New articles are always exciting and in an effort to bring more visibility to the community we’re experimenting with a recurring series of posts featuring the literary achievements of metathesis practitioners. As with all experiments, there are some constraints:
1. This is not an exhaustive list of olefin metathesis ASAP’s
Our primary interest lies in Ruthenium-catalyzed olefin metathesis but examples of other metal- catalyzed transformations will be included. Carbonyl-olefin metathesis literature, though very interesting, is beyond our scope. We’re currently monitoring >50 journals for examples of metathesis transformations. Though we strive for completeness, occasional instances may be unintentionally missed. Please let us know if your work or that of others should be added.
2. Figures are original
As it’s impractical to get permission to reproduce all the authentic graphics, figures are original creations. If you find an error please inform us and it will be corrected.
Constructive comments are always appreciated.
