An attempt to provide an environmentally friendly solvent selection guide for olefin metathesis

Author affiliations

Abstract

A range of environmentally conservative solvents was evaluated for application in olefin metathesis. Different commercially available and most frequently applied ruthenium catalysts were employed. The data obtained can be used as a guide to facilitate replacement of environmentally detrimental chlorinated or aromatic solvents with greener reaction media in order to make applications of olefin metathesis in both industry and academia more environmentally benign and sustainable processes.
