Chemistry and Biochemistry
Mathematics and Natural Sciences
Ruthless ruthenium complex: A novel ruthenium vinylvinylidene complex has been synthesized and characterized. The latent catalyst can be activated at elevated temperatures to perform ring opening metathesis polymerization (ROMP, see figure) and ring closing metathesis reactions.
