Solvent effects on Grubbs’ pre-catalyst initiation rates

Author affiliations

Abstract

Initiation rates for Grubbs and Grubbs–Hoveyda second generation pre-catalysts have been measured accurately in a range of solvents. Solvatochromic fitting reveals different dependencies on key solvent parameters for the two pre-catalysts, consistent with different mechanisms by which the Grubbs and Grubbs–Hoveyda pre-catalysts initiate.
