Developments in Cis-Selective Ruthenium Olefin Metathesis Catalysts

Endo, K.; Grubbs, R. H.  “Chelated Ruthenium Catalysts for Z-Selective Olefin Metathesis.”  J. Am. Chem. Soc.,  2011, 133, 8525-8527. Recently, I wrote a post describing a series of Ru-olefin metathesis catalysts developed in the Grubbs’ laboratory, containing one sterically demanding X-type ligand as a replacement for the standard chloride ligand of the classic Grubbs-type catalyst.
