzed by a ruthenium carbene complex was reported in 1994. This review covers the advances in this transformation during the last eight years with particular emphasis on methodology development and synthetic applications.
