Kinetically E-selective macrocyclic ring-closing metathesis

30. January, 2017

Macrocyclic organic molecules are central to discovery of new drugs but their preparation is often challenging because of the energy barrier required for bringing together and fusing the two ends of an acyclic precursor. Ring-closing metathesis (RCM) is a widely used catalytic process that has allowed access to countless biologically active macrocyclic organic molecules even on large scale (up to 200 kilograms).

Molybdenum chloride catalysts for Z-selective olefin metathesis reactions

17. January, 2017

A transformative advance in chemistry has been the development of catalyst-controlled stereoselective olefin metathesis reactions; the original discovery, disclosed in 2009, and many of the subsequent related breakthroughs have been the result of research carried out in the laboratories of Professor Amir Hoveyda.
