Abstract: Most important advances in ruthenium catalysts for olefin metathesis achieved during the last 4 years are briefly reviewed. The first part of the survey focuses on new catalytic precursors endowed with inventive N-heterocyclic carbene ligands which have proved highly proficient in a diversity of applications based on metathesis reactions. Part two extends the progress in other types of Ru initiators.
Keywords: Olefin Metathesis, Ruthenium Complexes, Catalysts, N-Heterocyclic Carbenes
