Direct Synthesis of Z-Alkenyl Halides through Catalytic Cross-Metathesis

22. February, 2017

Here we show that previously unknown halo-substituted molybdenum alkylidene species are exceptionally reactive and are able to participate in high-yielding olefin metathesis reactions that afford acyclic 1,2-disubstituted Z-Alkenyl halides.

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.
