Abstract: This part of the survey introduces recent developments on de novo designed types of ruthenium complexes used as promoters in olefin metathesis reactions. Encompassing diversity-oriented initiators not illustrated in Part 1, in this second part of the review emphasis is placed on the leading role played by distinct ligands in an exquisite control of metathesis reactions.

Keywords: Olefin Metathesis, Ruthenium Carbenes, Indenylidene Complexes, Arene Ligands, Schiff Bases, Ionic Liquids
