Selected Best Metathesis Practices

  • Consider Concentration: Run cross-metathesis reactions concentrated and macrocyclization reactions diluted.
  • Oust Oxygen: Degassing reactions with an inert gas prior to adding a Grubbs catalyst can improve catalyst lifetime and efficiency. Degassing during the reaction has the added benefit of efficiently removing ethylene from metathesis reactions where it is generated.
  • Solvent Selection: Consider solubility and use non-coordinating solvents when possible, such as cyclohexane, toluene, or dichloromethane.
