Abstract

The ruthenium catalysed cross-metathesis of terpenoids with methyl acrylate and methyl methacrylate was used to prepare new terpenoids and to improve, to a large extent, the synthesis of known terpenoids. In particular, the cross-metathesis of mono-unsaturated terpenoids was very efficient whereas the transformation of terpenoids incorporating two double bonds was more difficult due to side reactions. The cross-metathesis reactions were carried out under environmentally friendly conditions either in dimethyl carbonate or under solvent-free conditions.
