Cross metathesis (cm) is an attractive alternative to other olefination methods due to the large variety of commercially available olefin starting materials and to the high functional group tolerance of the ruthenium metathesis catalysts.

Work in olefin metathesis – preceded by decades of research prior to 2005 • chauvin was the first to produce a viable mechanism for olefin metathesis • schrock accidently created first stable metal carbene catalyst at mit • grubbs gave synthetic chemists an air stable and water-soluble metal carbene.

Scheme 19): (i) acyclic cross metathesis in which two alkenes undergo intermolecular coupling to form a new olefin or a polymer when carried out on dienes (admet), (ii) ring-closing metathesis (rcm) in which a diene is transformed into a ring, (iii) ring-opening metathesis polymerization (romp), which involves the metathetic opening of cyclic olefins, generally strained although not always, to give polymeric compounds. • metathesis in acid-base chemistry and ion exchange is well defined and simple however, until recently, bond formation in organic reactants is difficult without the presence of catalysts • in the past 30 years or so industry has used olefin metathesis to form alkenes into other alkenes through a variety of mechanisms. Trisubstituted alkenes have been prepared via intermolecular olefin cross-metathesis (cm) between α-olefins and symmetrically 1,1-disubstituted olefins using an imidazolylidene ruthenium benzylidene complex of particular interest is the synthesis of isoprenoid/prenyl groups by a simple solvent-free cm reaction with isobutylene in addition, prenyl groups can also be installed by a cross.
Olefin metathesis is a powerful synthetic process that translates, in its most simplified version, into the combination of two alkenes to generate a new double bond among the reacting partners with the evolution of ethylene gas when dealing with terminal alkenes the procedure can lead to self- and cross-metathesis, ring-closing metathesis, and ring-opening metathesis polymerization. Categories of olefin metathesis: 1 cross metathesis the transalkylidenation of two terminal alkenes with release of ethene is catalyzed by the grubbs catalyst both homocoupling and heterocoupling can occur and the e/z selectivity is hard to control mechanism : 2. Intro to cross metathesis •three main variations –a) cross-metathesis (only address) –b) ring-opening cross-metathesis –c) intermolecular enyne metathesis connon, sj blechert, s angew chem int ed 2003, 42, 1900-1923.

Why cross metathesis not used: •low catalyst activity to effect a reaction without an enthalipic driving force (ring strain) –newer catalysts have been developed. This is a complete examination of the theory and methods of modern olefin metathesis, one of the most widely used chemical reactions in research and industry provides basic information for non-specialists, while also explaining the latest trends and advancements in the field to experts.
Cross metathesis the transalkylidenation of two terminal alkenes under release of ethene, catalyzed by ruthenium carbenoids (grubbs catalyst.
Cross metathesis reaction between two different olefins with similar reactivities can yield an equilibrium distribution of metathesis products in the example below where equivalent ratios of olefin-r 1 and olefin-r 2 are metathesized to yield an equilibrium distribution of 6 metathesis products, 25% each of the homodimers r 1 -r 1 and r 2 -r 2 and 50% of the crossed product r 1 -r 2 , and each having cis and trans isomers.
